2016 Shelby GT350 Planned With High-Revving V8

Recent rumors had Ford dropping the Shelby GT500 for the next-generation Mustang, and now it appears that the American automaker will introduce a Shelby GT350 one year after the new Mustang debuts in 2015.

That means for the time being, the Cobra moniker wonít be revived, but the Shelby GT350 will be an official Ford factory model. Unfortunately, details are light on the next-generation Mustang and the Shelby GT350 variant, but it will be naturally aspirated powered by a V8. The powerplant is expected to be high-revving and derived from the GTís 5.0-liter Coyote engine, but will feature a higher displacement and be significantly more powerful. It wonít be as powerful as this generationís GT500 with 662 hp, but itíll see impressive gains over the expected 450 hp from the GT. Ford is also expected to use plenty of carbon fiber on the GT350 to help free up some weight.

As for other surprises Ford has in the works, a Mach 1 model is planned for introduction in 2017. Like in the past, expect the Mach 1 model to be a collectible, special-edition car.

high revving V8 is the way to go cause with V8's if you really want to make really good use of them you not only need good low end torque but great top end. Redline at 8k would be sweet

Does anyone know what the chassis is like? almost seems as if it's loosely based off of the current chassis but cant be 100% about that.
