700bhp-plus Shelby Mustang GT500 to arrive in 2019
The “most powerful street-legal production Ford ever” has been confirmed. Yikes
Ford has confirmed that next year, it plans to roll out a model of such ferocity, its entire DNA is centred on “attacking tracks and drag strips”. Yes folks, the Mustang Shelby GT500 is making a return.
Last seen a few years ago, Ford will revive the classic moniker for what it promises is the most powerful street-legal production Ford model in history. Yep, even more power than a Ford GT.
Estimates are that it’ll produce in excess of 700bhp. That’s a number not to be sniffed at in a Mustang. It is, as Ford remind us, twice as powerful as the original 1967 GT500.
Producing this “venom” will be a supercharged V8, and attempting to control it will be the might of Ford Performance’s expertise, who promise it’ll feature “innovative’ track tech, performance hardware and “functional track-tuned styling”. So, it’ll have some sort of lovely wing appendage at the back.
More as we have it…
