Wish they would have gotten a sound clip of it, that would have laid to rest the speculation as to whats under the hood. With the bulged hood it almost leads me to think its supercharged, but still bets are on a twin turbo 5.0 with around 650-675hp

So as a potential clue on engine, the coyote upgrade includes DI, which fits nicely into the acronym GTDI.

Just sayin

And as for the drivetrain, how about the letter A which fits nicely into the acronym AWD??

AWD means no more burnouts, or drifting. That's half the fun of driving cars like this.

Not so sure I want to see that, just to slightly increase acceleration. Let's face it, this car will hook up and go pretty good without it.

I dont ever see the Mustang gaining AWD, maybe the LincStang Regardless my hope is that this GT500 isnt just about stupid amounts of power and can put it to the ground a lot better than the last ones. Also hopefully more emphasis on handling for those that want that.

Sure, but look at the power to weight.

Mustang would need about 900hp

Ford Focus RS
Weight: 3459 lb
Power: 350 hp

9.8 lb per horsepower

Ford Mustang Shelby GT350/GT350R
Weight: 3796/3710 lb
Power: 526 hp

7.21/7.05 lb per horsepower


The standard GT350 already has a significantly better lb/hp ratio than the Focus RS.
