Automotive leaks are no longer clear. Is it a real leak or a mistake? Or is it a plan hijacked by automakers to produce a good thrashing and a manhood? If it’s the last, call us guilty while we take part in the viral echo chamber, because this is too good to let through!
The advent of the Shelby GT500 has been one of the most badly kept secrets in the automotive industry. This should not even be considered a secret because everyone knows that it will be a GT500 produced eventually. It’s like wondering if a new Spiderman will be produced, ALWAYS will be a new Spiderman, we only know the details or when it will come out.
This time, Motor Trend did the honors to release the Shelby GT500 a little prematurely. The September edition has just been published and the section “Buyer’s Guide to the new car” simply exceeded the horsepower figures for the top of the GT500 line
“We do not expect many changes to the GT350 / R. A new GT500 with a 5.0 liter supercharged and new injection configuration could start in 2018.”
Check the optional engine column and you will see that the top of the ‘Stang line will be a 5.0L 680 horsepower and 630 lb-ft of supercharged V8 torque. This will make it even more powerful than the newly launched Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 which makes up 650 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque, making 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. What does Motor Trend claim the GT500 from 0 to 60 km / h? 3.3 SECOND!
This will make the new GT500 the most powerful and fastest Mustang production ever, bringing up the latest Shelby GT500 (2013 model) that produced 662 horsepower and 631 pound-feet of torque from a supercharged 5, 8L.
We have already said it and we will repeat it: there has never been a better time to be a muscle-car lover. This cream of Mustangs and Camaros culture keeps getting better, and if you’re a fan of Mustang or a Camaro fan, the competition has never been so exciting or fierce.
