Ahead of its release, on Monday at the Detroit Motor Show, Autoblog‘s spy photographers have caught the Ford Shelby GT500 Convertible undisguised on the road. The soft-top gets the same visual updates as its coupe brother.
The Shelby GT500 Mustang comes with a brand new supercharged 5.8 liter V8 engine producing up to 650hp together with 600 pound-feet of torque. Quite amazing figures when we remind you that its direct competitor, the Camaro ZL1, comes with only 580 horses under the hood. It also gets a six-speed dual-clutch manual transmission. We expect that the convertible version will share the same vital statistics.
