2012 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

Submitted by on December 31, 2011 – 10:30 amNo Comment

The 5,500 units of the 2011 Shelby GT500 are already sold out, so Mustang lovers best just move on to the next offering from the American automaker; it’s time to start talking about the 2012 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. We may not have any official details on it just yet, but the power of the Internet, and an untrustworthy auto employee, strike again with a leaked document revealing details on the 2012 model’s ordering guide. The 2012 Ford Mustang GT500 will probably still sell out just as quickly as the 2011 model did.

The Shelby GT500 is distinguished from the other Mustangs in the line-up by a more aggressive exterior look with a signature coiled Cobra badge on the front grille and front fenders. It also separates itself with a unique aluminum power dome hood with functional heat extractors and unique Shelby front and rear fascias, rear diffuser, and decklid spoiler. The interior gets leather sport buckets w/racing stripes coordinated to the exterior stripes and Alcantara Suede accents. A new feature for the 2012 model year will be the new sun visor that features illuminated dual vanity mirrors.

Two new packages are added to the Mustang’s list of options. The $3,995 SVT Performance Package includes upgraded, premium painted forged aluminum wheels that are 19?x9.5 in the front and 20?x9.5? in the rear.

The 2012 Shelby GT500 will feature the same engine as the 2011 model year: an all-new aluminum-block 5.4-liter supercharged V-8 engine, which produces 550 horsepower and 510 ft.-lb. of torque. This engine weighs 102 pounds less than the old motor.

The Shelby GT500 takes on models like the BMW M3, the Chevrolet Corvette, and the Dodge Viper SRT10. The coupe version is priced at $58,400 and the convertible at $67,050. As for the Corvette, the coupe is priced at $48,950 and the convertible at $53,600.

The 2012 Shelby GT500 will be offered in both coupe and convertible version, with prices starting from $49,495 and $54,495 respectively.
