One of the best things about Jay Leno’s Garage is that we often get to see brand new or classic Ford vehicles, since it has been such an important auto company throughout the history of cars. Recently he did an episode on the Harley Davidson Ford F-150 in his garage, but his newest one took it to the opposite end of the spectrum with the Shelby GT350R. Want to see the 2015 Ford Shelby GT350R on Jay Leno’s Garage and learn about what makes this such a special car? Check it out below!
Jay Leno drives the 2015 Ford Shelby GT350R
The latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage put the focus on one of our favorite cars: the 2015 Ford Shelby GT350R. But what exactly makes the Shelby so special? Well, the Shelby GT350R offers the most capability and power in a Mustang that you can get, and is designed in the same spirit as the 1965 Shelby GT350 Competition model. Under the hood is a 5.2L V8 engine with a flat-plane crankshaft — which takes inspiration from exotic European sports cars.
How exclusive is the 2015 Ford Shelby GT350R?
So cars like the Shelby GT350R are pretty special because it’s not something you see everyday — unless you’re Jay Leno. Like the upcoming Ford GT, it’s a very limited car, but just how rare is it? Well, there was only 137 2015 Ford Shelby GT350R models made — and the new episode of Jay Leno’s Garage is a great opportunity to really see it explored in full and discussed in detail.
