***UPDATE*** For full details and photos of the 2011 Mustang GT see here ***UPDATE***
Along with two previous broken embargoes on details surrounding the details of the 2011 Mustang GT, we now have the first broken embargo of photos related to the car. As you can see, the 5.0-liter engine is for real and it looks pretty schnazzy too, with a nice engine cover that still shows plenty of V8 metal.
As has already been leaked out, the 2011 Mustang GT’s new 5.0-liter motor makes 412-hp at 6500 rpm and an impressive 390 ft-lbs of torque. Owners will be able to choose from either a 6-speed manual of a 6-speed automatic transmission, helping the 5.0-liter motor to get 25 mpg on the highway.
The new 5.0-liter engine is an all aluminum unit with four valves per cylinder and independent variable valve timing on both the intake and exhaust ports. There are also specially tuned headers and a forged steel crankshaft.
Along with what’s new under the hood, the exterior of the 5.0 is mostly unchanged except for some nice retro “5.0” badges on the fenders. The wheels also appear to be a new design.
The official embargo date is still set for the 28th at 12:01 a.m.and unless more info is (yet again) spilled prematurely, we’ll have even more to tell you then.
