Ford Performance has introduced a new Mustang-based race car named Shelby FP350S. If you want something a bit more hardcore, you’ll have to ditch the idea of it being legal on the road. The turn-key racer is eligible for the TA3 and TA4 categories of the Trans Am series, and the T1 and T2 categories of SCCA and NASA club racing.
Developed exclusively for track use, the Mustang-based Shelby FP350S is powered by a naturally-aspirated 5.2-liter V8 engine, though it’s not the flat-plane unit found under the hood of the street-legal Shelby GT350. Performance data hasn’t been released yet, but we know the eight-cylinder is fitted with a race exhaust and an oil cooler.
