Just in time for the holiday season, Ford Performance recently revealed an all-new, non-street legal Shelby FP350S race car that's ready for the track. It made its debut at the 2016 Performance Racing Industry show in Indianapolis, but will be available to order at Ford dealerships nationwide in the near future.
The Shelby FP350S is the latest present from Ford Performance to racing enthusiasts everywhere. It follows a lineage of turn-key race cars, including the FR500C, BOSS 302S and 302R, and the Ford Shelby GT350R-C and GT4. The latter two cars were unveiled at this year's SEMA. Check out another car from the Shelby family in the video below:
Designed for road racing sprint events in classes such as Trans Am (TA3 and TA4), NASA and SCCA club racing (T1 and T2), the Shelby FP350S is geared to fly around the track with style. According to Dave Pericak in a statement, the global director for Ford Performance, “Our goal has always been to provide those who want to race with equipment that enables them to compete and win. Shelby FP350S is our latest example.”
Although the new Shelby's highlights could take up the chapter in a book, a few notable standouts are its 5.2-liter, four-valve-per-cylinder V8 engine (prepared by Ford Performance Parts), its Tremec 3160 manual transmission with integral oil pump and 3.73 rear final drive ratio, its Ford Performance splitter and carbon fiber-construction adjustable rear wing, and modified unibody chassis with seam welding.
