Listen to the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R Revved in Anger

The Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R sounds absolutely evil

-First things first: You know the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 sounds raucous. That flat-plane-crank 5.2-liter V-8 cranking out 526 naturally-aspirated horsepower makes a noise you probably never expected to hear coming from the tail end of a pony car.

You also know that, as intensely focused as the GT350 is, the track-oriented GT350R takes things even further, with sharper suspension and a lighter curb weight thanks to a stripped-down interior and a lack of luxury amenities.

Now, thanks to a brief video posted to Facebook by The Smoking Tire, we know how the superhot GT350R will sound.

It’ll be an ear-burner.

That’s Ford’s chief of performance vehicles, Jamal Hameedi, playing the loud pedal in this assumedly preproduction GT350R. You can tell the R apart from the “regular” GT350 by its big rear wing—and somehow, it sounds even louder than the last time we heard it just a few weeks ago.



Also, listen to how fast that engine revs up. No heavy flywheels or annoying rev-hang here.

We can’t wait to see what the GT350R does in real life.
