When Ford first revealed the Shelby® GT350 Mustang to the world from the LA Auto Show, the collective industry took a breath, and realized that history was being made before their very eyes. A new Shelby® Mustang is no normal addition to the Ford lineup, but a special release for the true enthusiasts. Though it has been some time since we first saw the model unveiled, Ford has finally announced the performance figures of the new Shelby® GT350 Mustang.

Featuring an all-new Ford 5.2-liter flat-plane crankshaft V8 capable of producing 526-horsepower and 429 lb.-ft. of torque, the Shelby® GT350 and GT350R are sure to be two of the most impressive new models of the year. As the highest-revving production V8 in Ford history, you can be sure the exhaust notes will be music to your ears.

Take a look at the video below to see both of these exciting models hit the track and see what's in store for drivers fortunate enough to sit behind the wheel.
