Our combined knowledge of the 2015 Ford Mustang continues to deepen, as spy shooters have begun to compile video and audio of the upcoming sixth-generation car.

Case in point is this latest series of video clips, which not only gives us a great vantage point of the Mustang in motion, but also allows us to hear the Ford V8 engine and exhaust. After perusing the aural delights of this short video, which, admittedly, doesn't catch the Mustang GT at full song, we can at least say that the throaty exhaust isn't disappointing.

Chances are good that the 2015 Mustang GT will debut with some version of the current (and excellent) Coyote 5.0-liter V8 engine, though we're unclear as to whether or not the motor has been massaged for its next-gen debut, or what may have been done to exhaust plumbing. At this point, we're just happy to hear the pony run. Scroll below to hear for yourself.

      Well, we can't see much, but it appears as though it will still have that recognizable V8 Mustang exhaust note. It's what drew me the car at a young age, listening to all of those 5.0s out raising hell in the early 90s. Anyone who is afraid that the Mustang might lose its "American-ness", and I was one of them not too long ago, should watch this video. LIstening to that test mule is a very hopeful sign that that is not the case.

        Yea, they were 225HP and sounded meaner than anything else! Crazy.

          It was all about the torque (290 lb-ft at just off idle), because 95% of the engine was designed for truck use. They were all done by 5500 rpm, even the 90-93 engines. That's why such simple mods made such ridiculously large power gains. an intake manifold will get you +40 RWHP with no tuning. A $200 cam will get you +40-50 RWHP. Heads can be worth as much as 60-100 rwhp. Most stock 87-93 5.0s dyno'd right at 190 whp stock. Put $3000 of a heads / cam / intake package and full intake / exhaust on them and they made an easy 300-350 rwhp.

          No doubt. In hindsight, it was a pretty sad time for all cars power and quality wise. Im glad the Mustang did what it did. I was one with an 88 LX 5.0. A few mods and there was nothing that ran with it then.

      Wow. That sounds really nice. I was hoping for a little deeper, but I'm okay with this. And btw, I'm digging the new solid tail lights. Appear they are LED, just like the current, but that's not a surprise.

      Keep in mind, mule vehicle exhaust is usually cobbled together out of the parts bin. It really isn't the best thing to use to gauge what the car will truly end up sounding like. However, I hope it sounds pretty damn close to this.

          Correction, pilot-production/pre-production are still somewhat testable/programmable, but can no longer add or refine new technologies or mechanicals, as the entire development program is pretty much frozen by then.

          Tomaytoes, tomahtoes. Same statement applies whether it's a mule or pre-production vehicle.

      Ford is working with the Mustang Club of America for a huge 50th Birthday Celebration in April 2014. There are two locations. Charlotte NC, and Vegas. The timing is to coincide with the original NY Worlds Fair reveal of the 1964 1/2 Mustang, so it's a pretty darn good bet that the 2014 1/2 50th Anniversary Mustang will be at the party, maybe for it's first reveal. Watch for thousands of Mustangs caravaning from all over North America to this celebration.

      Fairlane business park? I'm in Dearborn, might have to go Mustang hunting now.

      Nice sound. A Mustang without a V8 would be like a Mustang without wheels.

      I still can't help but laugh when I see a grown man in one of those boy-racer all done-up special edition Mustangs. They look ridiculous. I guess we're going to have to endure that once again with this car.

        mikemaj82 says this as he gets into his 2010 Camry in his peach colored shirt he got as a gift from his mother inlaw and secretly scrolls to his Justin Bieber CD. Wouldn't want to offend anyone or draw any attention to your pathetic life, now would you. Same guy lets his wife make every decision - he can't handle "that stuff".

        When you\'re a grown man you\'ll understand you can happily drive anything you want regardless of some idiots stereotyped bias against your vehicle.

          Just like the Mustang, she had a solid rear end.

        Yes, grown men should know they belong in Corvette's with all the other middle-aged somethings. Or better yet, fall in line and get an S5 or M3.

      That sounds nasty! I really can't tell you that last time I've been so excited for a car reveal!!

        I have a feeling Ford is going to keep this under wraps until NAIAS '14 or '15. This vehicle is too important to the nameplate, and I think everyone learned a lesson with the long gap between design reveal and production on the Camaro.

          I doubt it'll be NAIAS. The NY Auto show happens to fall on the 50th anniversary of the original unveiling of Mustang at the World's Fair - in NYC. Do you really think that Ford won't play up on that?

          @EXP it's already been confirmed for 2014 NAIAS as a 2015 model.. right next to the new F150. Ford would be stupid to do anything else.

          @zakgee It didn't help. When your design is out and openly running around before the public can purchase it, it starts to lose its buzz.

      She sounds pretty. I'm most looking forward to hearing how much she weighs. Hopefully under 3500 lbs. The showdown with the M4 coupe in a few years should be exciting.

          Embarrassing for the M4?
