2015 Shelby gt500

As we expect the new 2015 Mustang in December, there are many other whispers about further steps for Ford. As you probably know, in next year, Mustang will celebrate its 50th anniversary since its debut. It wan in NY car show back in 1963. The pony car became extremely popular, so as was its other models. For the 2016 we can hear that Ford is planning to give us one more replication of one of their legendary vehicles – the Mustang Shelby GT350. But, before that, we could get another iconic vehicle from Ford and it should be Mustang Shelby GT500.

The true muscle car is the high-performer variation of the new generation of Mustangs. That should keep GT500 as a moniker. There is no revelation, but it is rumored, that because of announced return of the Shelby GT350, GT500 could be launched as Mustang SVT Cobra. But rumors without real source, and it is hardly to happen. One factor that makes this gossip less possible is that GT350 Mustang is planned for a year after GT500, or even more, so it is safe to assume this is a GT500.

What made muscle cars so popular? Their horsepower rates. The more it has – the better. Under current Mustang GT500 lays supercharged 5.8-liter V-8 with an almost unbelievable 662 hp and 631 lb-ft of torque and it is connected with only one transmission option – six-speed manual. So, for the new 2015 Shelby GT500, we can expect a few more horses there. Its main competitor Chevrolet Camaro ZL1C has 82 hp and 75 lb-ft of torque less in it’s performance, which is just to much to be ignored. There are no rumors telling us that Chevy will improve its Camaro, so  “Trinity”, GT500’s code name, will continue dto dominate muscle car’s market.

What is new about 2015 Mustang GT500 driving. First of all, there is new rear-drive platform code-named “S550”, and that’s a big change for the pony car’s rear suspension. Only time when Ford has RWD were during 1999–2004 with SVT Cobra. This is the biggest development work on the GT500 is centered. In the spy photos of testings, we could see that new 2015 GT500 will again wear more-muscular and aerodynamically optimized sheet-metal than regular Mustangs.

Price is still hard to be guessed. Current model’s price tag of $54,995 will probably be raised. Also, if the new carbon-ceramic brakes reach production and with the fancier tires, it is sure that new price will top the one of the latest models.
