Spy Shots—Latest Updates on 2013 Mustang GT500 Convertible

GT500 Spy Photos

Last month, Brenda Priddy's team of spy shooters spotted the Mustang GT500 in mule guise on the Nürburgring testing something very hot under the hood. Those images revealed very few visible changes to the body.

Judging by the latest shots from the team, Priddy says that, given the camouflage, it's safe to say Ford has reached the production prototype phase of development on the new 'Stang.

Under the hood, an updated V8 pumping out 600+ hp is the likely powerhouse being prepared to combat the Chevy Camaro ZL1. Now that Priddy has heard the new motor's full throat during testing, she is certain it will remain supercharged. However, past those details, information on the new powerplant are still a little murky.

Cosmetically, the photos here show that the GT500 will get some pretty significant updates, including a new front fascia, redesigned grille, updated headlamps and even a new hood. Around back, there should be a new rear bumper and rear fascia spoiler. Priddy says that we can also see a new detail for the GT500: a double-barrel exhaust on each side instead of the dual exhaust on the current GT500 model.

The team will deliver more details as they become available.
