Ford has decorated a Shelby GT350 as a tribute to legendary U.S. Air Force pilot Bob Hoover and his P-51 stunt plane “Ole Yeller.” It will be auctioned off for charity, which is wonderful. But why’d they have to go and make it look like a tuner car from 2001?
Mustang. Pony car. Ponies. Horses. But how many horse-powers does the 2015 Shelby GT350 put out with its magical, naturally-aspirated, America-tacular flat plane crank 5.2-liter V8? Now we know for realsies: 526 horsepower, 429 pound-feet of torque.
One of our readers sent us an interesting find from a Cars and Coffee event in Irvine, California this morning: a car that appears to be the next Shelby GT350, cleverly hidden under a Mustang-shaped tarp. Whaaaa? (UPDATE: No it's not.)
Big muscle isn't for everyone, but those who are fans of lazy V8 power tend to like their cars fast in a straight line and little else. For many, this leaves the Shelby GT350 out in the cold, but would you drive it?
Someone working setup for the GM display at this week's Chicago Auto Show managed to snag a few images of the heretofore unseen 2012 Shelby GT350. Though the GT350 appears to be hanging out near the Ford booth, this introduction will actually mark the first time Shelby's unveiled a vehicle on their own at an auto show.
It may seem like sacrilege to ask this but, does the Shelby name mean anything anymore? The 2011 GT350 seems like a 'Stang with a supercharger and a chubby body kit. Considering the upgrade's $34K asking price, color us unexcited.
