The last time we saw this high performance Mustang prototype it was testing alongside a Camaro ZL1 in Arizona. At the time it was unknown which engine was under the hood as it sped past a group of unsuspecting journalists.
Now, the folks at MotorTrend have a source who has passed along an image taken in secret of what appears to be that same test vehicle (let’s call it a GT500) clearly showing a supercharged V8 under the hood, wrapped in a Shelby GT350 body.
Their source goes on to claim that this is a supercharged Voodoo — in other words, the GT350’s 5.2-liter flat plane crank engine fitted with a supercharger. As MotorTrend notes, the supercharger install looks very clean, almost OEM-like if you will, and has a resemblance to the Ford Performance supercharger kit for the Mustang GT.
We’ll have to wait and see if this possible GT500 (or Boss 429?) will get a supercharged Voodoo, or if as we have heard, it will receive a more conventional supercharged cross-plane version of the 5.2-liter.
