this is a major hit to the Shelby crown.
I don't think so.
Shelby wasn't only known for big horsepower drag racers. The GT500 did a good job fulfilling its legacy and now a new GT350 will do the same. It's a different type of car with a different emphasis.
I would strongly consider a GT350 in a few years. Based on the recently posted videos, the supposed "R" models sounded absolutely fantastic too.
