Images have surfaced from the Ford dealer meeting this week which purportedly show the 2020 Mustang GT500 ahead of its debut.
We have no way of confirming these images are legitimate, but Automotive News reported on Sunday that Ford was holding a conference for its US dealer network sometime this week. They don’t look photoshopped to our eye, though, and the vehicle pictured has similar details to Shelby GT500 prototype vehicles that have been caught testing this year. They were first posted by Instagram user sinister_lifestyle, but are spreading around the social media platform.
The GT500 pictured has the familiar blue and white color scheme, along with a huge grill, massive front intakes, a Mustang GT350-style front splitter and a GT350 R-style rear wing.
Ford previously announced in a tweet that the 2019 Mustang GT500 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this upcoming January. The tweet also indicated the Hellcat and ZL1-rivalling muscle car would have “more than 700 hp projected.” It’s not completely clear what may be in store for the powertrain, but you can definitely expect some sort of forced induction V8 to show up.
