2019 FORD MUSTANG SHELBY GT500 DUAL-CLUTCH AUTOMATIC REVIEW & CHANGES – We’ve listened to a great deal about the approaching Ford Mustang Shelby GT500’s engine, but up to now we’ve only observed unsubstantiated gossips about its transmission. The video beneath doesn’t fix that puzzle, though it does seem to be resistant the GT500 will change equipment quickly. Whether or not that’s via a dual-clutch or conventional torque converter automatic is up for discussion.
The video, published in the week by the people at fanatic online community Mustang6G, displays a hidden Mustang testing on the street. The wingless prototype seems a good deal like the one we spotted last four weeks, but in this video, we can easily listen to it operating. The shooter (pro spy wedding photographer Brian Williams) taken the car consuming off from an end several occasions, and each time the transmission upshifts by way of second and 3rd equipment in a short time-way too swift to be a manual. The gearbox’s speed to go into an increased products tells us of the 10-speed automatic at present supplied on the regular Ford Mustang.
Chevrolet presently utilizes a version of that transmission in the 650-hp Camaro ZL1, so that we be aware of it are prepared for track duty. Making use of the 10-speed on the GT500 would also almost certainly lessen Ford’s development expenses, but the gossip we’ve observed for the earlier several weeks has become that Ford will use a seven-speed dual-clutch like the Getrag unit located in the Ford GT. Possibly transmission can be capable of the fast changes we notice in this video, so it’s tough to explain to which one it is.
But although the GT500’s transmission remains to be a puzzle, we all know a little more about the relaxation of the car. Thanks to a couple of spills, it’s possibly a safe wager that the GT500 will pack a supercharged version of the GT350’s flat-aircraft-crank 5.2-liter V-8. And thanks to Ford, we understand the car will push out more than 700 hp. The GT500 is likely to make its formal debut in 2019, so there’s lots of time for additional information to drip out. In the meantime, check out the video under and attract your personal a conclusion on the Shelby GT500’s swift-switching transmission.
