American multinational car maker ‘Ford’ is planning to launch its all-new Mustang Shelby GT500 next year, as according to Joe Hinrichs, Ford president for Global Operations.
Earlier Ford was making its GT500 Super Snake before 2014 and after that, the product was stopped under manufacturing. The car will re-enter Ford’s lineup for the first time.

With 700-plus horsepower the model will be exactly double powerful than the original 1967 Mustang. The Dearborn automaker said the GT500 will be the “pinnacle of Mustang performance and highlights the innovation, ingenuity, and passion of Ford Performance.”
With this much powerful engine, Ford is os targeting to come parallel with the world’s fastest quarter-mile production vehicle SRT Demon which boasts 840-horsepower. Ford didn’t release any finalized photographs or videos of GT500 rather the announcement was just made at a part of the Detroit Auto Show on Monday night.
The GT500 was the sixth product which Ford teased or showcased at the auto show of 2018.
