Although there’s more than a little something to be said to the contribution of the new Shelby GT350’s high-revving 5.2-liter , 526-hp V8 (the most powerful naturally aspirated Ford production engine ever), a Tremec six-speed manual transmission and specially developed (as in tread pattern and compound) Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires vis-à-vis the track performance of the 2019 model.

Yet a word on behalf of the aerodynamic design is in order, as the refinement of the car took place, in part in the wind tunnel.

There is a new rear spoiler that will be available with an optional Gurney flap after launch:

There is an optimized grille closeout:

Airflow from under the front of the car along the body sides is managed:

The 2019 Mustang Shelby GT350 will be built at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Flat Rock, Michigan, for early 2019 deliveries.
