2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R With 18 Miles Up For Auction

With the beloved S550-gen Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 bowing out of the lineup a couple of years ago, we’ve seen more than a few low-mile examples pop up for sale and go for good money. That includes this 2019 model with just 250 miles on the clock, as well as this 5.600-mile 2020 model. However, this pretty amazing 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R with just 18 miles on the clock currently up for grabs at Bring a Trailer looks poised to break the proverbial bank at the moment.

Already bid up to $80,000 with six full days to go in the auction, this 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R is a proper collector’s item, particularly since it’s the rarer, more special, track-focused version of an already track-focused car. It’s also finished in the appealing Shadow Black hue with over-the-top black racing stripes, a carbon-fiber wing, and black 19-inch carbon-fiber seven-spoke wheels wrapped with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires measuring 305/30 up front and 315/30 in the rear.

Underneath, the GT350R features a MagneRide suspension and two-piece brake rotors with Brembo calipers at all four corners, making it a competent track machine. The same goes for the focused cabin, which features Recaro sport seats trimmed in Ebony cloth and Miko suede, an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel, carbon-fiber trim accents, and a rear seat delete, though there are some amenities present, such as air conditioning and a 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.

The real star of the GT350, however, is what powers it – the naturally-aspirated Ford 5.2L V8 Voodoo engine, which sounds amazing thanks to its flat-plane crank. Output is stout at 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque, which is routed to the rear wheels via a Tremec TR-3160 six-speed manual transmission and a 3.73:1 Torsen limited-slip differential. With an original MSRP of $78,020, this particular GT350R is poised to earn its seller a return on their investment, but given how special it is, that isn’t the least bit surprising.
