2011 Shelby GT350 Gets 600+ HP Option

Shelby American has just released the final specs for the revived GT350, with official figures of the supercharged and normally aspirated post title packages, as well as a new higher horsepower option for the 5.0-liter powered car.

The new 600+ horsepower variant therefore makes the 2011 Shelby GT350 one of the most powerful limited production cars in the world.

“Our goal was to build the ultimate small block muscle car,” said John Luft, president of Shelby American. “The results show that the Shelby GT350 takes American performance to an entirely new level. In recent tests, the standard supercharged car hit 60 miles per hour in just 3.7 seconds and ran the quarter in 12 seconds flat at 121.4 mph, all while generating 1.05g of lateral acceleration and stopping from 60 mph in only 107 feet. We believe the ‘R’ tuned GT350 will be even faster.”

The normally aspirated GT350 is available in standard Ford Mustang GT trim for SCCA racing or 430 in the optional tune. The standard supercharged version is rated at 525 horsepower while the “R” tune option delivers 624 horsepower. All versions include Shelby performance suspension, brake, tire/wheel, and interior and exterior styling enhancements.

In addition to the optional “R” tune for the supercharger, Shelby American will offer a solid blue painted hood stripes as well as finished rear bumper stripes. A Watts link rear suspension, upgraded stereo, track-oriented brakes and other options are also available on the Shelby.

Optional equipment includes:
  • Polished supercharger
  • Shelby/Baer 6 piston rear brake upgrade
  • Watts link rear suspension
  • Goodyear street race tire package
  • Painted over the top and side stripe kit
  • Shelby/Kicker premium sound system
  • Leather seating surfaces with contrasting stitching and red/white/blue insert on front seats
  • Tone on tone embroidered GT350 on seat backs
  • Console cover and shift boot
