Ford Shelby Mustang GT350R

Ford Shelby Mustang GT350R

The Ford Shelby Mustang GT350R is a track focused car. The high revving V8 has flat-plane crankcase that you can take all the way up to 8,200 RPMs.

The 526 horsepower output makes the performance very good, but it is the independent rear suspension that makes a huge difference in handling. Around Laguna Seca’s infamous corkscrew it makes all the difference.

This video features our Heather Hurth in her time enjoying the GT350R on the track. It shows the styling of the American pony car as well as the sound of the V8.

The driving footage was sent to us by Ford as they weren’t allowing us to use our own equipment for filming. Because of this there is some wind noise that makes the engine sound less noticeable. Also, we cut together footage of Heather’s drive which was provided in POV and the hot lap which was interior footage with an instructor driving.
