Mustang GT500

This supposedly leaked document suggests the GT500 is more of a buffalo than a Mustang.

Re: Mustang GT500

Impressive power from just the 5.2L V8 in supercharged form. What did you mean by 'buffalo'? Should be a matter of time before its official reveal.

Edited: Think you were referring to weight. 4,200+ pounds. Yikes. What's interesting is the thread at Mustang6G, that the 'leaked' photo is credited to, with the people posting comments about the suspicions of the timing of leak among other things. Reading through the 4-page thread now and one guy thinks the Shelby GT500 may be revealed at the Monterey Car Week in California.

So fascinated with Ford's EcoBoost technology!!!

I really hope that weight isnt accurate, nobody asked for a Ford Challenger. Just means the ZL1 will likely crush it on a road course. GLOOM AND DOOM.

Re: Mustang GT500

If that 4225lb curb weight is true, the upcoming GT500 must pack a 465lb supercharger!
Ok, even if you factor in a 10-speed automatic, it still shouldn't weigh that much.

A GT350 has a curb weight of 3760lbs (3662lbs for the GT350R)

Based on the leaked info, the weight difference between the upcoming GT500 and GT350 is 2lbs greater than the 463lb dry weight of a Ducati Diavel.
