2017 Shelby GT350: What You Need to Know

2017 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang

The Ultimate Mustang

Ford proclaims that the Shelby GT350 Mustang is the most track-ready, street-legal Mustang ever. It is hard to argue the point. Where past Shelby Mustangs were abundantly powerful and capable of doing smoky burnouts, their handling in recent years fell a little short of what might have been expected in a world-class sports car.

The new Shelby GT350, introduced last year and returning for 2017 with few changes, is a different animal. It is lighter, delivers sharper, better-balanced handling, and features a flat-crank 5.2-liter V8 engine that sounds and responds more like a racecar engine than a motor meant for the street. In this regard, the Shelby GT350 is very much in the original sports car mold. It is a car that can be driven legally on public roads to and from racetracks, where it can compete successfully.

For hardcore racing enthusiasts, Ford also offers the Shelby GT350R. Think of the GT350 as the better daily driver. For all you need to know about the Shelby GT350 and GT350R Mustang, read on.
