Ford’s 2015 Shelby GT350
The Ford Shelby is by far one of the most popular and well-known cars ever produced. What started as manufacturing under Shelby American in 1965, Ford would turn the Shelby variant of the Mustang into a part of true Americana.
50 years later, Shelby continues to be one of the most sought-after cars on the market. This is especially the case for the 2015 Shelby GT350, which has taken the standard of perfection that Ford instills and taken it to the next level.
Here is a look at the 2015 Shelby GT350, including some of the beautiful features that will have car fans falling in love with Ford all over again.
More Power Than Ever Before
Die-hard Shelby fans had been wanting more power for years and Ford finally delivered in 2015. The Shelby GT350 comes with a 5.2-liter V-8 engine that kicks out more than 500 horsepower every time a driver steps on the peddle. Ford aimed to mimic an engine like the Ferrari 458 Speciale for the Shelby like they have in the past, but they exceeded expectations by making an engine that was equally as powerful as it was economical. And because the GT350 is geared for the tracks, you can bet that it will keep up with other cars like the BMW M4, Camaro Z28, and Porsche GT3.
As Beautiful As Ever
Whether you are someone who enjoys the more boxy-style of Shelby’s in the past, or the sportier models that they’ve been for more than a decade, you’ll be able to appreciate the modern fusion that comes with the 2015 Shelby GT350. This car is incredibly sleek, and Ford has redesigned parts all over the vehicle.
The front of the 2015 Shelby GT350 looks like your standard Ford. It offers a beautiful low profile, smooth lights, and a body that lets others know that you command respect on the road. But as you start to make your way towards the back, you’ll see that Ford rethought their entire design plan. There is now a more downward swooping rear part of the car, which adds for smoother driving and better gas mileage thanks to aerodynamics. And in the back of the vehicle is two sets of twin exhaust pipes, which is the perfect compliment to the new design of the Shelby trunk.
Different models of the Ford Shelby have been popular through the last 50 years. As culture and preferences in vehicles have changed, so has this iconic ride. But as you can see in the 2015 Shelby GT 350, Ford truly was looking to reinvent the way that drivers looked at this particular model. And since the Shelby GT500 wasn’t in production in 2015, designers and engineers had more time to perfect the 350. Now the Ford Shelby GT350 ranks among some of the top performance cars in the entire world, and it’s something that you certainly won’t miss if you see it on the road.
