Last Updated: December 16, 2016By Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Ford Performance presented us the Shelby FP350S, which is qualified to contest in Trans Am, NASA, and SCCA events for club racing.

The track-only model based off the Shelby GT350. It gets an boostedd 5.2-liter V-8 engine made by Ford Performance Parts. They didn’t mentioned that it was made of horsepower. The standard Shelby GT350 makes 526 ponies and redlines at a shrieking 8,200 rpm.

Other upgrades are an Tremec 3160 manual transmission, FIA-compliant roll cage and race-oriented exhaust. Also a special suspension parts including electric steering calibrations and an ultra-high-performance brake system. The unibody chassis are much stronger now because of a seam welding. Decorating the outside of a car is a Ford Performance splitter as well as an manageable rear wing made from carbon fiber.

It has nineteen-inch wheels as usual. Customers can choose a package with 18-inch race wheels that are forged. Buyers can choose custom exterior graphics. They are also optional. Inside the vehicle, look for FIA-compliant Sparco seats for racing and a  steering wheel that can quick discharge.

This vehicle is the newest in a series of turn-key race vehicles from Ford Performance

This vehicle is the newest in a series of turn-key race vehicles from Ford Performance. Year before, Ford presented the Mustang GT350R-C. That car later went on to win this year’s IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge. Ford then showed the Mustang GT4 that is made similar to that car, to contest in a huge variety of racing series involving IMSA, Pirelli World Challenge, and the GT4 European Series.

Ford didn’t told us exactly when to expect the FP350S. They just said that we will “soon” be able to order all over the U.S. at Ford dealerships.
