2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT550
2016 Ford Mustang will be the high-performance model as the new version for Ford Mustang 2015. We have a strong feeling that the company will keep the Shelby GT500 moniker even if there is an issue that it has a big possibility to have a new name called SVT Cobra. Well, do not wonder if it is GT350 or not, because it is not expected to come in this few years.
2016 Ford Mustang Concept
2016 Ford Mustang is quite promising to be designed with a unique balance for its weight which thankfully it is offered. There is a report that the car will get a new rear-drive platform which is under the development called “S550”. An independent rear suspension will be presented. From the spy photo, there was a carbon-ceramic brake rotor which is placed through the front wheel. At its rear part, there is a rear discs which are crafted from steel so that it provides a new look. What we caught from the spy photo is the car is on a heavy camouflaged concept especially around its front. With it, of course we have a strong belief that there will be a big surprise around its front especially its headlights and taillights and bumpers for 2016 Mustang. In light of some recent interior spy shots we can safely say that the 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will be sporting the similar vintage steering wheel as its 2014 predecessor, which unifies an old school look with modern day functionality. Keeping with the theme, it will also feature a cue-ball shift knob for the manual transmission and a similarly retro tachometer. Some other notable things include the high-backed racing-style Recaro leather seats with fixed head restraints and rather plain audio system.
Ford Mustang has always delivered a substantial amount of power and this 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will be no different. It will reportedly feature a supercharged 5.8-liter V-8 engine, codenamed “Trinity,” capable of pumping out a formidable amount of 662 horesepower and 631 lb-ft of torque. The Trinity is a double barreled beast that would have a significant edge over its competition, especially the ZL1 Chevy Camaro and the Dodge Hellcat. One thing that was eminent is that the tachometer features an indicated redline of 6500 rpm. That is slightly more than 6250rpm that the latter model, the 2014 GT500, offered. However, the overray region of the new tachometer was 7000rpm, same as the already existing model. however, there might be an addition of an optional automatic.
