Ford Mustang to get 412hp 5.0-liter V8

As it is often the case these days, a lot of details about upcoming cars are released via the internet (Facebook, MySpace or any other site is a possible location for insiders to post their information). So, thanks to one of these insiders, we can now reveal that the 2011 Mustang GT will get a massive 5.0-liter V8. This massive engine will get massive power as well – 412 horsepower in fact. Compared to other new muscle cars that’s actually pretty good. Even tough European engineers can squeeze much more power from such an engine, the upcoming Mustang V8 has a decent amount of bhp for a muscle car. The new engine produces 390 pound-feet of torque at 6.5000 RPM. Fuel economy shouldn’t be bad either, amazingly, you should get about 25 MPG. That is ok for such a big monster. You can link the engine to either an automatic or a 6-speed manual gearbox.

That’s where our information ends right now, until Ford releases more info, or another insider feels the need to post upcoming modifications on the internet, we cannot offer more details.
