2016 Ford Mustang GT350R
Most fans are still under impression of the new Ford Mustang. They might be little disappointed with model they got for half-century anniversary, but looks like that company had some other plans. Recently, we had a chance to see one variation of the ‘Stang, as 2016 Shelby GT350. This was hot news, but all fans and enthusiasts will have a chance to get new variation. The 2016 Ford Mustang GT350R could be latest addition to Mustang family. This is performance boost version of regular GT350. According to what we saw in the past, we can guess what to expect from new model, until official information are released.
2016 Ford Mustang GT350R concept
Back in ’60, when GT350R was launched, we had a fight among pony cars for domination. Shortly after regular Mustang, and upgraded GT350, Ford launched tuned version, GT350R. It was a vehicle made to beat other muscle cars. Specially tuned and almost stripped off, this version became pretty popular among lovers of these cars. The GT350R was modified to give best performance. It had only base options, cutting much of its weight. Then engine was boosted, and a lot of fiber-glass was used. We guess that same fate will experience 2016 Ford Mustang GT350R.
2016 Ford Mustang GT350R engine
We are sure that new 2016 Ford Mustang GT350R will have same or slightly tuned engine as regular Shelby GT350. Some rumors appeared that new powertrain is being prepared for it, but it is not likely that Ford will change its standard 5.0-l V8 beast, made for all GT vehicles. However, this unit is expected tuned and adjusted for 2016 Mustang GT350R. But, there is a rumor, telling that new Shelby GT350 will get new drivetrain. It could be 5.2-l V8. This could be also placed under the hood of GT350R variation, but this is not confirmed yet. Experts are telling that new GT models could deliver over 600 hp, and we expect that tuned Shelby deliver more than regular, which could be near 700 hp.
