Last week, Ford leaked its first official teaser for the imminent Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 2019. According to a post on Mustang6G, a news and forum blog for Mustang fans, the super car is scheduled to debut in the Chicago Auto Show early next month as the Blue Oval has a tradition of presenting its fast cars in the Windy City.
In detail, the deleted article suggested that the car should debut on the first day of the show on February 8. However, this article was taken down over last weekend and organizers from the said event also clarified that the mentioned above information was posted "in error". The name of the model is also no longer included in the list of Vehicles on Display and Debut Vehicles on the official website of the event.
