Ready or not, here it comes. After months of teases, leaks, and rumors, the FordShelby GT 350 Mustang has officially been unveiled. With a technical spec sheet longer than a quarter-mile, this Shelby is a beast on the strip and legal on the streets, packing a 5.2-liter V8 engine, which promises more than 500 horses and a torque peak above 400 lb-ft. It also uses a flat-plane crankshaft, a first for a Ford production vehicle, and is controlled through a six-speed manual trans with a standard Torsen limited-slip differential. An optional engine oil cooler and transmission cooler are also available as part of the brand's Track Pack. A wider front track and recalibrated springs with a lower ride height also help provide tighter control for the driver and to help reduce drag. Inside, Recaro front seats and a flat-bottom steering wheel help with the track-day events along with five different driver control modes that adjust the traction, brake, stability, throttle, and steering settings. Capping off the look and the power, four exhaust tips will deliver a throaty howl to scare off anyone looking to challenge its seat at the top of the foot chain.
