PRECISE, BALANCED, and RACE-INSPIRED
Owners of the Mustang Shelby GT350 – the most balanced and race-inspired Mustang ever, have an exclusive opportunity to learn about the latest advances in track-tested and developed tire, aerodynamics and chassis technology that make this the exceptional automobile that it is.

The GT350 Track Attack is a complimentary one-day high-performance driving experience for Mustang Shelby GT350 / GT350R owners. This is an exclusive opportunity to feel the exhilaration and legendary performance while exploring the limits with the help of the Ford Performance Racing School Professional Instructors in a controlled environment.
“A WHOLE NEW LEVEL OF PERFORMANCE DRIVING.”
Mustang Shelby GT350’s exclusive high-revving, 526 horsepower, 5.2-liter V8 remains the most powerful naturally aspirated Ford production engine ever. Delivering 429 lb.-ft. of torque at a blistering 8,250-rpm redline, it’s mated to a track-proven and precise-shifting Tremec® 6-speed manual transmission.
According to Billy Johnson, a driver for the FIA World Endurance Ford GT and IMSA Mustang GT4 programs and development driver for the GT350, the result of the new GT350’s aerodynamics tuning, revised brake calibration, and much greater downforce is a more balanced, higher-performing car on the straightaways and especially in the corners.
“Along with improved grip, brake and chassis refinements, Shelby GT350 brings a whole new level of performance driving, it’s a rewarding car to drive on track for amateurs and pros alike, while making the driver feel like a superhero. It’s confidence inspiring in corners and begs to be pushed harder and to take corners faster.”– Billy Johnson
