Ford Revs Mustang GT350R in London, British Girls Giggle

Remember the Mustang Shelby GT350R that ex-Stig Ben Collins manhandled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed? Since the track-savvy muscle car was in the UK, Ford couldn’t miss the opportunity to unleash the machine in London.

The British capital is also one of the top car places in the world, up there with Monaco and Dubai, so the high-octane population is an important part of the city’s life.

What the Blue Oval did was to follow what has become a classic supercar spotting recipe - take the car in a coveted area of London and let its appearance work its magic on passers-by. In other words, consider this some sort of an impromptu commercial.

Nonetheless, they also revved the Voodoo V8, introducing unsuspecting Londoners to the music of the flat-plane orchestra. Ford doesn’t mention this, but we have a feeling the idea came from the Supercars of London, a crew of aficionados who are riding the Youtube wave these days. For one thing, we can see their main man in the driver’s seat.

Girls giggled, guys smiled, couples were scared and some people were amused - one thing is for sure - the track special ‘Stang drew plenty of attention in a city that’s used to seeing Paganis on a regular basis.

But will the GT350/R come to Europe?

For the moment, Ford says the pair of Shelbys is “only planned to be sold in North America”. But it’s obvious they’re testing the waters. And since the Focus RS has now reached American shores and the Mustang can be found in European dealers, the future looks bright badass.
