It really isn’t that difficult to understand why the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R has been the best-seller among sports coupes around the world. It is a performance car that is also affordable to own.
The Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R costs from $55,000 and it comes with the 526 horsepower engine, which is the V8 Voodoo 5.2 litre offering 429 torque. While this allows it to take over the affordable performance market it also means that it can take on the premium heavyweights.
We have been treated to a clip of the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R going around the Laguna Seca and it went around it in 1 minute and 35.11 seconds. The lap test was courtesy of Motor Trends, who was just as surprised as we were to see it beating the BMW M4 GTS.
The BMW GTS managed a time of 1 minute 37.66 seconds, and this comes in with a price tag almost double that of the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R.
