Image of Alleged New Shelby GT500 Engine LeakedDecember 12th, 2017
The familiar “ready to strike” cobra logo has been part of the Shelby family for generations, so there’s no question that it will appear prominently on the upcoming 2019/2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. The image here – posted on MustangG6.com’s forums, is said to be a shot of the GT500’s supercharged engine blower.
The 5.0-liter engine in the Mustang GT is known as the “Coyote,” but the engine in the GT500 is said to be called the “Predator.” The image came alongside a confidential document called “2020 MY North American Vehicle Program – Engine Oil Requirements.” A footnote on that document claims that the GT500 engine will use an Eaton-supercharged cross plane version of the Ford 5.2-liter engine. Rumors suggest that the GT500 could have over 800 hp and a dual-clutch transmission derived from the unit in the Ford GT.
