The high-performance variant of the next-generation Ford Mustang, which we believe will certainly stop its Shelby GT500 name. If you’re questioning whether this is a GT350, well, that model isn’t really anticipated to show up till a couple of years after the 2015 Mustang debuts, so it’s secure to think this is a GT500 mule.2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 review bellow:
The present GT500 comes loading heat in the form of a supercharged 5.8-liter V-8 pumping out a cruel 662 ponies and 631 lb-ft of torque. The Camaro’s not going anywhere, and neither is the long-running muscle-car rivalry between Chevy and Ford, so the next GT500 will certainly need to keep the present auto’s edge.
System and Technology
The upcoming Mustang will certainly ride on a new rear-drive system code-named “S550” that’s anticipated to be somewhat smaller sized compared to the present Mustang’s design. Our guess is that this is where the bulk of the development job on the GT500 is focused; the designers have to tune the suspension to take care of the Trinity motor’s mighty thrust and distinct weight harmony. As for the automobile’s body, it is clear from the test automobile in these photos that the GT500 will certainly again put on more-muscular and aerodynamically enhanced sheetmetal than regular Mustangs.
Whereas the outward bound design wore Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar rubber, the model you see here trips on staggered-width Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. Just what seem carbon-ceramic brake rotors peek with the front tire spokes, yet the rear discs seem normal steel devices. For endorsement, the outbound GT500’s brakes were steel throughout.
Powertrain and Engine range
We expect the Shelby GT500 will certainly once more utilize the 5.8-liter Trinity V-8, and while a power bump is feasible, it’s not at all necessary. The GT500 today struggles to lay down the power and is plenty fast– with the next-gen Mustang’s expected weight decrease, more energy would certainly appear superfluous. Once more, the GT500 must acquire just a single transmission alternative: a six-speed handbook.
Competition: Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, Chevrolet Corvette, Nissan GT-R.
The car most likely won’t show up till 2015 as a 2016 design. (The base V-6 and V-8 Mustangs are expected to go on sale next year as 2015 model-year providings.)
Don’t be amazed if the GT500’s rate borders upwards from its existing $54,995 base cost, specifically if the fancier tires and carbon-ceramic brakes get to manufacturing.
