We just recently showed you images of what may very well be the next Shelby GT500 Mustang. Now, we've received a video from one of our spy photographers of another prototype that appears to be a Shelby of some sort. The video is low quality, and the sound is even worse, but one thing is certain, it's still V8-powered. The exhaust note also sounds rather like that of the flat-plane crank V8 in the current GT350.

What we can't hear are any forced induction noises coming from the car. There isn't any kind of whistle or hiss from a turbocharger, nor the whine of a roots-style supercharger. Without hearing either noise, it's hard to say whether this is the next GT500, or perhaps it's an updated GT350. It would seem that the GT500 would have some kind of forced induction to ensure maximum horsepower, especially since it would be positioned against the Challenger Hellcat and Camaro ZL1.

Our spy photographer also snapped some photos of the car, and there are a few interesting details compared with the last car we saw. We can see through the wheel covers a bit this time, and can see it has five-spoke wheels. The word "forged" is also molded into the rim. Up front, the leading edge of the grille looks lower and more forward-leaning than we've seen before. The fenders, too, are missing holes in the camouflage for the vents we've seen on other prototypes and the current GT350.
