At the 2015 North American International Auto Show a more refined, hardcore and limited production version of the GT350 was unveiled called the GT350R, it still has the GT350's 5.2-liter flat-plane crank V8 engine, producing the same power output as the GT350, but items like the air conditioning, stereo, trunk floorboard, all the carpeting, the rear seats, and the backup camera have been removed.
The GT350R is also equipped with carbon-fiber wheels that each weigh approximately 15 pounds less than the aluminum wheels on the GT350. Overall, the GT350R is 130 lb (59 kg) lighter than the GT350. A larger splitter and rear wing help improve downforce, with the wing drawing the car's weight balance more rearwards
