Chevrolet certainly can’t expect Ford to sit idly by while it romps around with the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE and Camaro ZL1. New spy photos may show the upcoming Shelby GT500 cloaked as can be, according to Ford Authority.
The prototype is most definitely a Mustang, but it’s difficult to make out any real details on the car. Ford has gone through the trouble of even scrubbing the most of the marking on the tires’ sidewall. Spy photographers did manage to read the front tire’s size, which measured 305/30R20. That’s relevant because the Shelby GT350 wears 19-inch wheels at the front and rear.
So, about the power. To strike back at the Camaro ZL1’s 650 horsepower, it’s rumored the next GT500 will push over 700 hp either from a twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8 or a supercharged 5.2-liter Voodoo V8 engine. Who knows if it will touch the Dodge Challenger Demon’s 840 hp rating, though. Ford seems more keen on taking on the Camaro than Dodge’s near one-trick
pony muscle car.
We’ll have to wait and see how Ford returns fire after the Camaro ZL1’s stupendous reveal.
