Shelby American is sending out the fifth-generation Mustang with a new special edition upgrade package for owners of the Shelby GT500. Only 50 examples are being offered, with pricing for the upgrade package starting at $44,995.

More rumors have emerged about a new Ford GT supercar. The latest info suggests we’ll see a production version at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show and a racing version lining up on the grid in 2016.

Google has revealed a new prototype version of its planned autonomous car (the previous version was only a mock-up). Testing on a private track will soon be underway and if all goes to plan we should see public road trials commence early next year.

You’ll find all of this and more in today’s car news right here at Motor Authority.
