Being one of the must-have cars of its era, Jay Leno couldn’t resist buying an example of Ford’s mighty Shelby Mustang GT350R.
His car is a MY2015 which translates into serious collector’s value as Ford only made 37 of these in this year, but this is an amazing muscle car no matter the year of production.
Powered by an exclusive, naturally aspirated flat-plane crank 5.2-litre V8 which produces 526hp and revs all the way up to 8250rpm, the Shelby Mustang GT350R is perhaps one of Ford’s golden moments.
Jay Leno walks us through the Shelby Mustang GT350R, joined by Jamal Hameedi, one of the company’s engineers responsible for the pinnacle of the Mustang line-up. Hameedi analyzes all the changes they did to make the GT350R a pure sports car with a manual gearbox and a screaming V8 up front.
