There are data on the updated Ford Mustang Shelby GT500June 6, 2019
The long-awaited American novelty will receive the engine, whose power will be more than 700 horsepower. Official data on the car so far not so much.
The exact characteristics of the updated Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 remain secret, but the American company does not hesitate to show the model to potential buyers at events such as the 2019 Ford Nationals in Pennsylvania (USA). This video gives a great idea of the upcoming muscle car and its aerodynamics.
A company spokesman says that the new Shelby GT500 will receive a 5.2-liter supercharged V8, producing “more than 700 horsepower.”
According to insiders, automaker engineers continue to refine the power plant and find ways to improve its performance. That would be an explanation of why Ford is not yet offering official, definitive data on the amount of horsepower and torque for the updated GT500.
The GT500 presented here is in basic configuration, not with the optional Carbon Fiber Track. This means that there are no parts in the car such as carbon wheels, a fixed rear wing and Recaro seats inside. These relatively minor changes make a big aesthetic difference, making the standard GT500 look less ready for the track and look more like a “street racer”.
In addition, we are shown the GT500 aerodynamic test mule, which demonstrates an alternative, even more aggressive approach to creating a car design.
GT500 engineer Karl Widmann also opens the hood of the car and talks about some details. For example, the strut rack is different from other models and uses magnesium in its composition to stay light and durable. Widman also gets behind the wheel, demonstrating the sound choosing different exhaust modes.
Not so long ago, we wrote that Ford had taught its cars to communicate with pedestrian gadgets.
