The new dual overhead cam 5.2l flat plane crank V8 in the Mustang GT350 and GT350 R offers a higher rev range, throttle response and a better more power.

The GT350R sounds nothing like any other Mustang. The R revs loudly on startup, winds up quick and crackles like a race car. The sound in the cabin is somewhere between a Mercedes AMG V8 and a NASCAR engine. If you haven’t heard it in person yet, check out the video below, preferably on a surround sound system.

The GT350 and R have a higher redline than the current Mustang GT 8,250 rpm and quicker throttle response too. That was also a good place for Ford to demonstrate the new MagneRide adjustable suspension, which knows when the car is airborne and tightens up the dampers for a firm and planted touchdown. At speed, Ford says, you can get a good 6 inches of air under all four tires. The MagneRide also impressed us over the corner curbing, which looked aggressive, but didn’t seem to upset the car at all.

At the bottom of that jump is a right hander which necessitated a stomp on the brakes. The Shelby twins get two-piece rotors with aluminum hats and iron rings that measure 15.5 inches. Six piston Brembo calipers reside in front while the rears get four pots.

Ford put us in hybrid HANS devices to keep whiplash at bay. Some of the hardest braking events for me as a passenger have come in a Ferrari 458 and a Volvo race car.
