2015 Ford Mustang GT350
2015 Ford Mustang GT350 is coming this December, but it won’t end on that. Ford also plans to introduce high performance models such as Boss, GT, SVT and Shelby shortly after basic model’s introduction. One of these, iconic Shelby GT350, will be launched probably one year after Mustang’s debut, which is scheduled for this December.Original Shelby GT350 was introduced in January 1965. It was designed by legendary race driver, designer and entrepreneur Carroll Shelby. With over 300 hp, it was a true sports car capable both for the race and street drive. It was the first high performance version of Mustang, with 35 horses more than a basic model. Today, 1965 Shelby is one of most iconic pony cars of all time. If we consider that Ford celebrating 50th anniversary of Mustang, 2015 Ford Mustang GT350will have even more heavier task to justify the name of Shelby.
Watch and Listen to the 2015 Ford Mustang GT350/SVT Cobra in Action
While we do not even know what the highest performance version of the 2015 Ford Mustang will be called, a new video that has just surfaced on the internet shows what is most likely the next super-Stang in action on the street – with plenty of examples of the throaty quad exhaust system roaring and purring on public roads.
We don’t know what the successor to the 2014 Shelby GT500 Mustang will be called and while plenty of rumors have been floating around about the high performance trimline for the 2015 Ford Mustang about what it could be called – this video almost certainly shows that mystery Mustang in action. Whether it retains the GT500 name or adopts the Gt350 name or reverts back to the SVT Cobra name that was last used for the “Terminator” Mustang back in 2004, we know that it is going to be more powerful and faster than the standard Mustang GT. One thing that we can most assuredly expect from the 2015 Shelby/SVT Ford Mustang is that it will have a big, loud exhaust system and an exhaust system of that nature is what makes us (and everyone else) believe that the video below shows the next Shelby or SVT Mustang out on the open road.
Best of all, this video of the 2015 Ford Mustang SVT or Shelby model isnt a 15 second clip shot through the closed window of a passing car – this video shows some 3 minutes of the next generation super-Stang in a variety of motoring situations. Most notably, this video offers several short clips of the 2015 Ford Mustang SVT/Shelby model accelerating hard, revving the engine while stopped and cruising around the greater Detroit metro area. At the 1:27 mark, while the cameraman is following one Ford Mustang GT350/SVT Cobra, what appears to be another super-Stang test mule passes in the other direction and that mule has what appears to be a big, bulging hood with slots in the camo that would indicate a hood-mounted air intake (as shown in the screenshot above). There have been rumors that the 2015 Mustang will feature some style of hood scoop and the Mustang mule that passes about a third of the way through the video would lead us to believe that at least one of the 2015 Ford Mustang models will indeed pack a big hood scoop or air intake or some sort.
While the quad exhaust tips would suggest that the 2015 Ford Mustang mule(s) being followed around in this video are some higher performance package than the standard Mustang GT, the fact that this test car is so extremely loud is another clue that this is not an “average” Mustang. This test car seems to be much, much louder than any production Mustang GT but the decibel level seems to be in line with what we have seen (and heard) from the likes of the Shelby GT500 and perhaps the Boss 302 Mustang. Needless to say, any factory built Mustang that sounds as awesome as this one will resonate very well with the high performance consumer market – but even if the next generation high performance Mustang sounded exactly like the current GT, Im sure that it will sell just fine.
The 2015 Ford Mustang GT350 Sounds Like The Devil Himself
At least, that’s what the folks over at Mustang6G say about this heavily disguised pre-production mule caught on video as it blasts around some public roads. I could not agree with their assessment any more. Actually, it’s tricky to know exactly what this thing is. It could be the GT350, the GT500, or something else we don’t know about. It looks to be the same prototype that showed up in photos last week over at Mustang6G. It sounds considerably more insane than the standard V8 GT, so it’s probably a safe bet that it’s some high-powered special edition. Whatever it is, it’s going to be mean as hell. They could call it the Adorable Princess Cupcake Edition, and as long as it sounds that nasty, I’d still pick one up. The 2015 Ford Mustang GT350 and/or GT500 is set to debut soon, but as Ford takes the prototypes onto public roads, it gives the viewing public a chance to see the monsters before they go on sale. And hear them. Because it sounds like its powered by nothing but explosive magic.
Well, technically, every internal combustion engine utilizes explosive power, but YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. In this video sent to us by the guys over at Mustang6G, the engine isn’t even barely at full song, but just accelerating up to normal traffic speeds it sounds like it can do some serious damage to the fabric of space-time. This sleek, low, squat little beast that still claims to be nothing but a mere muscle car, looks like it’s going to be a real stunner once the light bit of camouflage remaining is taken off.
Is This The S550 Mustang GT350/GT500? Or The Rumored Mach 1?
Mustang6g posted spy shots yesterday of what they think are GT350/GT500 test mules at SVT’s workshops. Note the quad-exhaust setup, the brakes with cross-drilled rotors, and the camouflage that’s been altered to accommodate the hood and fender vents. There’s also a shot of the S550’s steering wheel.
