Leaked 2015 Shelby GT350 Window Sticker Reveals A Few More Details

2015 Window StickerFord has been slow to leak out details on the 2015 Shelby GT350, although we’re starting to get a fuller picture of this road-legal, race-ready version of the S550 Mustang. The naturally-aspirated 5.2 liter V8 is fitted with an exotic flat-plane crankshaft and is rated at 526 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. Massive Brembo brakes measuring in at 15.5 inches at the front and 14.8 inches in the back, and the first-ever mass-production carbon fiber wheels will shed a lot of rotating mass, something crucial to cornering acceleration.

But we’re still missing a lot of the nitty-gritty details that only comes from actually being able to order a GT350 for one’s self. Over at the Mustang6g.com forums, poster shelby_r shared a copy of the window sticker from his freshly-ordered Shelby GT350. Opting for the Deep Impact Blue Metallic exterior and ebony cloth interior, there’s only one option ticked off; the $6,500 track package. But this window sticker reveals so much more than just one man’s preferences.

If the leaked ordering guides for the Shelby GT350 are true, the Track Package adds track-specific features (as you may have imagined) so you can really flog your GT350. The Track Package adds the MagnaRide suspension, heavy-duty front springs, engine oil, transmission, and differential coolers, as well as a lightweight metal strut tower brace and selectable driving modes. The addition of the Track Package brings the base MSRP up from $47,795 to $56,970 after destination, gas guzzler tax, and the $450 black racing stripe package.

Thanks to the window sticker, we also get our first look at the GT350’s fuel economy ratings, which sit at 14 in the city and 21 on the highway for a combined rating of 16 MPG. That’s 3 MPG worse than even a fully-loaded Ford F-150 with the 5.0 V8, but nobody is buying a Shelby to save the environment. The day when the first GT350s are let loose draws ever nearer, and they’ll be burning every drop of high-octane fuel they’re fed.
