Like most of the other Shelbys, the heart of this car is the brilliant 5.2-liter, flat-plane crank Voodoo V8. Like the Shelby GT350R-C and GT4, the new FP350S is not street legal. The car was designed with NASA and SCCA club racing in mind.
The engine is untouched save for a new oil pan and oil cooler. The FP350S is equipped with the Tremec 3160 manual transmission and features a 3.73 final drive ratio and a Torsen differential. The chassis has been stiffened with seam welds, and a six-point FIA-spec roll cage has been fitted. The driver sits in a Sparco FIA-compliant seat with a Sabelt harness, and will pilot the thing through a quick release steering wheel. The electronic power steering has been modified by Ford Performance.
Underneath, the FP350S rides on Sachs coilovers and dampers with adjustable caster/camber plates. The brakes have been upgraded to AP Racing Radi-CAL six-piston calipers with two-piece 372mm rotors in the front and four-piston calipers with two-piece 340mm rotors in the rear with a Ford Performance ABS system. The car comes standard with 19 x 10.5-inch front and 19 x 11-inch rear wheels, with a forged 18 x 11-inch race wheel package available as an option.
Additional bits include a MOTEC data acquisition system, front and rear tow hooks, a Ford performance carbon-matrix splitter, and an APR Performance carbon fiber adjustable rear wing.
Pricing hasn't been announced, but the Shelby FP350S will be available for order at dealerships soon.
