Ford Mustang Shelby GTE is the new bet of the us firm aimed primarily at its fans. By all it is known that the Shelby GT350 and GT350R have a price quite prohibitive and is within reach of few. But that will change thanks to this GTE is located as access model to the range. And in addition we will have a sporty higher than the Mustang GT ‘normal’ thanks to a few tweaks.
Aesthetically it will be easy to recognize thanks to the stripes of Shelby. Also some elements like the hood vented, splitter in carbon fiber, rear spoiler, or the 19-inch alloy wheels signed by Ford Performance. Of course there will be a multitude of logos with the initials GTE and the cobra of Shelby. This model can be chosen both with the bodywork coupe and the convertible.
If we look under the hood we find the powerful V8 of 5.0 liters that we have already seen in the Mustang GT. Although this version has been powered up 462 HP and 574 Nm of torque, a significant improvement considering that series had 441 HP. Optionally you can order a supercharger that could boost power up to 670-750 CV. Also it was bid with the engine 2.3 EcoBoost four-cylinder that will have 314 HP to deliver 340 HP.
The Ford Mustang Shelby GTE also benefits from a exhaust system Tassel or the Ford Performance Handling Package, which includes a series of add-ons to improve their skills. Even if it is the Shelby more accessible, it will not be cheap. In the united States the package that GTE will have a starting price of 17.999 $ (a 16.100 euros at the exchange). To this must be added to the price of the Ford Mustang GT on which it is installed.
