VIDEO: One of Steeda’s Own is Selling HIs GT350 Test Car

We typically don’t feature too many online classified on this site, and the shelf-life of the content is fairly limited. But whenever we hear news of a R&D vehicle from one of our favorite manufactures crossing the block, we’re all ears.

Such is the case of this 2018 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350, currently owned by Chris Cervenka of Steeda Autosports. Chris has been manning the marketing side of things at Steeda for a hot minute, but in that time, he had the opportunity to take his personal Shelby to the next level. Using his car as a rolling test bed, Steeda stopped the car up with several performance, suspension, and cosmetic upgrades to set Chris’ Shelby GT350 apart from the rest.

But now that the car has served its purpose, and Chris is ready for the next chapter of vehicle ownership, the GT350 is now up for grabs on Bring-A-Trailer.

Official Release:

Steeda-Modified 2018 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350

Currently a second owner vehicle with a clean title. Purchased in January 2021 from LaFayette Ford Lincoln in Fayetteville, NC with 24,590 miles and Ford Certified Pre-Owned Warranty. Since then, it has been transitioned to a serialized Steeda GT350 by Steeda Performance Vehicles featuring an assortment of Steeda suspension and drivetrain components. This GT350 has been used for Steeda product development and video content for various S550 Steeda products and has been meticulously maintained by Steeda’s in-house technicians.

This is not a perfect car by any means. Ford Performance built these cars to be driven! This car does have a Gen 2 5.2L Voodoo engine installed professionally at 35,394 miles by Blake Gregory at Benson Ford in Greenville, SC. This service was performed under Ford’s factory powertrain warranty. New engine has 7,500 miles on it and oilconsumption is minimal (an inherent problem with these motors). Oil changed every 3-5k miles and/or before & after track days.

Factory wheels are included with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, with 5/32nds or 55% tread left all around.
