New Ford Mustang Shelby GT500’s supercharged V-8 leaked again

Earlier in December, a photo showing a 5.2-liter supercharged V-8 with the famous Shelby Cobra snake logo surfaced on the web. The engine was claimed to be the power source of Ford’s new Mustang Shelby GT500 based on the sixth-generation Mustang, though there was no way to confirm this.

Fast forward to today and new images have surfaced that corroborate the earlier photo, and this time they come directly from Ford. Posted on the Mustang6G forum are two CAD images that show a supercharged V-8 with the same supercharging housing design. If you look closely, you’ll notice the embossed Shelby Cobra snake logo as seen in the earlier photo.

The CAD images are from a collection of official wiring diagrams supplied by Ford. They were labelled as wiring diagrams for the 2018 Mustang Shelby GT350’s 5.2-liter V-8, and the entire text overlay is for the GT350 engine, but the engine image itself is clearly a supercharged unit.

The GT500 is now thought to be arriving in early 2018, as a 2019 model. Based on the latest information, we can expect the car to be packing a supercharged version of the 5.2-liter V-8 in the GT350.

Rumors suggest the supercharged version of the engine, currently doing the rounds under the Predator code name, will feature a more conventional cross-plane crank instead of the atmo engine’s flat-plane unit. We’re sure there will be a number of other differences as the expected power rating for the engine is the 800-horsepower mark.

Other rumored details for the GT500 include a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission borrowed from the Ford GT supercar, a set of 20-inch wheels with 315-millimeter tires, an uprated Brembo brake package, and a new front fascia.

The car's main rivals will be the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE and Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. They deliver 650 and 707 hp, respectively.

Stay tuned.
GT500 name, carbon-ceramic brakes tentatively confirmed for Mustang range-topper

Another week goes by and new details about the 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 have managed to surface.

This time the details come via Ford’s own OEM service portal and include the engine wiring diagrams we saw a week ago as well as service procedures that reference the GT500 name and some important specs.

According to the details, first published by The Truth About Cars blog, the GT500 will have a top speed of at least 200 mph. The final figure will likely be higher, though, considering the previous-generation GT500 already managed to crack the 200-mph mark on Italy’s Nardo test track (the rumored number is 202 mph).

The service procedures also make mention of carbon-ceramic brakes, a head-up display, and the use of damper control. The latter will likely be the same magnetic ride control suspension used on the Mustang Shelby GT350.

Interestingly, the GT500’s driving modes selector will allegedly omit Track and Snow/Wet modes in favor of new Drag Strip setting and Launch Control modes, suggesting the car will be targeted more toward the drag strip than the race track.

And one final, worrying detail is the absence of the GT350's naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V-8 for the 2019 model year in the VIN decoder of the service portal. This suggests the GT350 might disappear once the GT500 rolls in. The listed engines include the 2.3-liter turbocharged inline-4 of the Mustang EcoBoost, the 5.0-liter V-8 of the Mustang GT, and a new supercharged 5.2-liter V-8 for the GT500.

With so much info already upon us, the GT500’s reveal can’t be far. A good bet is the 2018 North American International Auto Show taking place in Detroit in a fortnight. Stay tuned.
