I wanted to keep this post short and sweet, just talking a little bit about the news on the 2019 Shelby Mustang GT500 we have received. As at the time of me writing this, Ford has teased the car at the Detroit Auto Show. In the teaser video (there will be a link to it at the bottom of this post), there are a few shots of different parts of the new GT500, such as the wheels in the picture above. It was a pretty basic video, mainly to drum up some hype for the snake-badged beast’s return. Ford did want to make one thing about it very clear though…
If you watch the teaser video until the end, a very intriguing number appears that really shows this new Shelby is no joke. According to Ford, the 2019 GT500 will have over 700bhp at its disposal. Going off rumours now, it has been said that a new supercharger is to thank for that great amount of power. I would’ve prefered a naturally aspirated engine, but I’m not going to argue with 700+ horsepower. That’s more than enough to keep me happy.
Here are some more pictures from the teaser video.
