Shelby Mustang GT350  600x380 at Shelby GT350 and GT350R Get 2018 Model Year

If you didn’t like the look of the new Ford Mustang and were worried your beloved Shelby GT350 could get affected by it, rest easy because the high-performance pony is safe… at least for another year. Ford just announced they are extending Shelby GT350 and GT350R models availability to 2018 model year. 

So you can still buy these bad boys with the body you are used to and like very much. It would been pity if Ford were to discontinue these models, not just because they are amazing sports/muscle cars for the track, but also because a lot has gone into designing them:

The 2018 Shelby GT350 and the R model will continue to offer the 5.2-liter V8 FPC engine which produces 526 horsepower and 429 lb.-ft. of torque, plus standard engine oil, transmission and differential coolers, braking system with vented 15.5-inch two-piece front rotors and six-piston Brembo calipers along with the MagneRide damping system. In terms of tech features you get SYNC 3, voice-activated navigation and nine-speaker audio system. An available Convenience Package for GT350 models replaces Recaro manual seats with six-way power, heated and cooled sport seats with Miko suede inserts for both driver and passenger.
