One of these has been spotted in prototype form yet again, this time testing at Germany’s Nürburgring, something previous generations of the Mustang rarely did. It’s not clear where in the hierarchy of Mustang models this one will sit, but it is likely to be somewhere between the previous-generation Mustang’s Boss 302 and Shelby GT500 models.
It’s possible Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] will opt for the GT350 badge, but we’ve also heard that Ford may go with one of its historic names such as Cobra or even Mach 1. Either way, Ford is likely to drop the Shelby appellation from the car to highlight that this model is being developed by Ford’s own SVT team.
From the spy shots, we can see that the new car has a wider track than the stock 2015 Mustang, hinting at increased power output. A V-8 is planned, though it’s not clear if there will be any forced induction added. Other details include vents in the front fenders, a front lip spoiler, quad-tip exhaust tips, a rear diffuser, and carbon ceramic brake discs.
