Ford Shelby GT500 to get 720 horsepower?

The leaked spec sheet points to a top speed of 190 mph

Specifications for Ford's upcoming Mustang Shelby GT500 may have leaked ahead of schedule.

A spec sheet shared to The Drive by an anonymous source suggests the pony car will be powered by a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 with 720 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and 650 pound-feet of torque.

If true, the GT500 will edge ahead of the Dodge Challenger Hellcat's 707 horsepower but fall short of the Hellcat Redeye's 797 ponies. Previous rumors pointed even higher to 772 horsepower and 743 pound-feet of twist for the GT500.

Ford is expected to fully reveal the GT500 sometime early next year.
