Authenticity proves essential in the automotive world - with critics and consumers both demanding proof of every spec, refusing to accept possibilities as facts. Each detail must be examined, verified, and then checked once again (just to be certain).
We wonder, however, if we can make an exception for the 2019 Shelby Mustang GT500 - just this once?
According to Road and Track, an image of the new Shelby GT500 ha been revealed - by a source other than Ford. Much to the confusion (and consternation) of pony-fans, this picture is from an anonymous Instagram user, with no proven connection to either the brand or the platform itself. Because of this, much speculation has been offered about its validity.
If even a percentage of it proves true, however, we’ll be thrilled.
The photo - shared by Road and Track - offers a sleek design, with the Mustang’s silver body silhouetted against a black screen. A dark grille cascades down the front, while a snake emblem coils in the center. Broad dark stripes race up the hood, drawing attention to the angled A-Pillars; and tear-drop style headlamps slot neatly against the fenders. The profile is sleek, lean, and undeniably impressive.
We have our fingers crossed that it’s genuine.
The 2019 Mustang Shelby GT500 will make its official debut later this fall. To learn more about this platform contact us today!
