See more 2015 SVT Mustang spy photos at AutoGuide.comFord is hitting the track with the Mustang SVT for some high-speed testing, which means that the car has shed its heavy body cladding and can finally be seen.
Due to the extensive aero package and brake and tire upgrades, this may actually be a race-prepped version of the upcoming high-power Mustang. We can see a hood scoop, wider rocker panels, a front splitter and a quad tip exhaust. Getting the power to the road are Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, wrapped around multi-spoke wheels that feature cross-drilled rotors and massive calipers.

For power, a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V8 is expected under the hood of this SVT car, and it may feature a flat plane crank. Power is unknown, but expect it to land somewhere around 500 hp.
According to our photographer on the scene, SVT has suffered a few catastrophic failures with the engine during testing, so the high-power SVT Mustang may be delayed.
