(Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 2018 Shelby GT350 R on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, it's possible that you've only seen some of our many photographs of the car due to third-party website limitations. To be sure you access all the more than 155 photographs, as well as a short start-up and walk-around video, and a link to its accident and damage-free Carfax history, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors.)

“Relative to European cars, this car is a crazy bargain…” – Doug Demuro, June 2017

Demuro continued: “The funny thing is, I've read a few reviews of this car, and they all say amazing things, as if the car is one of those child prodigies that masters the flute by age 4 and graduates from college by age 9. So I was expecting it to be good, but I was also expecting those reviews to be a little bit fluff…. But no. The reviews are good because the car is simply amazing.”

“It's honestly hard to describe how good this car is, except to say that few vehicles I've driven have made me feel more confident, more secure and more certain that I could read every single move the car was about to make, and it, too, could perfectly respond to all of my moves. The transmission and gear-selector action is absolutely incredible in the sense that they move with precision, exactly how you'd design a gear selector if you were making the perfect performance car. The steering is precise, the chassis feels like a true sports car's, and somehow, in some way, they made this thing handle on the very best level of every high-end sports car I've ever driven in my life.”

Offered here is a 2018 Shelby GT350 R in Magnetic Gray over black. The car's standard “R” equipment includes:

Voodoo 5.2L/526 HP DOHC 32V V-8 engine
429 lb-ft of torque
6-speed manual transmission
Cold air intake
Flat plane crankshaft
3.73 Torsen® limited slip differential
Oil coolers for engine, transmission, and differential
Brembo disc brakes
Electronic adaptive MagneRide® suspension
Ebony interior with Red accents
Carbon fiber rear wing
19 Inch carbon fiber wheels

In addition, this car received a documented replacement engine from Ford in July of 2021. At that time, the Carfax “buyback alert” was entered on the report. No damage of any sort to the car occurred or was recorded at that time. In all, the car's digital odometer shows 6205 miles.

The car's Magnetic Gray metallic paint is unblemished, uniformly glossy, and perfectly appropriate for a Shelby creation. The twin, over-the-top, matte-black-with-thin-red-trim racing stripes harken to the Shelby Mustangs of old. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, please be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) All trim (including the front Shelby-branded “splitter” spoiler) is free of wear; all emblems (including the red Shelby cobra emblems front and rear, and “GT350” fender emblems) are in their factory-applied locations. Gloss-black-painted, 19-inch, 7-spoke carbon-fibe-composite wheels are mounted with Michelin 303/30 performance tires. Red-painted Brembo®-branded brake calipers and cross-drilled rotors are easily visible through the open-wheel design. The Shelby's exterior paint work has been professionally ceramic-coated. This GT350 R could've just rolled out of a Ford-dealer showroom.

Inside, the same “unblemished” descriptor applies to every surface, all executed in black with tasteful red accents and brushed-metal enhancements. Recaro-branding in red accents the black, very well-bolstered racing seats (with suede inserts); red stitching and red “R” embroidery on the headrests add more visual "pop." Door-trim design echoes this look, including the red accent stitching. Factory black carpeting remains in excellent condition. The purposeful, driver-focused dash and instruments are in perfect condition and are framed by the cobra-emblem steering wheel. Dash “GT350 R” badging includes the car's chassis number. Every feature works as it should; every graphic or switch-identifier—including on the console-mounted 6-speed manual shifter with red shift-pattern inlay—is without wear. We encourage careful appraisal of the close-up photography in the gallery to assess the excellent condition of interior surfaces throughout.

Under the hood, the fresh 5.2-liter, 526-horsepower V8, in sinister-looking black, lurks beneath a factory-installed, Ford Performance-branded shock-tower brace. The engine features the signatures of the technicians who built it. As with the rest of the car, the surfaces on the engine and related components are spotless, and the same applies to the car's chassis when viewed from below.

All the car's original identification and information tags remain as mounted at the factory.

While the more than 155 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '2018 Shelby GT350 R in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.

Motor Trend's period review of the GT350 (before the “R” was even launched) headlined it: “Worth the wait, and then some.” For an “R,” the waiting would've been even more challenging. Here's an opportunity to acquire a stunning, virtually untouched GT350 R... and put an end to all the waiting... and a beginning to all the fun!
