    Cool 2010 Shelby GT500: Almost Completely Undisguised!

    We caught shots of the new snake-bit Mustang playing in Royal Oak today outside of Metro Detroit:

    I like the hood. Tail lights could use a little more Bling, maybe Sequential like the 69 Cougar.

    Rumor has it that the turn signal illuminates the tail lamps sequentially from the inside light to the outside light. <--- /// \\\ --->

    I though sequential lights were illegal from the OEM?

    The ice in the grill make it look like it has teeth. It's a shame Ford doesn't have a big cube all aluminum OHV to stuff under that supercharger to help the poor weight balance and price. That car would be incredible if they did.

    A larger displacement pushrod engine might have been out of the question but Ford certainly could have used an aluminum block. It isn't as if they haven't done it before.

    That's true but wasn't that only done with the GT supercar. I thought all the other factory supercharged vehicles all had iron blocks, which if true, would help the weight balance but not the price.

    there has been a small discussion at blueovalforums if the new GT500 has IRS or the regular axle

    Re: 2010 Shelby GT500: Almost Completely Undisguised!

    GT500 customers, overwhelmingly, either want a solid axle or don't care.

    My suspicion is that the GT500 will have the carryover engine. 500hp isn't exactly half bad, and at that point, you're reaching the limits of usable power for this car.

    I also expect SVT's next project to be a highly-tuned version of the upcoming EcoBoost V6 Mustang, which will be more of a perfectly-balanced precision road racer than the big bruiser GT500.

    Also, anyone care to explain to me what car costs in the low $40,000 range, with that kind of performance?

    I guess it depends on what part of performance you are talking about but I'm pretty sure the base Vette could hang plenty good.
