Shelby added a new rear look to create the GT350 from a 2011 Mustang GTCAPTIONBy Shelby AmericanThe new GT350 is a supercharged 2011 Ford Mustang GT that will go on sale in the spring with a combined pricetag — both for the car then Shelby American’s modifications — at more than $60,000. Shelby American says more than 100 devotees have already placed orders.
Shelby, 87, says the new GT350 has “got some of the old and some of the new:”
The supercharging should push the horsepower of Ford’s new 5-liter engine past 500, up from 412 of stock, and it has the look of the original — white with blue stripes. He says he loves the look of the front and rear ends, as well as the braking and handling.
To his regret, he can’t behind the wheel and put the car through hot paces anymore. “I’m three-quarters blind now and I don’t drive fast anymore,” said the automotive legend. Ford will continue to make its licensed Shelby GT500 with the 5.4-liter V-8, but the Shelby GT350 should be more nimble and plenty fast on the track.
