Knowing Jay Leno and his passion for cars it was only a matter of time when he will buy this super rare Mustang Shelby GT350R.
I say super rare because Ford made only 37 of these beauties in 2015 celebrating 50 years of Carroll Shelby. With a 5.2-liter V8 Voodoo engine that generates 530 horsepower and 430 lb-ft this Mustang is the most expensive one, selling for almost $62.000.
On the video below the former Tonight Show host Jay Leno has Jamal Hameedi by his side who is Performance Chief Engeneer for Ford. Jamal will try and present all the bangs and whatnots that come with this GT 350R. What I think it’s very interesting is the fact that Ford were able to put carbon rims on this car. Only Koenigsegg put carbon wheels straight from factory but on a million dollar car…
At the end of the day I think Ford couldn’t have come up with a better car than this for the 50th anniversary of Shelby GT350. When a man who owns more than 140 cars and over 100 motorcycles says that this is “the greatest Mustang ever built” you better believe it!
Now kick back and watch this episode of Jay Leno’s Garage.
