Ford Shelby® GT350 Mustang With More Than 500 Horsepower

All-new Ford Shelby® GT350 Mustang has more than 500 horsepower and torque peak above 400 lb.-ft. from a flat-plane 5.2-liter V8 engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The 180-degree, flat-plane layout permits a cylinder firing order that alternates between cylinder banks, reducing the overlap of exhaust pressure pulses. When combined with cylinder-head and valvetrain advancements, this permits better cylinder breathing, further extending the performance envelope of the V8. An all-new integrated driver control system allows selection of five unique modes that tailor ABS, stability control, traction control, steering effort, throttle mapping, MagneRide tuning and exhaust settings, depending on driver preference. A standard Ford-tuned Torsen limited-slip differential optimizes cornering grip and straight-line traction.
