2011 Mustang Details Leaked

Some details have been leaked about the 2011 Ford Mustang.

Customers will be able to order it starting from January 18, 2010, and it will begin production on March 15, 2010.

There will be a California Special variant as well as an SVT Performance package, which will include 19-inch wheels, an RR spoiler, “Over the Top” stripes (Not quite sure what these stripes look like) and a limited slip differential. Other options include a Brembo Brake package, a six-speed automatic transmission and three new 19-inch wheels.

The next Shelby GT500 will continue using the 5.4L V8, this time all-aluminum though.

We’ll hear more details about the car once it’s revealed at the LA Auto Show this December.

EcoBoost V8 Shelby Mustang May Be on the Way

Rumours have been going around that Ford may be developing an EcoBoost V8 Shelby Mustang.

This would be quite interesting to see, as the EcoBoost V6 in the Taurus SHO, with some tuning, could easily put out 600hp. So imagine the radical power an EcoBoost V8 could produce.

If EcoBoost doesn’t mean anything to you, put it this way: a twin-turbo, direct injected V8. The engine modified to use EcoBoost would be the 5.0L Coyote V8.

I’d be interested in seeing this, so long as they don’t just shove the engine into a Mustang and leave the suspension alone. I like my car to handle well, not just go quickly in a straight line.
