Are you impressed by a Cobra symbol?

Up to now, we have still had a vague idea what the Ford Mustang 2019 will be. Some photos supposed to be the new Ford Mustang Bullit were revealed. And it seemed that we just had to welcome the 2019 Mustang at Detroit Auto Show 2018 next month. However, other leaked images showed that the Bullit was not what we’ve been looking for. It’s the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 instead.

As a proof, on a famous Ford Mustang forum named “Mustang6G”, a close-up of the Mustang’s engine bay has been exposed. The image confirms a 5.2-liter supercharged Predator engine labeled Cobra symbol. Not only that, the owner of this image has also unveiled one more picture which is of an engine oil requirements document showing the “5.2L Mustang GT350” being produced together with the “5.2L Supercharged Mustang GT500.” Additionally, a footnote inscription reading “Updated 10/13/17”, to some extent, confirms information about the 2019 model.

Another image posted by another MustangG6 member presents massive Brembo brakes of the GT500, purportedly. It is also suggested that a Cobra R variant would be in the works that will directly compete against the Camaro ZL1 1LE from Chevy.

Those are forum posts, so we should take them with a pinch of salt. That said, those are all we’ve got and concerning the reputation of MustangG6, we believe that those are true.

Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will be faster and sportier than ever

As for power delivery, it’s strongly believed that the new Mustang will generate more than 526 hp of the GT350. Nevertheless, in order to push back the Camaro ZL1, our GT500 must crank out at least 650 hp. Further, according to latest car news, it appears that the Blue Oval also intends to join the battle against the Dodge Challenger Hellcat which is capable of up to 707 hp. So, rumor has it that the workhorse might produce more than 800 hp with a V8 mill.

No matter how potent the supercharged engine is, the only thing we can sure for now is that the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will be faster and sportier than ever. Just wait and see.
