Ford is once again pushing the limits of street-legal performance with the all-new 2016 Shelby GT350R, making its debut in the automaker’s hometown at the North American International Auto Show. It is one of 12 new Ford Performance vehicles coming by 2020.
The latest beast in the legendary Ford-Shelby stable is powered by a new 5.2-liter dual-overhead-cam V-8 engine, the first of its kind to be put in production from Ford with a flat-plane crankshaft. The naturally aspirate engine generates 500 hp and more than 400 lb.-ft. of torque.
