A partly camouflaged Ford Shelby GT350 was caught testing in the US. On closer inspection, the covered fascia depicted design lines that point towards a more powerful version in the works.
From the picture, it looks like Ford may now be developing a more potent GT500. For one, the camouflage is only in the front, and hiding beneath it are more aggressive lines than what’s on the GT350 series. In addition to these design cues are a larger spoiler, bigger air-intakes and the longer bonnet, which all could mean that there is a more powerful motor under the hood. This test car also rides on tyres that are superior to the ones seen on the GT350.
What also adds up to the equation is the sticker that was seen on the test car’s windscreen that had a code similar to other test cars that are usually equipped with a turbocharged powerplant. If this is true, then the rumours of the next GT500 to make in excess of 750bhp should make sense, especially with the use of a turbocharged engine. More on this in the days to come.
