The 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 / GT500 has been spied wearing less camouflage than ever before.

The 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 / GT500 has been spied wearing less camouflage than ever before.

Looking virtually identical to the Mustang GT, the high-performance variant is distinguished by a hood scoop and a new four-tailpipe exhaust system. Our spy photographer also says the prototype could be equipped with ventilated front fenders but the camouflage makes it hard to be certain.

There's no word on what will power the car but previous reports have indicated it could eschew the supercharged 5.8-liter V8 - that develops 662 bhp (494 kW) and 631 lb-ft (854 Nm) of torque - for a new engine that is derived from the 5.0-liter V8 that resides in the Mustang GT. Little is known about the rumored engine but it could produce "substantially more" than 450 bhp (335 kW).
