2016 Ford Mustang GT350 (SVT) Spy Shots And Video

Follow Nelson

The 2015 Ford Mustang made its hotly anticipated debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, but since then has largely stayed off the radar as it awaits its start of production and rubber-burning arrival on America's streets. In addition to the base and GT models, there will be a new Mustang EcoBoost powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. But the Mustang EcoBoost isn't the only new addition—there will be higher-performance versions wearing special badges, too.

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.

Below is a video from Mustang6G which shows the prototype at the 'Ring. A second video from YouTube user UniqueTV shows an earlier prototype and gives us a few brief glimpses into the interior—where what look to be Recaro seats can be found.

The Mustang community has been excited about the potential for even hotter Mustang since the reveal of the 2015 model, with credible (if quick) renders of what they might look like in finished form hitting Instagram before the paint on the show cars had dried. We'll keep you posted on details, specs, and more as the next-generation upgrades for the 2015 Ford Mustang develop, so check back often.
