Ford steps up to the plate in a Big Way with the new 2012 GT350 Convertible

Ford steps up to the plate in a Big Way with the new 2012 GT350 Convertible option being shown in Chicago. This is one of the sharpest sports cars I have seen in awhile and when you factor in the price point compared to other nameplates it might sound crazy but the 2012 GT350 Convertible is a “value play” for those in this market. This is one summer ride that we would love to review in the coming months so at least our readers know we’re trying to get our hands on one of these machines!


The 2011 Shelby GT350 followed nearly the same philosophy as the Ford Model T. You could get it in any color you want as long as it was white with blue stripes. That’s changing for 2012, as Shelby will also be offering the GT350 in Race Red and Kona Blue. A convertible option will be available, as well. In fact, this is the first time Shelby has built a drop-top GT350 since 1970.

The 2012 GT350 will offer up identical performance as the 2011 model, although one could argue that it didn’t need an upgrade in the first place. Customers can choose between the 430-horsepower base model or opt for either 525- or 624-horsepower versions. Additional upgrades include a full body kit, Cragar wheels, larger brakes, sport suspension and more. The convertible also comes with the option of a light bar.
