Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 thunders in with upgraded aero, tires, brakes

Among them are a new set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires specifically designed for the auto and a recalibrated MagneRide computer-controlled suspension system.

Ford furthermore says the Mustang Shelby GT350's standard MagneRide active suspension has been updated with recalibrated springs and revised damping.

But performance wasn't the only focus for the updated GT350, the cabin was updated with more amenities.

The GT350's new 19-inch aluminum wheels come wrapped in bespoke Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, 295/35 in the front and 305/56 rear to be exact. It is once is connected to a familiar six-speed manual transmission.

Topline: In a press release Monday, Ford announced changes to the Shelby GT350 for the 2019 model year, and its nothing but good news for racing junkies.

"It's a rewarding auto to drive on track for amateurs as well as pros", he said. The electric power-assist steering, anti-lock braking and electronic stability control have also been adjusted, drawing from hundreds of hours of competitive track testing.

Created to deliver faster lap times and better performance overall, the 2019 GT350 has a number of aerodynamic improvements including an all-new rear spoiler with an optional Gurney flap. As usual the 2019 GT350 will act as the ideal balance between the regular Mustang and the track-bred GT350R, but Ford consulted with Billy Johnson, FIA World Endurance driver for Ford GT, to help the GT350 achieve better performance on the circuit. "It inspires confidence in corners and makes you feel like a superhero". Inside, drivers will find new power-adjustable front seats and revised door panels with dark slate Miko suede upholstery. The performance vehicle will come available in Velocity Blue, Ford Performance Blue, and can come with factory-painted racing stripes in several different colors.

However, it appears the 2019 GT350 goes without the design changes seen in the revised Mustang range, meaning the headlights and tail-lights are carried over from the outgoing model.
