GT500 out testing with a ZL1!

Images have been shared around of what seems to be a Shelby GT350 chassis sporting a supercharger! Many rumors have been going around recently about a possible 7.0L engine and twin turbo setup on the new GT500. We can see that this is most likely a 5.2L motor with the supercharger mounted on top of it. Knowing how the current 5.2L Voodoo engine handles boost, this new 5.2 engine would most likely be a cross-plane crankshaft. It looks like those rumors may have been squashed with this recent photo.

Most of the puzzle pieces are slowly starting to come together. With Eaton releasing their newest supercharger, the R2650, we have speculation that this might be the supercharger sitting on top of this “GT350” in the image below. The lobes look slightly larger than the current TVS 2.3L supercharger. We can’t think of a better time to unveil the newest generation of GT500, since this year marks the 50th anniversary!

Will this new supercharger be able to fit on the previous 5.0L Coyote engines? (insert thinking emoji)
