Ford hints at 772 hp the new Mustang Shelby GT500January 29, 2018
The new 2018 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 of the new generation can become a more powerful competitor for the Dodge Challenger Hellcat and the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.
The power of the compressor 5.2-liter V8 engine for the new Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 can reach 772 horsepower. This is reported on the reddit.com forum, referring to the so-called “Easter Egg” from the company, which allegedly encrypted the performance indicator on the car’s dashboard photo in the brochure to the Mustang 2018.
Earlier, fans of the Mustang GT500 model already found the “Easter egg” on photographs of a 12-inch digital instrument panel. The cipher consisted in the image of the 4th transmission transmission and the speed of 55 miles per hour (88 km per hour). Combining these two indicators, enthusiasts received a figure of 455 (hp) for the V8 Mustang engine in 2018.
This time in the published brochure in the picture the following indicators are observed: 7th gear and 72 miles per hour. Car enthusiasts are confident that it is the 772 horsepower that will be powered by a 5.2-liter V8 engine with a new Mustang Shelby GT500 compressor. It will be possible to make sure of this during the premiere of this novelty, when the manufacturer will disclose its technical characteristics.
The debut of the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 of the new generation could take place in February at the Chicago Auto Show.
