The said Michelin tyre mentioned above is none other than the Pilot Sport Cup 2. It has specific tread patterns and a compound formulation created specifically for the Shelby GT350. According to Ford Performance, the 19-inch tyres (295/35 front and 305/35 rear) have significantly improved acceleration and braking.

Also added to the mix are aerodynamic innovations derived from wind tunnel testing. These include a new rear spoiler and an optimised grille closeout design. Other improvements to the car include an active suspension upgrade that’s designed to complement the aerodynamic forces on the car. Six-piston front and four-piston rear callipers from Brembo for exceptional stopping power complete the 2019 car’s upgrades.

Interior wise, the production 2019 Shelby GT350 will feature a newly-upgraded interior with several options, including exposed carbon fibre and Miko suede. New colours are also being added, including both Velocity Blue and Ford Performance Blue, while racing strips can be painted on.

The 2019 GT350 is powered by a 5.2-litre V8, which produces 526 horsepower and 582 Nm of torque.
