This legendary name will be once again reserved for the most powerful and fastest version of Mustang. This model is present for almost fifty years, and was always a top offer when it comes to this legendary pony car. This time, we are going to see the latest version of it, which will come based on the newest, sixth generation of Mustang, which came two years ago. New model is expected to come as 2018 Mustang Shelby GT500, probably somewhere next year. New model will probably come with completely new engine, featuring more power than ever, and also with many other unique characteristics.
2018 Mustang Shelby GT500 engine
Since performances are the most important part of this car, it seems logical to talk about engine first. According to some sources, Ford is testing a completely new engine, which is expected to have its premiere in this model. The 2018 Mustang Shelby GT500 is expected to come with completely new 5.0 liter V8 EcoBoost engine, which will be backed up with two turbochargers. This whole configuration is expected to provide a huge amount of power. Predictions are that 2018 Shelby GT500 will have over 700 horsepower, which is pretty much expected, since some rivals already reached and passed this barrier.
2018 Mustang Shelby GT500 new configuration?
There is also another possible scenario. According to some more radical reports, we will see completely new configuration, not only that, but also complete new philosophy. The 2018 Mustang Shelby GT500 will come with turbocharger V6 engine, according to these reports, which will make this car look more like Nissan GT-R, that some true pony. However, we doubt that company will leave the roots of one of the most iconic cars of all time. So, this variant doesn’t seems so likely, according to our opinion.

We doubt that company will go for some unnecessary experiments. We will see things like new bumpers, new wheels, modified grille and larger air intakes. Maybe other tweaks that will accentuate car’s sporty character. When it is about interior, 2018 Mustang Shelby GT500 will also come with some unique details. New interior has sports seats, plenty of “Shelby” and “GT500” signs all over the cabin etc.
