2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R: Track Ready, Street Capable
Last spring, I took a spin behind the wheel of the new 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 — one of no fewer than nine performance variants of Ford’s sports car that the company now plans to offer for 2020. And I did enjoy my experience — pondering whether the GT350 is the best Mustang ever made. Its mix of stellar track performance and decent daily livability was a winning combination, but if you intend to use your GT350 on the track more than you plan on using it to commute, Ford has something new for 2020 that you might be interested in: the 2020 Shelby GT350R. Not that the basic GT350 is any slouch on a road course, but the improvements Ford made for 2020 (based on lessons learned from development of the still-to-come Shelby GT500) make the R version even more ready for the track.
