Ford Performance recently released a new video featuring some development and testing footage of the forthcoming Shelby GT350. We get to see and hear the car in action, which is pretty exciting. However, we also get to hear from Vehicle Dynamics Supervisor/Suspension Technical Specialist Eric Zinkosky about the car’s performance potential.
“This car will want for nothing in anyone’s eyes in terms of its capabilities,” Eric said. “We have a have a brand-new powertrain, a brand-new concept. (It is) lightweight, nimble, fast, (and) responsive.”
That’s a bold statement about the new car’s performance, but he didn’t stop there.
“It will be a Mustang. Mustang has a character and Mustang is fundamentally American, and Carroll Shelby was a big part of that,” he added. “I think Carroll would have been extremely excited about what’s going on here. He saw little bits of it before he passed. He knew where we were headed with this, and he has been a part of the plan.”

As shown in this video, Ford is definitely keeping Carroll’s spirit alive with the new Shelby GT350…
If those videos don’t get you pumped up about the new Shelby, we don’t know what will. “This new car will be beyond what anyone can ever imagine,” Eric enthused. “It’s going to be legendary.”
