Ford will ‘start’ the new Shelby GT350 at $52,995, according to Ford sources at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Official pricing is yet to be announced, but we have also learned that you can expect to fork out another $2,995 for the ‘Tech’ package.
Furthermore, we were also told that it is likely we will see a ‘track’ package for this base GT350, to fill the gap between the upcoming GT350R – yes, a GT350R, which will be a more thoroughbred track star with better brakes, stickier tires and aerodynamic ‘tweaks’. This does not come as a huge surprise, considering it is no secret Ford has been testing multiple high performance Mustangs at the Nurburgring.
We expect to see the new GT350R in January at the Detroit Auto Show, just weeks away. Stay tuned.
Ford will price 2016 GT350 at $52,995, GT350R Model on way - HorsepowerKings.com
this one too..
So, according to these, there will be three models of the GT350, a base model, a track package one and finally the GT350R.
I guess I am not sure where this track pack GT350 fits in..
Also, $53,000 is a bit close to a C7 Vette in price, just $1,000 more for the Vette.
Then the GT350R will likely be priced closely to the Z/28 in the $70,000 - $75,000 range. However, the current Z/28 will be long gone with the next gen possibly being available but also the C7 Z06 starts at $78,XXX and will in all likelihood destroy the GT350R in any measurable performance category.
Also, Ford is supposedly bringing back the Ford GT supercar for 2016, also supposedly building a racecar to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the GT40.
