As I wrote about earlier, the muscle car wars are stronger than ever.
Although there's much pressure to produce vehicles with low C02 emissions and high mpg figures, it seems that there's still room for 700 horsepower V8s and burnouts.
Now that the 2015 Dodge Challenger has debuted with its 707 horsepower V8, we can only imagine where this war will go — up. Given that we've seen all Chevrolet's got to give with the likes of the ZL1 and Z/28, we're going to have to wait for the all-new generation Camaro before we see more than 600 ponies, methinks.
Ford, on the other hand, was the first player to deliver more than 650 horsies with its Shelby Mustang GT500. No word on what the company exactly has in store, but we're thinking it's going to be something like a sledgehammer. Though images have shown what appears to be an SVT/GT500 follow up car, all-new pictures surfaced this week that show a really worked up 2015 Mustang sporting some serious body panels. There's a lot of aerodynamic treatments and it is running the world famous Nürburgring.
Some are speculating that this is a more track-oriented version. Well, duh. Could it be the GT500/GT350? Could it be a track-oriented BOSS follow up? Time will tell.

This particular Mustang is thought to be a more track-targeted variant that aim to focus on dynamic abilities rather than outright power, to avoid overlapping with the upcoming GT500...
