After months of anticipation, numerous spy shots and endless rumors, the wait is finally over. This is the new Shelby GT350 Mustang, the most extreme iteration yet of the sixth generation model. Going by the spec sheet and details that have been revealed, the Shelby GT350 Mustang is one heck of a beast. For starters, under the hood sits nothing less than the most powerful naturally aspirated motor ever fitted to a production Ford. The 5.2-liter V8 engine that powers the car uses a flat-plane crankshaft, a first for a production V8 from Ford, and churns out more than 500hp and 400 pound-feet of torque. Ford further says the engine will be a “high-revving” one with better cylinder breathing and an even better noise. V8. A six-speed manual gearbox and Torsen limited-slip differential will be standard, while an engine oil cooler and transmission cooler will be available as part of a Track Pack.
