The 2013 Shelby GT350 Mustang

Limited edition 2013 Shelby GT350 Mustang gets new look and new colors

Even though automotive legend Carroll Shelby passed away in May, the company that features his name has continued on with business as usual and yesterday Shelby American announced the changes for the limited edition 2013 Shelby GT350 Mustang – including a handful of new features and a spread of new options.

The 2013 Shelby GT350 Mustang is similar in many ways to the 2012 model year package, being based on the Ford Mustang GT in either coupe or convertible form with either an automatic or manual transmission. The 2013 GT350 is powered by the same 5.0L V8 as the Mustang GT but the power output has been bumped up in the standard, naturally aspirated form from 420 to 430 horsepower. However, those who want a whole lot more punch out of their 2013 Shelby GT350 can opt for either one of the Ford Racing/Whipple supercharger packages that increase the power output to 525 or 624 horsepower, depending on the exact package chosen.

"The Shelby GT350 is one of the world's most celebrated and iconic modern muscle cars," said John Luft, president of Shelby American. "For the third model year of the contemporary Shelby GT350, we've further refined the car with options and equipment requested by enthusiasts. The Shelby American team is following Carroll Shelby's playbook to continue building high performance cars and parts designed to keep our customers at the front of the fast lane."
