The Ford Mustang was a huge sales success when introduced in the spring of 1964. However, Lee Iacocca, Ford Division General Manager, was concerned that the Mustang, while selling well, lacked a performance image and did not fit into the Ford Division Total Performance marketing program.
To correct the image issue, Iacocca called Carroll Shelby and asked if he could make the Mustang into a sports car with a winning performance image. The result was the 1965 Shelby Mustang GT350. This latest Shelby American performance car earned its sports car and performance image on road race circuits across America. Competing in the Sports Car Club of America’s B Production Class against the Corvette Stingray, Jaguar XKE, Sunbeam Tiger and various Ferrari models, the new GT350 dominated the competition, winning the 1965 B Production National Championship while building a performance image for the Ford Mustang.
Ford calls its raucous, high-revving 5.2 liter V-8 the Voodoo, and it’s only available on the Shelby GT350 and GT350R. It’s tuned to whip up 526 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque. equipped with a Tremec 6 Speed Manual Transmission the GT350R does 0-60 in 3.9 Seconds. Accenting that paint scheme, you’ll find plenty of black parts throughout the exterior, ranging from the rear wing, 19-inch wheels, and the front fascia. While the wing and wheels are finished in gloss black, they are made out of carbon fiber, a touch that is unique to the R. This Shelby GT350 R is painted in Shadow back with Matte Stripes and red accents and is one of 126 cars in this configuration for 2018.
