It's likely the new 10-speed automatic found in the F-150 Raptor

The Ford Shelby GT500 is coming soon, and its 700 horsepower V8 should give the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and Chevy Camaro ZL1 a run for their money. Details beyond a vague horsepower rating remain scarce, but we do have a few batches of spy photos to pull from.

We get a look at the car's interior

The hottest factory Ford Mustang ever is coming soon. The Shelby GT500 has had both official teasers and a few sets of spy shots, but today we get a look at the car's interior and a short drive-by video. The big news here is that the 700-plus horsepower V8 will be mated to a manual transmission, good news for those looking for an alternative to the manual transmission in the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.

The car will have more than 700 horsepower

We know the Ford Shelby GT500 is coming. We don't have many details, but the unexpected teaser we got back in January did say the car will have more than 700 horsepower. It seems the Dodge Challenger Hellcat and Chevy Camaro ZL1 have some competition on the way. Everything we've seen until now has been veiled, but this new batch of spy photos gives us our best look yet at the hottest Ford Mustang.

The old saying goes that if you can't do the time, don't do the crime. But being a criminal can involve more than just taking a trip to the big house; it can also mean losing possessions purchased from any ill-gotten gains. Still, one man's loss is another's gain, and if you're in Lodi, NJ, on September 12, you stand the chance to buy some of the ultimate muscle cars from the US Marshals in what is being gruesomely nicknamed the Blood Muscle auction.

We love a good barn find here at Autoblog. We like that there's a palpable excitement and sense of mystery surrounding barn finds. Each case has its own uniqueness to it, and this latest discovery is no different: an unrestored, one-owner 1969 Shelby GT500 with just 8,531 miles on it.
