Ford introduced the new Shelby GT350R this morning at the Detroit Auto Show. The exciting main features include carbon-fiber wheels as standard equipment and a host of "race-ready" technology. Ford has billed the GT350R as "the most track-capable production Mustang ever built."

The GT350R is powered by Ford's first ever flat-plane-crank V-8. It creates more than 500 HP and more than 400 lb-ft of torque.

Ford also put a lot of effort into weight shaving for the GT350R. To that end items like air conditioning, stereo system, rear seats, and trunk floorboard and carpet have been removed. The GT350R, according to Ford, is more than 130 lbs lighter than the Shelby GT350 Track Pack model.

We still don't know what the official power numbers or price is for the GT350, but Road & Track spoke to a "trusted source" that gives us an idea of what those numbers could end up being.

The GT350 should carry a base price of around $50,000, and the GT350R should have an opening sticker of around $70,000. Notice that the GT350R's price is undercutting the Camaro Z/28's starting price of $75,000.

As for the engine, rumor has it it will be in the 520-540 hp range.

Shelby GT350 should start around $50K - Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT350R Pricing
