The high-performance Ford Mustang special editions are numerous; at least, on the other side of the pond. One of the most spectacular is the Mustang Shelby GT350 which, as you have last spring, recently received a renewal to put it to the day with new colors and the introduction of a package called “Track Package” completely from series to improve its dynamics.
So far, the only Shelby GT350 has offered with engine with 5,200 V8 engine cc with atmospheric admission that achieves a specific output exceeding the 100 HP per liter, something not seen every day in a model without supercharging. In total, 526 cv are sent to the rear axle, a real lot. This version always it has marketed exclusively with manual gearbox, although it seems that this figure will soon change.
Even with the six-speed manual gearbox, the Shelby GT350 is a very fast car capable of troubles to a handful of Supercars even when cornering. Its implementation is very different from the of a Ford Mustang conventional, looking for maximum effectiveness in circuit. According to the medium Jalopnik, the powerful 5.2 eight-cylinder in V can be associated with a dual-clutch transmission starting from 2018, although it is unknown if it will feature six relations or whether he bet on seven-speed as the Ford GT does it.
If so, mark not introduce a dual-clutch with a focused configuration change to the comfort and smoothness of operation of the set, rather the opposite. As this is a high-sporty car, it would be logical to management of change with several driving modes, but more focused on the quick jump between marches and to allow the motor to rotate in the “good zone” tachometer. Thus, in theory should be more quickly and effectively on circuit.
In any case, is more than likely that the Shelby GT350 also keep the manual gearbox, featuring double clutch optional.
