Here is a perfect Friday happy-hour: a HOT video of the new GT350 and GT350R rocking out on track. The flat-plane crank of two GT350R’s around the same corner is nothing short of racing nirvana.
Grattan Raceway in Michigan hosted the GT350R launch drive, while the GT350 cranked at the corkscrew of Laguna Seca.
Fast way to tell them apart? The GT350R wears the red Shelby badges versus a polished alloy finish for the GT350 Shelby emblems.
A good thing to note at this point is that none of these cars is even a Shelby Cobra…. so there is still even more Mustang power to look forward to.

Any 2017 or 2018 Cobra will have have its work cut out to top these GT350s, though. Prodcution just started, so first buyers should meet their new supercars within six weeks!
