2011 Ford Mustang GT – First Leaked Pictures of the New 5.0 Liter V8
There has been a quiet momentum building up to the release of the new 2011 Ford Mustang GT. An “embargo release” (age old publishing practice of trickling out official secrets) last week gave us word on the engine specs, which are impressive. An all new 5.0-liter V8 putting out 412 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque will be the powerplant. And now we have some initial images of the new pony car.
The profile shot leads us to believe that this car is much more demur and tame than what we know lies beneath the bonnet. The 5.0 badging is a nice touch, which looks to be done in the same font and style as the original, and is found on the front quarter panels, fenders and engine from what we can tell. Speaking of the engine, Ford was thoughtful enough to buck the current trend and leave the massive V8 uncovered for us all to gawk at whenever exposed. We look forward to the official release of the 2011 Mustang GT and will have full details at that time.
