Ford Performance Offering Shelby GT350R Customers New Back Seat Package

Even though most of the fun you’ll have in a GT350R is done either behind the wheel or in the passenger seat, Ford still thinks you should be able to have more functionality with this type of car.

This marks the debut of the new Ford-designed and engineered back seat kit which basically turns the GT350R Mustang into a genuine four-seater. If that sounds a little counter intuitive, it’s probably because this is Ford’s most track-capable Mustang in history and practicality wasn’t something that was advertised from the get-go.

The new kit makes this Shelby GT350R the most track-ready, road-going four-seat Mustang ever and while that is quite a mouthful, it’s also something that plenty of customers might want to consider.

The kit itself features high-quality Alcantara material and high-contrast red accent stitching (same as on the front seats), as well as original GT350 occupant restraint systems – you know, since safety is always a top priority.

Available through Ford Performance Parts, the kit will set you back $999 and should be installed only through a Ford authorized dealer or service center. Otherwise, you risk compromising the safety of your rear seat passengers.

“We always listen to customer feedback,” said Dave Pericak, global director at Ford Performance. “So when many requested a back seat for their GT350R, we acted quickly to make it available.”

The fact that lots of customers wanted to be able to fit more people in their track-oriented Mustang just goes to show that no matter how hardcore the car is, not compromising practicality is extremely important.
