Racers looking to run a hotter-than-stock 2011 Mustang are about to get another option: the 2011 Shelby GT350 SCCA package. It dumps the supercharger to fit within the rules, but keeps the full brake, suspension and aerodynamics package to make for a fairly mean racing machine.
Engine output is pegged at the stocker's 412-horsepower rating, as post-factory engine modifications aren't allowed in the SCCA's ruleset. Baer brakes with six-piston front calipers and 14-inch rotors in the rear ensure improved fade resistance, while Ford Racing springs, struts, sway bars and adjustable camber/caster plates make the car tunable for the track. The aero package also likely reduces lift at high speeds, adding stability.
Appearance is also going to stay the same, with the standard Guardsman Blue Le Mans stripes on white theme on all GT350s, along with scoops, GT350 badges and unique tail light trim. Inside, the A-pillar-mounted fuel pressure and oil pressure gauges are also likely to stay, though the boost gauge will obviously be dropped.
The package will cost $26,995, a $7,000 discount over the supercharged version, on top of the price of the base Mustang GT.
