Although the Shelby GT500 Mustang offered a convertible version, it appears that the 2016 Shelby GT350 Mustang will be offered only as a coupe. According to Road&Track, an open-top version of the new Shelby GT350 was never planned as the vehicle was developed as a high-performance model that can be driven to the maximum on a racetrack.

As you may know already, if the vehicle will loose its roof, the stiffness of the body will be reduced, which means not so impressive performances. Still, we have som good news as a hotter GT350R, with upgraded brakes, tweaked aerodynamic kit, high-performance tires and more, is expected to arrive at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, in January.

Building the “ultimate small block muscle car" is what Shelby had in mind when it decided to create a new 624hp "R" tune upgrade to the 525hp 2011 Shelby GT350, according to John Luft, president of Shelby American.

Shelby, the well-known American tuner specialized in Mustangs, unveiled today a supercharged concept version of the Mustang-based 2011 Shelby GT350 to the surprise of thousands gathered at the Barrett-Jackson Auction Opening Night Gala.

The vehicle, which celebrates the 45th anniversary of the first GT350 and first Shelby big block Cobra, uses the new 5.0-liter V8 engine found on the brand new 2011 Ford Mustang 5.0 GT. The new engine delivers an impressive 500 hp, but what's power without handling right?

In order to achieve this goal too, Baer Brakes helped engineer the fantastic brakes (6 piston kit in the front, as well as 14" ERADISPEED rotors in the rear with cooling ducts for all four corners) while the 19" modern Cragar wheels and super sticky Goodyear tires also improve the handling.

Shelby American has announced the specs for the new model, the 2011 Shelby GT350. In a press release, Carroll Shelby said that the Mustang-based model will be sold as a base level, naturally-aspirated street car capable of SCCA competition.

For $7,000 more, the car can be bought with a supercharger. Shelby said that when the GT350 was brought back, there were calls for it to be capable of racing like the Shelby GT.

He claims that customers asked for a car that would be permitted to run in SCCA-sanctioned races, which typically do not allow vehicles with an aftermarket supercharger.
