Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Heritage Edition

For the model year 2020 of the Mustang Shelby GT350 as well as the Mustang Shelby GT350R Ford developed an exclusive Heritage Edition to remind of the fact that the first Shelby offshoots for the racetrack appeared 55 years ago. At that time, British-born racing driver Ken Miles set the fastest times and achieved racing successes with the first Shelby Mustang, for example by winning at the Green Valley Raceway in Texas on 14 February 1965, and the following year he was involved in the development of the Ford GT40, which is currently being shown on the cinema screen. From the outside, the new special edition model has a paintwork in ‘Wimbledon White’ with racing stripes in ‘Guardsman Blue’ over the full length and above the side skirts. These are the racing colors that have been used by the United States of America for a long time in motorsport. The front and rear logos and a unique interior badge also feature the color ‘Guardsman Blue’. The GT350R also has red stitching to match the black seats.

The Heritage Edition package costs $ 1,965 and comes to market exactly one year after a major upgrade of the Mustang Shelby GT350. This included modified front axle geometry for better steering response, new ABS tuning and a modified MagneRide shock absorber setup. The GT350R also features a redesigned high-trail steering knuckle leveraged, a new steering rack and a recalibrated electric power steering control. For the Mustang Shelby GT350, Ford is asking for at least $ 60,440 and for the GT350R $ 73,435 (plus taxes and fees each).
