2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 gains improvements

The Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 has been given an update for the 2019 model year, making it an even more desirable version of the revered pony car. According to its makers, the updated Shelby GT350 features input from Mustang road course racing programmers as well as the upcoming Shelby GT500.

Visually, the car looks about the same as before, but there are new 19-inch aluminium wheels with staggered Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres (295/35 front and 305/35 rear). The exterior also sports an all-new rear spoiler with an optional Gurney flap and an aerodynamically-optimised front grille.

Handling improvements come courtesy of the revised MagneRide active suspension, which boasts recalibrated springs and revised damping. The car’s electric power-assist steering and three-mode electronic stability control have also been retuned based on feedback obtained from competitive track testing.

No changes under the bonnet, as the 5.2 litre Voodoo flat-plane crankshaft V8 continues to churn out 526 hp and 582 Nm of torque. Similarly, the Tremec TR-3160 six-speed manual gearbox remains the only transmission choice. While the engine is the same, stopping power is improved thanks to six-piston front and four-piston rear caliper Brembo brakes.

Inside, new trim materials are available as well as power-adjustable seats with Miko suede inserts, the latter being a more comfortable alternative to the standard Recaro race seats. Also available is a 12-speaker B&O Play sound system by Harman, which works with the now standard 8-inch SYNC 3 infotainment system.

Ford also offers new colours for the 2019 Shelby GT350, including Velocity Blue and Ford Performance Blue. Optional factory-painted racing stripes are available in high-gloss Shadow Black, Oxford White or Kona Blue. Mirror-mounted Shelby Cobra Projection Lamps come standard in the available Technology Package.
