  3. 3. The Classic Model ● First released in 1965 as the smallest and lightest of the Mustang GT350 series, the Shelby GT350 was built specifically as a street-legal track car, as evidenced by its 4.7-liter, 306-horsepower engine. ● Due to the high-rise intake manifold, Ford marketing materials referred to the engine as the Cobra hi-riser, which led Mustang enthusiasts to dub cars from the Shelby series “Cobras.” ● In 1966, the GT350 received upgrades, such as a dual exhaust and rear quarter-panel windows, as well as a series of cosmetic changes.
  4. 4. The New Version ● The Shelby GT350 went largely untouched until 2014, when Ford debuted a new performance version of its classic model. ● Known as the 2016 Shelby GT350, the revamped model includes a 5.2-liter V-8 engine with more than 500 horsepower. ● In addition to paying tribute to its predecessor, the 2016 GT350 includes state-of-the-art features such as five driving modes and MagneRide dampers for improved suspension performance.
