Ford Performance has debuted the all-new Shelby FP350S track-only model.

Designed for road racing in Trans Am, NASA and SCCA club racing events, the Ford Performance Shelby FP350S is non-street legal and joins a long line of turn-key race cars that include the FR500C, BOSS 302R and 302S, as well as the most recent IMSA Continental Tire SportCar Championship-winning Ford Shelby GT350R-C, unveiled at SEMA last month.

Under the hood of the race car is a 5.2-liter V8 engine prepared by Ford Performance Parts, paired to a Tremec 3160 manual transmission with integral oil pump, shifter and 3.73 final drive ratio. The unibody chassis has been modified with seam welding while race-oriented suspension components include electric steering calibrations and ultra-high-performance brake system.
