2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R

An options package for the 2017 Shelby GT350 is the GT350R which adds a large carbon fiber rear decklid spoiler, front splitters, red outlined stripes, red front grille badge, and interior deletes to make it lighter including no rear seats.

“Ford Performance is always listening to customer feedback,” said Dave Pericak, global director, Ford Performance. “At the end of last year we started offering a back seat option for Shelby GT350R due to customer demand. Now, we have adjusted the packages available to continue to provide more of what customers want on the Shelby GT350 Mustang.”

The most track-ready, street-legal Mustang ever produced – the Shelby® GT350R – features lightweight 19″ carbon-fiber wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot® Sport Cup 2 tires, a larger front splitter, unique chassis tuning, a carbon-fiber rear wing and red accents. The MagneRide™ Damping System passes an electric current through iron-infused hydraulic fluid to adjust its continuously controlled dampers independently at each corner – 1,000x per second. MagneRide, an aluminum strut-tower brace, and coolers for the engine oil, transmission and differential are all standard on every GT350 for 2017. The Shelby GT350 exclusive interior features aluminum trim and other unique touches like a flat-bottom steering wheel wrapped in Alcantara® and leather. RECARO® sport front seats trimmed in a mix of Carbon Weave cloth and Miko® sueded cloth help hold you firmly in place – turn after turn
