Ford Mustang Shelby GT350: New details on one of our favorite cars

2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350

New 19-inch aluminium wheels come equipped with GT350-specific Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres - 295/35 front and 305/35 rear - the tread pattern and compound both having been optimised for the vehicle.

Aerodynamic improvements come in the form of an "optimized grille closeout" to improve airflow up front, and an all-new rear spoiler with optional Gurney flap - because racecar - at the rear.

Ford reveals GT350 updates, but the one change United Kingdom customers are waiting for remains elusive. The unit produces the same 526 horsepower (392 kilowatts) and 429 pound-feet (581 Newton-meters) of torque, and comes paired to a Tremec six-speed manual transmission. The wing is said to have been designed and tuned with experience gained from the wind tunnel development of both the upcoming Shelby GT500 and Mustang race cars.

"It's a rewarding vehicle to drive on track for amateurs and pros alike, while making the driver feel like a superhero".

Several of Sporting's players are protesting about de Carvalho's behaviour, with some even accusing him of "psychological violence".

However, it appears the 2019 GT350 goes without the design changes seen in the revised Mustang range, meaning the headlights and tail-lights are carried over from the outgoing model.

The new Mustang Shelby GT350 will be released in the United States early in 2019, but Ford Southern Africa say there are unfortunately no plans for right hand-drive production, so we won't be getting it in South Africa. "It inspires confidence in corners and makes you feel like a superhero". The electric power steering system has also been updated thanks to hundreds of hours of competitive track testing. Inside, drivers will find new power-adjustable front seats and revised door panels with dark slate Miko suede upholstery.

Inside a new 12-speaker B&O PLAY audio system by Harman is now available and the SYNC 3 infotainment system is accessed via an 8-inch touschscreen.

Finishing off the list of exterior mods, Ford has added Velocity Blue and Ford Performance Blue to the range of available colors. Optional factory-painted over-the-top racing stripes are available in high-gloss Shadow Black, Oxford White or Kona Blue. The GT350 hasn't received the styling updates that debuted on the rest of the 2018 Mustang lineup, which had put a question mark over its future in the lineup. What they can not opt for, though, is the same aesthetic or functional updates Ford made to the standard Mustang for this year.
