Howling Coyote: Ford Mustang, F-150 getting 700-hp supercharger

  Howling Coyote: Ford Mustang, F-150 getting 700-hp supercharger Ford Performance and Roush reveal blower at SEMA.Ford Performance and Roush announced at SEMA that they have developed a supercharger kit for the 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine in the 2018 Mustang and F-150. For the Mustang, the setup is rated at 700 peak horsepower and 610 pound-feet of torque. That's a boost of 240 hp over a stock Mustang GT, and an additional 190 pound-feet of torque — and it's far above the Shelby ratings, too.

The Shelby GT 500 —an insanely powerful version of the Mustang pony car—bowed out when the new generation car launched for 2015. But now it has returned starting in 2019 as a 2020 model year, and it’s set to be the most powerful street-legal Ford ever with over 700 horsepower.

A brand new teaser from the Blue Oval says the super Shelby will return in 2019.

It seems Ford is pulling out all the stops for its Mustang fans ahead of the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. Hot on the heels of a new Mustang Bullitt now comes an official teaser for the new Shelby GT500 Mustang, shown both on Ford’s Facebook page and YouTube account.

The video appears to be computer rendered, showing a current-generation Mustang with serious hood louvers, and honking big spoiler, and a promise of over 700 horsepower. The Facebook post says the muscle machine is slated for 2019, and when it debuts, it will be the most powerful street-legal production vehicle the company has ever made.

The sounds included in the video are quite reminiscent of the current Shelby GT350’s 5.2-liter flat-plane crank V8 engine, which would follow the rumors we’ve heard about the GT500 getting such a mill, albeit crammed full with enough forced induction to produce Hellcat-rivaling horsepower figures. The latest rumors say the supercharger alone will have a displacement of 2.6-liters, which is more than many four-cylinder cars are using these days. Also tied to those rumors is a horsepower figure of 750, but again, those are just rumors.

This Early Shelby GT350 Mustang Is An Original $575k Time Capsule

  This Early Shelby GT350 Mustang Is An Original $575k Time Capsule It's an early-build 1965 model that is absolutely gorgeous. Whether you consider it a muscle car or Pony car, the 1965 Shelby GT350 Mustang is as iconic as it is rare. That is, an original Shelby is rare – few cars are cloned as often as Shelby Mustangs, so while you’ve probably seen them at auto shows, odds are they’re standard Mustangs wearing Shelby attire. That’s because only 562 1965 Shelby GT350s were built all total, including prototypes and the race-only R models. At the end of the day, just a little over 500 were actually built for street use.© Motor1.

Ford Confirms 2019 Mustang Shelby GT 500 With Over 700 HP . The Shelby GT 500 should come with a premium over the GT350’s ,845 asking price; expect to pay somewhere closer to ,000 when it debuts.

Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500 will return in 2019 , packing over 700 horsepower. With over 700 hp , the GT 500 will beat the 650- hp Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, and could match or exceed the 707- hp Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.

What transmission could handle that power? Going back to the rumor mill, cog swapping is expected to be done automatically for the first time in the modern GT500’s history. The box is thought to be the same 10-speed automatic put to use in the F-150 Raptor and the big Shelby’s competition, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.

We’ve caught a few glimpses of beefy Mustang prototypes wearing heavy camouflage on the hood and sporting sticky tires with massive Brembo brakes behind them. Now that Ford has confirmed a new GT500 with at least 700 horsepower and a massively vented hood, we understand all the pomp and circumstance.

The big question we now have is whether the GT500 will also offer some of the GT350’s agility, or if it will be a big horsepower hammer to kill the competition in a straight line. It looks like the next few months could be very exciting.

Ford is Taking Orders for the 2019 Bullitt .
To celebrate the 50 years since the automotive cult-classic movie Bullitt, Ford has announced that it's taking orders for the 2019 Mustang Bullitt. This car isn't just some badges, fancy keys, and different floor mats. In fact, they've removed most of the badging and included some stout performance elements with this special Mustang.The engine shares the intake manifold with the GT350 and breathes a bit easier with an open-air intake and 87mm throttle body. A unique power control module will be added to make all 480 ponies and 420 lb.-ft of torque work to get the car to its 163 mph top speed in a hurry.
