Spy photographers are just about everywhere nowadays, catching future vehicles baring their goodies. The latest spy shots to hit the web are of a Shelby GT500 that has been spotted testing on the Nurburgring track, insinuating that the 2014 model may actually make it on the global market for the first time. Its most notable feature is the larger cores giving way to what could be a forced induction or twin turbo setup.

Whichever power pumper it is will be put in with Ford’s new 5.0-liter twin-cam V8 which will improve performance, fuel consumption, and emissions making it a triple threat on the market. Other engines will also be available for the Mustang, starting from a 2.5 liter 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine and ending at the twin-turbo V8. Power for the updated muscle car has not been revealed, but expect it to carry more than the 510 figure in the current GT500. We’re guessing somewhere in the 600 HP range.

As far as looks go, Ford is still keeping those changes under wraps. The model featured in the spy shots is actually carrying the Mustang’s existing body while testing the new inner workings of the vehicle. The new model will actually be built on a totally new platform with an independent rear suspension.

Expect the new GT500 to be revealed sometime in 2013.

If you ask me, I would say that this one really has a pretty aggressive nose, let’s just hope that it is also the same for the whole car. When will they release new photos anyway?

Great innovation here for Shelby. I am excited to see this one on the future race or exhibits. I’ve been wondering what are those special features will they include.

I’m glad that Ford is modifying the looks of Shelby. I can’t wait for its official release on 2013. I hope there be no delays in the production and testing.

It’s really a good thing to see that Ford is able to keep up with Chevrolet in the muscle car race. I would say that I actually love both the Mustang and the Camaro, and it’s a good thing that they are still churning out these rides.

One thing that I am really crossing my fingers for on this one is that they would work on the performance. I am pretty ok with sticking with the old engine, but only if they would tweak it.

This Ford mustang Shelby is a really great and wonderful can if they plan to release it, I think it will be one of the most favorable car ever.

Well, since this is a Mustang Shelby, I am pretty sure that it is going to bee awesome in the looks department. However, I do hope that they had worked on the performance to make it more complete.

Oh come on! I bet this teaser car would be similar with the traditional look of the Mustang and nothing stunning to expect from this car. I think it’s better that we lower our expectation a little bit!

This one is just a teaser, but I am pretty sure how the car is going to look like, and I tell you that it will definitely be amazing. That front grille alone looks aggressive.
