If you’ve been chomping at the bit to get behind the wheel of a new Shelby GT350, your time is drawing closer. The GT350 and the R-model version of the latest Shelby corner carver rolled off the production line in Flat Rock, Michigan, today.
“This is a special day for all Mustang enthusiasts,” Bill Ford, executive chairman, Ford Motor Company, said. “We have taken the GT350 formula to the next level of innovation, style and performance. Today the legend continues.”
We rode in pre-production versions of these cars a few weeks back, and we can happily report that the car definitely has taken those categories to a new level. Now that they are in production, customers will soon be able to enjoy the fruits of the Ford Performance group’s engineering labor.
