New details that come directly from Ford reveal that the Shelby GT500 Mustang is going to be a billowing monster.
The Truth About Cars picked up specs from the American automaker’s OEM service portal and deduced that the freakishly fast muscle car will have a top speed of at least 200 MPH.
Wiring diagrams show what appears to be a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 that TTAC estimates could produce around 750 horsepower.
It looks as though the GT500 will employ a 10-speed automatic gear box and a pair of monstrous carbon ceramic brakes to bring all those horses to a halt.
Messages from Ford’s updated VIN decoder indicate that models will also be offered with a supercharger-less 5.2-liter V8 and 2.3-liter 4-cylinder EcoBoost.
An official GT500 announcement could come any day now, so stay tuned.
