Default 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R Debuts



Quote:
The 2020 Ford Mustang GT350R arrives benefiting from technology that trickles down from the upcoming GT500. While perhaps a little less exciting, there are some new colors to choose, too.

The 2020 GT350R gets new front suspension geometry. The revised parts also include new steering rack, revised electric power steering settings, and a redesigned high-trail steering knuckle from the GT500.

On the outside, buyers can now order Grabber Lime and Twister Orange exterior colors for folks who want their GT350 to be attention-grabbing even if bystanders don't hear the engine's roar. Iconic Silver and Red Hot Metallic are two new, less vibrant hues. The high-powered Mustang also gains the FordPass Connect system that allows for using a phone app for finding the vehicle, locking or unlocking the doors, monitoring fuel and oil levels, and following maintenance alerts.

Otherwise, the 2020 GT350 and GT350R carryover from before. Under the hood, there's a 5.2-liter V8 with a flat-plane crankshaft giving it a different sound from other Mustangs. The mill produces 526 horsepower (392 kilowatts) and 429 pound-feet (582 Newton-meters) of torque. It revs to an impressive 8,250 rpm. The only gearbox option is a six-speed manual.

The GT350R retains the same powertrain but makes more track-focused features available, including carbon fiber wheels and revised body kit with a different front splitter and more aggressive rear wing.

If you're hungry for more power, then the Mustang Shelby GT500 is on the way with a 5.2-liter supercharged V8 making 760 horsepower (567 kilowatts) and 625 pound-feet (847 Newton-meters) of torque, while routing through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. It can speed allegedly speed from 0-100-0 mph in 10.6 seconds and reach a factory-limited top speed of 180 miles per hour (289.6 kilometers per hour).

Default Why the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R Costs More Than a GT500

Why the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R Costs More Than a GT500
For around the same money, which Shelby would you pick?

The 2020 Shelby GT500 is Ford's most powerful street-legal car ever, making an impressive 760 hp. The GT350R is still a potent player, but it only boasts 526 hp from its V-8. So more power means a higher price tag, right? Well, that's actually not the case. While the GT500 starts at $73,995, Ford says the 2020 GT350R's starting price is $535 higher at $74,530. Both prices include a destination fee and gas guzzler tax.

So how can this be? We asked Ford to explain the price difference. "The Shelby GT350R is a very limited-production model, truly the ultimate Mustang for driving purists who want an ever more track-capable car," said Jiyan Cadiz, Ford's North American Icon Communications and Media Relations manager, in an email.

As we noted in an earlier story, the two cars have very different missions. Much of their personality differences come down to their engines, which are distinct 5.2-liter V-8s. The GT350 and its R sibling get a lightweight flat-plane-crank V-8 that enables a sky-high redline of 8,200 rpm, making it an ideal track weapon. Meanwhile, the GT500's supercharged cross-plane V-8 is an expert at providing low-end torque. Cadiz puts it this way: "Shelby GT500 is more about being the pinnacle of Mustang performance and technology for the customer who wants it all. Similar to the jump from GT350 to GT350R, the Carbon Fiber Track Pack makes GT500 even more track-capable."

Yes, it's easy to forget the GT350R boasts standard carbon-fiber goodies. The GT350R features 19-inch carbon-fiber wheels, a rear seat delete, and a big carbon-fiber rear wing as standard. On the GT500, a Carbon Fiber Track Package is an $18,500 option, providing 20-inch carbon-fiber wheels, an adjustable carbon-fiber wing, and rear seat delete.

The GT350R is paired exclusively to a six-speed manual transmission. The GT500, on the other hand, mates to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission; sadly, there's no manual.

The 350/350R one of the few cars that stills makes me super fan boi excited, because some day my monkey ass will actually be able to get one.

Wow, ton of great motor changes - wasn't ever quite interested enough at stock power levels. Is it now essentially a GT500 with a 6-speed and flat crank?

Looks like it's ready for mods from the factory now.
Fat House Fabs makes some big numbers with their turbo kits, but the videos don't mention in detail everything that's been done (required) to do so.

I like this:

Footage @ 1min40sec

4,183 lbs doing that

That is sweet, but I'd be happy with a whipple 3.0 - great driving position, visibility, folding seats and a trunk for dicking around town while still trapping ~140? when you want to mash it. I drive my Cobra to do errands sometimes and it's a bit ridiculous when the grocery bags fall over in the passenger seat

WORD. A screaming high compression NA V8 with a manual that shifts like a bolt action rifle and unlike the 1LE, you can actually see out and around from inside.

I did a quick Autotrader search and there's quite a few used ones for really good prices.

You want the new motor, or a warranty. Lots of motors grenaded, especially early on - maybe Skylab knows the root cause since he has one...

Cool, dude has a set of nutz to take that on. Re: the motors that did let go, were particular cylinders getting starved, or was it more generalized with pump and/or squirters, other? I know some burned lots of oil and others were tight, but unsure if that was correlated. How much oil does yours burn? Anyway, it was enough to keep me away, as I would've whippled it, popped the motor, and had a project or repair bill to deal with.

4S is spicy this week - can't decide if he needs to get laid or got laid too many times! Hopefully the latter, but either way, the demeanor is pleasing

My first car was a 66 mustang, my second mustang was a 5.0LX 5mt Fox, red w/blk interior that I spent waaaay too much time working on (NA 300rwhp, lots of other hard parts I won't go into). I miss having a car that was just about driving, and a time when 300whp was serious, also when tires were cheap enough to burn a set off every summer I daily drove both, the Fox in Vermont winters, the 66 in Massachusetts winters, probably why it's in such bad shape now; I regret selling the fox when I did, but life choices and all that jazz.

the GT350 whispers to my in my sleep, "buy me, buy me, you know you want me" I wake in a cold sweat sometimes, and hastliy check my night stand to make sure my wallet is still there, and then check my cell phone to make sure I haven't called the local Ford dealer to put a deposit down on one....

I have the Boss302 motor at 321 CI in the Cobra, with the TF Twisted RR heads on it.

350 HP/350 TQ that probably has 800+ hours of track time on it. It has been dead reliable. It's such an underappreciated motor.

I don't know about it being under appreciated, it just has a low power ceiling by today's standards if you actually do anything with it but the occasional dyno pull.

THe new stuff has a higher ceiling, but you also either sliding it into a newer (heavier) chassis, or making an older chassis nose-heavy; there is a reason why the LS gets swapped into everything now.

IMO, the GT 350/R is still the S550 to have as far as being a driver's car goes. Could care less about the GT 500. Can only thank the GT 500 for helping to make the Gen 2 5.2 Voodoo engine better and hopefully taking some ADM attention away from the GT 350/R models. Not like I could afford one - would have a better chance at a lightly optioned C8 (at non-ADM pricing).

Ever since i drove the GT350 at Laguna Seca i want one but the boss 302 is still fast as **** and way more of a car than i need for daily use.

I doubt i will ever sell it and will likely end up buying a $120,000 ish 4 axle truck as my next vehicle purchase.

c/n no gt350 for me.

I'm impressed by the current gen GT, let alone the GT350 or other specialty models; definitely more than enough for the street, but the GT350 has a different appeal; to paraphrase Dennis Leary:
"Gives me that special feeling in the cockles of my heart; Maybe below the cockles, Maybe in the sub cockle area, Maybe in the liver, maybe in the kidneys, Maybe even in the colon, I don't know"

I long for like 2/3's - 3/4's of a GT350 in weight and power; still runs out to 8,200 (or higher) but is lighter and has less power, like 2,500lbs-3,000lbs of high winding fury; not going to happen from the factory, but I can dream damn it. Miata is good for 7,500 now right? that + turbo would probably scratch my itch.
