During our press drive we spun up many miles on the odometer on both the GT350 and the GT350R. We cut and sliced our way up and down Pacific Coast Highway near scenic Monterey, then diced our way around the world-renowned Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
But with Ford no longer producing the GT500, would that kill the Super Snake program? We contacted Shelby American to get the answer. “The 2015 Shelby GT350, with its flat-plane crank 5.2L and high compression, is not set up for supercharging, and this prevents Shelby American from giving it that 750 or 850 horsepower touch,” said Gary Patterson, VP of International and Strategic Sales at Shelby, who jokingly calls himself the Director of Fun. “But once we realized the power and performance we could get from using the 5.0L Coyote, there was no question whether or not we’d continue to produce the Super Snake.
The 2.3L turbo engine gets the Ford Mustang going in a hurry and the tune, plus Ford Performance exhaust gives it a louder growl. Shelby tapped Ford Performance for the suspension as well, which lowers the Stang and gives it spirited handling.
But to Shelby purists the Holy Grail of Shelby is the 1965 GT350—the first one. Carroll and his team massaged a handful of 1965 Mustang fastbacks to compete in SCCA Production-B racing.
