BEAST! At the recent Los Angeles motor show Ford revealed the Shelby GT350. The most desirable Mustang yet.

What makes it so awesome? For starters the GT350 boasts the most powerful naturally-aspirated engine Ford has ever produced.

The motor is a 5.2-litre V8 found only in the GT350, and is the first Ford V8 to feature a flat-plane crankshaft, something more commonly seen in Ferraris.

It's not clear just how much power it makes, but Ford say it is "more than 500hp" (370kw) and 542Nm.

There's a six-speed manual and a Torsen LSD underneath, and those keen to race their GT350 can option a 'Track Pack' which adds oil coolers for engine and transmission.

The bad news is Ford aren't making any in right-hand drive, meaning it's very unlikely we'll ever see one on Aussie soil.

We reckon it looks perfect in traditional white and blue livery. Ford, please bring it Down Under!
