Dodge has the Hellcat and Demon, Chevrolet has the Camaro ZL1. Now, Ford too wants a piece of the super muscle car pie. The blue oval’s contender is the 2019 Mustang Shelby GT500.
Ford has released a teaser video of the new Shelby GT500 which is scheduled to debut in 2019. The car will be based on the current-generation Mustang and will feature a more aggressive body kit. The teaser also reveals a fixed rear spoiler and gloss black alloy wheels with the iconic Cobra badge.
Under the hood, the 2019 Mustang Shelby GT500 will most certainly have a V8 -- possibly supercharged. The engine is claimed to produce upwards of 700 hp. This will make it the most powerful, street-legal production Ford ever. That’s right. It will have more power than the Ford GT!
Let the muscle car wars commence.
