700bhp-plus Shelby Mustang GT500 to arrive in 2019

700bhp-plus Shelby Mustang GT500 to arrive in 2019

The 2019 Ford Shelby GT500 is expected to make its formal debut early next year.

Ford, the American automaker has revealed the latest version of the popular Mustang Bullitt at the 2018 Detroit Motor Show. Ford claimed that it will be their most powerful GT500 (and Ford model) to date and will have a projected output rating of more than 700 PS. That Mustang featured a 5.8-liter supercharged V8 with 662 horsepower and 631 lb. -ft. of torque, and boasted a top speed of 200 miles per hour. The shifter for the manual gearbox is topped by a knob in the form of a white cue ball, just like the original.

Yet there's no such thing as a flawless product, and the new, 2019 Bullitt Mustang has a handful of (admittedly small) issues that, we feel, detract from its excellence. It will also be equipped with new track-tailored technologies, as well as track-tuned styling. On the other hand, it mimics the original in foregoing badging, spoilers and decorative strips.

Steve McQueen graduated from Boys Republic in 1946 before becoming a successful actor starring in the movie "Bullitt", about troubled police detective Frank Bullitt, who also "made it". And if the dark green colour isn't your thing, well, you can always opt for black. However, as Ford also says the "all new Mustang Shelby GT500 to attack tracks, drag strips in 2019", it might be more of a stripped-down track day vehicle than a comfortable and well-equipped daily driver as the Hellcats invariably are. The new Mustang Bullitt will go to market in summer 2018.

Ford released a video Monday teasing the forthcoming Shelby GT500, which the American automaker expects to produce at least 700 horsepower from its supercharged V-8, making it the "Blue Oval's" most powerful road-legal production auto ever.
