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.

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.

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.
