The 2016 Shelby GT350R has been designed and engineered in the same spirit, delivering never-before-seen track capability from a Mustang – thanks to innovations in aerodynamics, chassis engineering and light-weighting.
Today, you get the chance to own one of the most track-ready road-going production Mustangs ever built. This particular 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R currently auctioned on Bring A Trailer is finished in Deep Impact Blue with over-the-top black racing stripes and Shelby GT350R badging.
Lightweight carbon fiber wheels are standard on Shelby GT350R, making Ford the first major automaker to introduce this innovative wheel technology as standard equipment. The 19×11-inch front and 19×11.5-inch rear wheels provide approximately 13 pounds of unsprung weight reduction per wheel and offer higher levels of stiffness than equivalent aluminum wheels.
The interior features an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel as well as Recaro sport seats trimmed in Ebony cloth and Miko suede along with color-coordinated door panels and carpets. The seller also indicates that the car doesn’t have stereo or air conditioning, and also features the standard R-model omitted rear seat.
This Mustang is powered by a 5.2-liter Voodoo V8 which was the first-ever production V8 from Ford with a flat-plane crankshaft – the most powerful naturally aspirated engine Ford has ever produced with more than 500 horsepower and more than 400 lb.-ft. of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a Tremec TR-3160 six-speed manual transmission and a 3.73:1 Torsen limited-slip differential that were optimized for cornering grip and straight-line traction, while an electronically modulated rear-mounted air-to-oil differential cooler maintains ideal temperatures during track driving.
The Shelby GT350R has only 209 indicate miles and is now offered by its seller with complete manufacturer’s literature, a car cover, a GT350 ownership box, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Georgia title in the seller’s name. Don’t miss this chance to acquire a Mustang that can dominate any race track!
