Watch the 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Lap VIR

3

Ford is showing off just how track-ready the all-new 2016 Mustang Shelby GT350 is.

It is being reported that the Shelby GT350 will pack over 520 hp from its 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V8 with a flat-plane crankshaft. While the American automaker hasn’t released exact specifications and figures on the new sports car, Ford Performance has released a video of it taking a leisurely lap around Virginia International Raceway.

From bumper to bumper, the Shelby GT350 Mustang packs several improvements over the standard production Mustang including a stiffened chassis, staggered 19-inch wheels and a hardcore braking system. Naturally there’s an upgraded suspension setup that not only brings the GT350 lower to the ground, but Ford’s use of MagneRide dampers help continuously adjust the stiffness every 10 milliseconds.

    Sounds awesome – wish we had more car sound and less music.

    That thing HOWLS like a banshee! It’s a shame the music obscures the engine noise …

    That flat plane crank was a great R&D investment – high revving for great driving fun, but also that sound will cause folks to dip their toe into the go fast pedal.
