Spied: Ford Mustang SVT Goes Off Track at the 'Ring
Spy photographers spotted the 2016 Ford Mustang SVT prototype stretching its legs at the Nürburgring, and it looks like it may have been having a little too much fun as it was snapped whipping its tail out and going off track.
Looking as though it's wearing a little less camouflage than the last prototype we saw, the Mustang SVT mule gave us several good shots of its rear when it spun out exiting a corner. Even though it looks to have lost a bit of camo, nothing on its behind looks significantly different than the last tester we spotted. Styling cues we've seen before include the aggressive rear valance and subtle trunklid spoiler. Since the only view we get of its front side is when it starts to get sideways, it's a little hard to tell what's going on underneath the camouflage, though we can still see that it has a meaner-looking front grille and lower front air dam. We also get a good view of its big brakes with cross-drilled rotors and large calipers.
We don't know too much about the Ford Mustang SVT yet, including whether it'll be badged as an SVT, Shelby GT350, or Shelby GT500. We wouldn't be surprised to see a Cobra badge, either. We've also heard that a more powerful version of the last Shelby GT500's supercharged 5.8-liter V-8, a forced induction (supercharged or EcoBoost) 5.0-liter Coyote V-8, or a 5.2-liter Coyote V-8 could be found underneath the hood when the car is finally revealed.
