Exterior

The new GT350 comes with its well-known aerodynamic and race-inspired look and it will be available in three new exterior colors – Kona Blue, Orange Fury and Lead Foot Grey. That is pretty much all in terms of innovations. However, the front fascia will get the recognizable lowered hood, wide grille with larger front splitter and new vents. In the back part of the vehicle, we have noticed a carbon-fiber rear wing that give this model an aggressive and racing look as well as the quad exhaust set.

These wheels will be wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
