2016 shelby gt350r 7.32.19 nurburgring lap



from the article:
Horsepower Kings claims the 2016 Shelby GT350R has recorded a staggering 7:32.19 lap time around the Nurburgring. If confirmed (and take this with a grain of salt), it will make the Shelby GT350R more than five seconds faster over the Camaro Z/28's 7:37.40 lap time.

As much as i want to believe this. The site who is saying this is the same site that told us that Ford was discontinuing the V8 all together in 2018. And the next day Ford came out and said that was a lie. So i'm hesitant to trust this site. But i really do want to believe that it got that time, would be amazing. Also means it beat out the Porsche 911 GT3, which is even more impressive if true.

So far the only info about this i've seen over the internet is just coming from that site, so i don't think it is true. If it was then it would be viral.

Someone must have done this time on Forza or GT5.

If this were true, the time would have been released last week at the Detroit Auto show when Ford made all the announcements on the new performance cars.

Also, I wonder what this thing will do when it's raining for a 1/4 of the track as those were the conditions that the Z/28 set it's time in.

GM claims that they had ran the car previously and ran over six seconds faster than they did on their official lap. That puts the Z/28 at 7:31.xx. Which, would indicate that the GT350R is slower than the Z/28 in ideal conditions. If you watch the Z/28 official video, it's clear that the six seconds they lost in the rain isn't something they made up.

Yea this is the same site that has been wrong about stuff before. And there are no pictures, or videos of the car on the track. My guess is this is just something they put out for more readers. I highly doubt its true, so we still have no idea what the car will do at the ring.

Yup. Ford came out and said that the times floating around are a lie. I knew it.

Ford has never broadcasted any of their 'Ring times for any vehicle. Try and find some. The only special thing Ford really ever broadcasted about any Mustang was the 13 GT500 being able to hit 200mph. Thats it. So i don't really think they plan on it, can't really blame them, what difference does it make?

The 'Ring is a great track, but the only way to get accurate results for comparing cars is to have 1 driver drive every single car on the same day and give the results. The real test is to see 2 of them battling it out on a track.

I'm ready to see these cars battle it out on Laguna Seca, Road Atlanta, Willow Springs, Gingerman .... and of course the Ring.

I also would like to see a comparison of how much faster these track specials are compared to the standard Performance Pack / 1LE.

I wish this were true but doubtful as the source has had bad information about Ford in the past. I really would like a Mustang that can put the Camaro crowd in its place but the current GM designs are stout no doubt.

That's it, I had to ignore Ish416, I'm sick of reading his garbage. Always arguing against Fords and Mustangs on a Mustang site. I've read too many of his posts to read one more line of motor trends copy/paste bull****. If you dislike mustangs, sell yours and buy bike or something. I'm sure you could go troll a Huffy forum.

Anyway. I hope this is true, I hope it's faster. I don't even like laptimes but I can't wait to hear all the Chevy fanboys cry about this one.

Goose, I'm just stating facts. Apologies if my realistic views offend your blind faith in Ford.

Ford has a track record of under-performing and of failed design goals with the Mustang.

Case in point, the 13/14 GT500 would do 200 mph. I don't think anyone has accomplished this besides Ford. It gets damn close but 195 isn't 200.

Same goes with the 2015 Mustang GT performance pack being able to outperform the previous GT and Boss (which was also under-performing for it's intended purpose), that didn't happen either and it failed to beat the 1LE Camaro that has been out and unchanged for several years.

Ford has never outright said that the GT350 will beat the Z/28. They just claim it will be the best performing track Mustang ever, which it will be. If Ford knew the 350R was faster than the Z/28, it would have been mentioned at the Detroit auto show and would have been the icing on the cake with Ford dominating the auto show.

The GM guys have long waited for Ford to get their **** together. Competition is good for all.

I'm not dissing on your views or opinions at all. I have plenty of GM guys that are some of my closest friends, but why are you on a mustang forum if you don't like mustangs? Haha

2016 shelby gt350r 7.32.19 nurburgring lap

Remember. Ford never releases the times, they never have. So we won't know what it runs at the ring until others get out there and drive it.

I'm just waiting for the Stig to get ahold of it and drive both cars and see which comes out faster. That's really the best way to see what it runs.

Either way I'd probably pick the GT350 over Z28 anyway even if it's slower.

I just can't get over the fact the Z28 is 75 grand. It better damn well outperform! GM whoring the name and plastering colorful stickers on slow a s s emissions choked Camaros has forever tarnished the name. I would never pay 75 grand for a Camaro that's crazy. I guarantee you if I invested 40k in upgrades to a Mustang it would compete. Mustang is the most bang for your buck.

Yeah grew up in the days of used Z28's for 2500.00 all over car lots and Mustang GT's too. Many of my friends drove these as their first vehicle.

It's sad to know that a car a lot of teenage drivers had either used or new back in the day are now 75K. No working class parent can afford that for a first car or teenage fresh out of high school.

The Horsepower Kings website has claimed that the new Z06 has lapped the 'ring in 6:59.13. The chief Corvette engineer claims that it's total BS and they haven't actually made a run for the 'ring lap time but they think it should run around a 7:07.

As mentioned, the GT350R lap time is 100% BS, along with nearly everything released from that website over the last month.

Corvette Chief Engineer Says Claimed 6:59 Z06 'Ring Time Is "Fabricated"

American Hustle| 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 vs 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat vs 2015 Ford Mustang GT

Here is a fun little comparison!.. The Z28 was only 3 sec faster than the GT!.. Would have expected more from a near $80,000 track purpose Comarro!..

I actually used to be a GM guy I just don't have any luck with them. The last few I owned the reliability was horrible. It seemed to be always something breaking. I'm not sure if they've fixed this but I know my most recent and my LAST 09 Silverado was crap. It was just ridiculous how unreliable that particular truck was. I liked it and like the new Camaros too. I almost bought one but my past recent experiences with GM are not good I have no confidence in them. The older ones I have had luck with I would say pre 2000. We currently own 4 Fords and they have been GREAT.

I've never bought anything new that wasn't a Ford. I've had great luck with them all. F-150, Expedition, Probe, Mustang, Explorer.
My Dad had a 2005 CTS with 24,000 miles blow a tranny. He bought it new and babied it. He had a 97 STS before that spin a bearing and you can't work on the crank because it was Northstar. Basically a throw away engine.
I've never been stranded by any of my Fords.
