2016 Ford Shelby GT350R Mustang back seat

The opening line of Ford’s press release detailing the new back seat kit for the Shelby GT350R Mustang reads: “Fun in the back seat has never been this exciting…” There are all sorts of things that we could say about this, but given our preference to keep matters PG, we will simply say that this back seat kit does seem promising.

Ford’s GT350R Mustang ditches the back seat in order to improve track performance through lightweighting. If you are a parent who also so happens to really want this particular car, that presents a problem. Fortunately, if you’re more liable to use the GT350R for show rather than go, then the back seat kit comes in handy.

“We always listen to customer feedback,” said Dave Pericak, global director, Ford Performance. “So when many requested a back seat for their GT350R, we acted quickly to make it available.”

The seats in question are identical to the front seats, including Alcantara and red accent stitching and the GT350’s occupant restraint systems.

The back seat kit will be available through Ford Performance Parts’ website to the tune of $999.
