2018 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R

The GT350R stands out as arguably the top-of-the-line muscle car in Ford’s history, driven by the most advanced and powerful naturally aspirated engine ever featured in a Mustang. Its extraordinary performance is complemented by exceptional handling and braking capabilities.

At the heart of the GT350R is its 5.2L, 32-valve V-8 engine, internally known as “Voodoo.” Uniquely crafted for prolonged high-speed operation, this engine is exclusive to the GT350, standing alone in the Ford lineup with its flat-plane crankshaft. Central to the car’s identity, this design aids in efficient exhaust routing, scavenging, and enhanced high-speed balance.

Roaring at an impressive 7,500 RPM, it produces a distinctive howl, delivering 526 HP through a new dual-mass flywheel, twin-disc clutch, and an updated Tremec TR3160 6-speed manual transmission to a Torsen 3.73:1 differential. The GT350 comes standard with Magneride damping, quad-tip dual exhaust, Brembo disc brakes, air conditioning, AM/FM stereo, Autodim rear-view mirror, keyless entry, and HID projector headlamps

R-model specifics include a larger front splitter and rear spoiler, stiffer springs and sway bars, transmission and differential oil coolers, and 19-inch carbon fiber wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. For the ultimate track day experience, the GT350R remains an unparalleled force to be reckoned with.
