Ford hasn’t released details surrounding the 2011 GT500, but a user on the enthusiast forum ModularFords.com has uploaded what appears to be the order form for next year’s Shelby.
If accurate, the next iteration of Ford’s baddest Mustang will feature electric power steering, standard HID headlamps, Ford’s safety-minded MyKey, and an aluminum-block 5.4-liter supercharged V-8 as standard equipment. Currently, the 2010 GT500 uses a similar engine, but with an iron block mated with aluminum heads.
Power ratings for the revised engine are still unknown, but it’s a safe bet it will produce at least the same 540 hp as the current supercharged 5.4-liter. Performance junkies will likely spring for an optional SVT performance pack, which claims to add a 3.73 limited-slip rear axle, staggered forged wheels (19-inchers in front, 20-inch rims in back), unique suspension tuning and dampers, a new shift knob, and a spoiler with a Gurney flap.
Per the leaked document, a convertible GT500 will be available, and other options are to include a glass roof, along with Shaker 500 and 1000 sound systems. We'll report more details as they develop.
