We are still waiting for official confirmation of an upcoming GT350 Mustang, or other SVT variant from Ford. Previous rumors have all but confirmed a GT350 or SVT package is coming, but Ford has been silent as to if it even exists.
Spy videos are everywhere, and this latest one is no exception. Wil Morgan, a friend of ours, spotted these two camo-wrapped Mustangs trolling around Long Beach while out to lunch. A car guy himself, Morgan heard the unmistakable sound of tuned V8 exhaust, and started looking for the source. Seeing two camo-wrapped Mustangs go by (the tail lights gave it away) he hopped in his own car and pursued the cars.
When they pulled into a gas station, Morgan followed and pretended to be buying gas himself. The driver of one of the cars asked that they not video him putting gas in the car, which Morgan kindly obliged. That driver did point out that he was welcome to video the other car in a nearby parking lot. We were hoping for a little mischievous fun, maybe a line lock test or some doughnuts, but the driver seemed to know he was being filmed and played it cool. Morgan waited near the gas station for the cars to leave and caught them on his camera driving by, full exhaust note and all.
Why is this video important? With the Mustang order bank now open, and the world knowing what the V6, EcoBoost, GT, and 50th anniversary look like, we have to wonder why all the camo on these cars? It has to be hiding something, and we suspect this is the upcoming SVT model, quite likely the GT350 out testing. Recent rumors have suggested extensive use of carbon fiber to drop the weight of those cars even more, and could be part of why there’s so much secrecy around them however, we’ve seen nothing other than rumors to suggest this.. There’s also the obvious hood scoop and vents in the front fender. Whatever model they are, we can’t wait for Ford to officially pull the wraps off and send us for a test drive.
