The long-awaited us the novelty will receive the engine, whose power will be more than 700 horsepower. Official data about the car is that not so much.
The exact characteristics of the updated Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 remains secret, but the American company is not shy to show the model to potential buyers, such as Ford Nationals 2019 Pennsylvania (USA). This video gives a great presentation about the upcoming “muscular” car and its aerodynamics.
The representative of the company says that the new Shelby GT500 will be a 5.2-liter supercharged V8 producing “over 700 HP”.
According to insiders, the automaker’s engineers continue to Refine the power plant and to find ways to improve its performance. It would be an explanation of why Ford does not yet offer official, definitive data on the number of horsepower and torque for the upgraded GT500.
GT500 presented here is in its base configuration, not with optional Carbon Fibre Track. This means that the car is missing items such as carbon wheels, fixed rear wing and Recaro seats inside. These relatively minor changes make a big aesthetic difference, making the standard GT500 look less ready for track and more like “street racer”.
In addition, we show the aerodynamic test mule GT500, which shows an alternate, more aggressive approach to the design of the car.
GT500 engineer Carl Widmann also opens the hood of the car and talks about some of the details. For example, the strut spacer is different from other models and uses magnesium in its composition, in order to remain lightweight and durable. Widman also gets behind the wheel, demonstrating the sound by choosing different modes of the exhaust.
