Shelby GT Mustang EcoBoost delivers more than 340 PS

Shelby American is expanding its vehicle lineup by introducing a GT version of the 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost model.

“Ever since Ford announced that its terrific new Mustang would be available worldwide, requests for Shelby versions of the car have rolled in from across the globe,” said Shelby American CEO Joe Conway.

The exterior of the Shelby GT Mustang EcoBoost is fitted with carbon fiber materials as seen on the front splitter, hood, grill and side skirts. Shelby American adds that the vehicle comes with carbon fiber rear spoiler and 20-inch Venice WELD Racing wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport tires.

The Shelby GT Mustang EcoBoost comes with a number of performance options such as upgraded brakes, stronger half shafts and revamped cooling system.    

Inside, the Shelby GT Mustang EcoBoost features minor design changes. It has embroidered headrests, Shelby floor mats and a serial number dash plaque.

Performance-wise, the vehicle is powered by a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine. It also has an optimized ECU and a tweaked Ford Performance exhaust. With this, Shelby American claims that the engine delivers more than 340 PS.
