A lot of Shelby GT350 Mustang owners probably won't be driving their cars in harsh winter conditions but Ford has released a new video which shows the model is more than capable in cold weather.

A lot of Shelby GT350 Mustang owners probably won't be driving their cars in harsh winter conditions but Ford has released a new video which shows the model is more than capable of handling cold weather.

In the clip, Ford's John Toth highlights the company's drivability test facility which can simulate "almost any whether extreme on the plant earth." Toth goes on to explain the facility can recreate a number of conditions including sun, wind, humidity and temperatures between -40° - 130° F (-40° - 54.4° C).

The facility can also simulate a massive snow storm so engineers can ensure the shift linkage doesn't freeze up and the air filters don't get clogged.

As a refresher, the Shelby GT350 has a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter flat-plane crank V8 engine that develops more than 500 bhp (373 kW) and 400 lb-ft (542 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed manual transmission which sends power to the rear wheels via a Torsen limited slip differential.
