While Europe has received the sixth-generation Ford Mustang, the American automaker opted not to offer the high-performance Shelby GT350 and GT350R variants across the other side of the Atlantic.
Thankfully, Germany tuning and importing company GeigerCars has come to the rescue and announced that it will be importing the GT350 to Europe from 82,900 euros.
While that price tag is significantly more than the $47,795 starting price of the GT350 in the U.S., it’s only about 10,000 euro more than a BMW M4 and don’t forget, its 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated flat-plane crank V8 engine, both has much more power and character than the M4’s twin-turbo six-cylinder.
It isn’t yet known if GeigerCars will have to perform any modifications to make the GT350 compliant in Europe or if the range-topping GT350R will also be offered. Whatever the case, muscle car enthusiasts across the pond (we’re looking at your Richard Hammond), should be excited to get their hands on the GT350.
Beyond its engine delivering 526 hp at 7,500 rpm and 420 lb-ft at 4,750 rpm all while revving to 8,250 rpm, the Shelby GT350 utilises a six-speed Tremec manual transmission sending power to the rear wheels via a Torsen limited-slip differential.
