Shelby American has released the official specs of the 2013 version of the GT350 Mustang.
The 2013 GT350 Mustang has just been given its official release by Shelby American and from the looks of things, it's different in a good way. 'A good way' in the sense that a slew of new colors along with some serious power combine to give the GT350 a distinctive edge versus its predecessors. In terms of styling, the 2013 GT350 features a wide range of color options, such as "Gotta Have It" Green, Candy Red Tint Coat Metallic, Ingot Silver Metallic and more.
The wheels can be finished in either Satin Black or Bright Silver metallic. An optional glass roof, Recaro Racing seats and a modified custom rear valence are also offered. Available in a limited run of only 350 units, the Shelby GT350 is based on the Ford Mustang GT and boasts the same performance specs as the previous model year. The Mustang's base 430hp 5.0-liter V8 engine can be had with an optional cold air package boasting output up to about 450hp. With the addition of a supercharger system, the V8 cranks out either 525hp or 624hp.
A one-piece drive shaft, bigger brakes and a cooling system are also optional for the 2013 GT350. "The Shelby GT350 is one of the world's most celebrated and iconic modern muscle cars. For the third model year of the contemporary Shelby GT350, we've further refined the car with options and equipment requested by enthusiasts. The Shelby American team is following Carroll Shelby's playbook to continue building high performance cars and parts designed to keep our customers at the front of the fast lane," said John Luft, president of Shelby American.
The 2013 Shelby GT350 post-title package begins pricing at $26,995 for the normally aspirated version and $33,995 with the addition of a supercharger. Prices do not include the cost of the base car.
