After being discontinued in 2014, the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 has been keenly anticipated among the fans. Well, according to the rumors and spy photos that our team has got, we can inform you that this well-known high-performance car has been tested and planned to be revealed as a 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 model.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, this model has been mostly compared to the 2019 GT350 in terms of styling. However, the new GT500 will appear more aggressive. Although we have observed the camouflaged version only, we have still managed to get some hints about this new sports coupe and its body. The chassis will be unique and more aerodynamic. Some of the previously mentioned features that resemble the GT350 will be body panels, but you will also find some significant changes and improvements. In the front fascia, you will see a brand-new hood with a redesigned grille. The bumper with a front splitter will be more massive. The air intakes found in the bumper will be larger and let more air into the engine. You will also spot new side skirts as well as the new Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires on the wheels. In the back part of the vehicle, this model will wear a larger fixed rear wing on the top of its trunk. All of these features will largely improve the total performance of this car and give it a sporty and dynamic styling.
The well-known Mustang interior will not change much inside the new 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. In fact, there is perhaps a lack of information when it comes to cabin since the camouflaged version of this model has barely let us see some exterior features. Although the dashboard and center console will remain similar, the interior will undergo some changes and upgrades. The flat-bottomed steering wheel will resemble the one found inside the GT350, but the GT500 will get sound system, rear seats, air-conditioning, rearview camera and other features that have been left out of the GT350. We remind you that the GT350 has been more performance oriented.
It has not been confirmed yet what type of engine the 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will be hiding under its hood. However, one of the options could come with a 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8. The other version includes a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine that has been found in the GT350. Perhaps, the new GT500 will use neither of these and employ a brand-new engine, but it has been rumored that it should hit more than 700 horsepower.
2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Release Date and Price
The 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is expected to hit the market sometime in 2018, but the release date has not been confirmed yet. There is also a chance that the number of these models will be limited. Be that as it may, you should know that the new GT500 will not be cheap. In fact, the estimated price starts at $70,000.
