- 2016 Ford Mustang GT350R starts at $61,295 (excluding destination and gas tax.)
Both muscle cars are powered by Ford’s most powerful naturally aspirated and most high-reving flat-plane crank 5.2 liter V8 engine that develops 526 horses at 7,500 rpm and 429lb-ft (581Nm) of torque at 4,750 rpm. Its redline starts at 8,250 rpm. 6-speed manual is the only option for transmission, tuned Torsen limited-slip differential delivers the power to the rear wheels.
Stiffer suspension, better brakes and unique exterior and interior styling differ both GTs from other S550s.
