If youâ€™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.
â€œThis is a special day for all Mustang enthusiasts,â€ Bill Ford, executive chairman, Ford Motor Company, said. â€œWe have taken the GT350 formula to the next level of innovation, style and performance. Today the legend continues.â€
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 groupâ€™s engineering labor.
