In Case You Forgot, Here’s What The Shelby GT350’s Voodoo V8 Sounds Like: Video

Just in case you forgot – or can’t get enough of – the sound of the new Shelby GT350 Mustang’s awesome flat-plane crank Voodoo V8, YouTuber Automann-TV is here to remind us. The video above depicts a cold start of the pony car’s lauded 5.2-liter engine, with all the sound and fury that entails.

The 2015-’16 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang ships with a multi-modal exhaust system, incorporating internal valves that can open or close at the flip of a switch, allowing the driver to select a suitable noise level (ranging from “loud” to “insanely loud”). In this video, Automann-TV exposes us to both the “Normal” mode, and the “Sport” mode, each of which is music to any gearhead’s ears.

Of course, much of the sound character of the new Shelby GT350 Mustang is derived from the flat-plane crankshaft in the 5.2L Voodoo V8. An even firing-order means that rather than the usual, loping “burble” we’ve come to expect from big, American V8s, the exhaust note is more of a constant “yawp.”

Be sure to get a refresher on what 526 American horsepower sounds like from the new Shelby GT350 Mustang in the video above.
