Range-topping Stang looks to be quite a handful.
Ford isn’t messing around when it comes to testing the 2016 Ford Mustang SVT. These spy shots reveal a prototype being pushed to the limits at the Nurburgring, causing it to spin out and kick up some grass at the exit of the carousel. We’re calling the range-topping Stang the SVT, but it may well arrive badged as the Shelby GT350, GT500, or even wearing the fabled Cobra moniker. The powertrain is also still a mystery.
Smart money is on a more potent version of the current GT500’s 5.8-liter supercharged V8. But don’t rule out a forced-induction 5.0-liter Coyote V8 or a 5.2-liter Coyote V8 just yet. While losing the back end, the SVT driver gave us the chance to check out the aggressive rear valance and understated trunk lid spoiler. Sideways shots reveal its brig brakes, cross-drilled rotors and large calipers.
