The new generation of Ford Mustang, as you may know, is being sold in Europe for the first time in recent memory, which is greta, except that Ford is not bringing here that high-performance Shelby GT350 model. Apparently, Americans don’t trust the Europeans with too much power!
But do not despair, because help is at hand from the German importer and tuner of American cars, Geiger Cars. The firm is now offering the 2016 Shelby GT350 in Germany with all of its 533 horsepower and 580 Nm of torque, plus the Technology and Track packages.
Compared to the standard Mustang GT, Shelby GT350 gets a flat-crank 5.2 liter V8, 6-speed Tremec transmission, Torsen limited-slip differential, and sport suspension with adjustable dampers plus 19-inch aluminum wheels, Brembo brakes and Michelin pilot Super Sport (295/35ZR19 and 305/35ZR19).
But most people will buy the Shelby GT350 just for the way it looks. The aero kit on this bad boy consists of a custom front apron featuring a big front spoiler lip, custom Shelby grille, sport bonnet, side skirts and vents, rear diffuser with integrated tailpipes, and trunk spoiler. It’s not just for the show. The kit is also a work of art aerodynamically.
