Possible Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang Mule Photographed: Spy Shots

Last week, some sneaky photographs surfaced on website, containing what could possibly be a Shelby GT500 Mustang test mule. The car was spotted in an unidentified garage, wearing plenty of camo and cladding at the front end, and rocking a massive wing at the rear.

You can check out the photographs of this suspected Shelby GT500 yourself over at Mustang6G.

What really sets this spied test mule apart from a factory car, beside the brazen rear wing, is the front fender vents/louvers. Those vents help to reduce air pressure underneath the fender, thereby increasing downforce at the front end of the car. It’s also riding on some black-painted 9-spoke wheels that look approximately like the CR-9 model made by Carbon Revolution – the company that supplies the factory carbon-fiber wheels worn by the Shelby GT350R Mustang.

Granted, we still don’t have confirmation that a Shelby GT500 Mustang is even on the way, although we have heard some juicy rumors with regard to powerplants – namely, that a supercharged V8 will serve as the “basic” engine, while a twin-turbo V8 will be available on a higher-spec “GT500KR” model.

We can’t wait to learn more about the anticipated Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang. Stay tuned.
