Being true Mustang enthusiasts here at Late Model Restoration, we were more than ready to tear into our 2015 Mustang project cars. Since we had already finished up ourSupercharged 2015 Mustang, we decided to take a different route on our triple yellow S550. Thanks to Hellion Power Systems, we are turning this mild bolt on 5.0 to a high horsepower twin turbo 2015 Mustang GT! This first round of mods to our Triple Yellow Project Car included a JLT cold air intake kit, a Bassani mid muffler catback exhaust kit, Eibach pro kit lowering springs, DF5 5 spoke wheels, a Roush hood scoop, and redline tuning hood struts. All of these parts were great first mods to get our S550 grabbing attention, but we wanted more. With the addition of the Hellion 2015 Mustang turbo kit, we ditched the cold air and swapped out the exhaust for a Bassani 3" catback for better exhaust flow.

2016 FORD GT - Ecoboost V6​

Ford today unveiled the new Shelby® GT350R Mustang, the most track-ready road-going production Mustang ever built.

In 1965, Ford and Carroll Shelby developed a road-racing version of the popular Ford Mustang – the Shelby GT350 Competition model. Lighter, more powerful and with a highly developed suspension, it is one of the most iconic racing Mustangs ever produced.

Arriving later this year, the new Shelby GT350R has been designed and engineered in the same spirit, delivering never-before-seen track capability from a Mustang – thanks to innovations in aerodynamics, chassis engineering and light-weighting.

“The Shelby GT350R Mustang is a no-compromise car in the pursuit of maximum track capability,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. “It is a thoroughbred street car making use of technology and ingenuity to deliver performance few enthusiasts have ever experienced.”

The car features the first-ever production V8 from Ford with a flat-plane crankshaft – the most powerful naturally aspirated engine Ford has ever produced – plus a specially tuned suspension. It is fitted with revised spring rates and antiroll bars, lower ride height, unique track-tuned alignment settings, revised bushings and jounce bumpers, cross-axis ball joints in the front suspension, and revised calibration controlling the MagneRide dampers.

“The Shelby GT350R Mustang is a car with the nimbleness and power delivery you want on a road course,” said Nair. “This isn’t just about horsepower. The Shelby GT350R is an all-around balanced athlete – one that is extraordinarily precise and agile.”

Track technology for the street
Lightweight carbon fiber wheels are standard on Shelby GT350R, making Ford the first major automaker to introduce this innovative wheel technology as standard equipment.
