2015 Shelby GT350R and GT350 Extremely Limited

By -


We’re rapidly approaching the end of the 2015 model year, but there are still two special Mustangs that haven’t hit dealerships yet. They are the 2015 Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT350R. To honor Carroll Shelby’s memory, Ford is only going to offer a few of those cars before changing over to the 2016 model year. How many? One hundred GT350s and just 37 GT350Rs.

Back in the day when cars were cars and men were men, Carroll Shelby created a few FIA-homogolated Mustangs called the Shelby GT350 competition. He wanted to go racing and that’s the only way to do it. The Shelby GT350 competition even made an appearance in the 1967 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Apparently there is quite some debate on how many of those cars were actually made. Carroll Shelby himself said that there were 35 cars and two prototypes. However, many enthusiasts claim that records only indicated 34 cars being made. Ford is siding with Mr. Shelby on this one by making 37.

As for the regular GT350, there will be 100 of those built. Half of them will have the Technology Package, and the other half will have the Track Package.

Each of them will have a unique 2015 VIN, which Ford claims is the “envy of Shelby enthusiasts everywhere.”

Pricing is still to be determined, but with such a limited production run expect some pretty serious dealership markups.
