The 2010 Ford Mustang wasn't radically different from the previous-generation car, so it should come as no surprise that the 2010 Shelby GT500 doesn't stray too far from the 2009 version. Although Ford has yet to make any official statements about the new Shelby GT500, an order sheet has been leaked online, giving us a peek of what to expect from the production model.

The spec sheet -- which surfaced on MustangBlog.com -- didn't reveal the 2010 Shelby GT500's performance figures, but did say the same supercharged 5.4L V8 would be found underhood. However, a bump in power is expected for the new car, with an intake kit possibly bumping power to 540 horsepower.

The 2010 GT500 will be available in two new colors, Grabber Blue and Kona Blue Metallic. To go along with the two new shades of blue, the GT500 will now come with standard striping, with coloring depending on interior color choices.

Other tweaks for 2010 include AdvanceTrac stability control, Ford's capless fueling system, SYNC, voice-activated navigation and 18 and 19 inch wheels.

No word on when the 2010 Shelby GT500 will make its public debut, but with the all-new Mustang now public knowledge, we suspect the Shelby version will surface at one of the upcoming auto shows.
