Having unveiled the all-new 2015 Mustang to the world months ago, Ford is hard at work on the range-topping flagship model, whose name is still unconfirmed, but is expected to be GT350. The upcoming Mustang flagship was recently caught undergoing testing, and despite Ford’s attempts to hide the beast with heavy camouflage applied all over the test model, there’s no mistaking the wild pony for anything else than the mightiest of Mustangs.
A few indicators that we’re looking at a powerful pony begin in the front, with a massive hood bulge along with the vent in front of it. What lies under the hood is still somewhat of a mystery, but whatever it is, it’s hungry for air thanks to what look to be vents on each side of the front fenders. The camo also seems to feature large air intakes in the lower fascia, probably for additional brake cooling, with the space just aft of the front wheels containing a vent that likely serves as the exit point for the brake cooling ducts. All four wheels and the exhaust out back are camouflaged so heavily that we can’t even make out the design of wheels, nor how many tips the mufflers have.
Luckily, the interior isn’t as disguised as the body, revealing a 6,500 RPM redline, with what could be a 7,000 RPM over-rev feature. Meanwhile, the test vehicle’s racing-purpose Recaro seats seem to have plenty of support for those body-tossing track days.
The Motrolix Take
Whether it ends up being called Mustang GT350, Mach 1, or something else, this pony has all the makings of a beast (as does its engine note). We can’t wait to check out the spec sheet, as well as to see, feel, and drive the real thing, which will likely be unveiled sometime in 2015, and begin arriving to dealers shortly thereafter.
