2011 Ford Mustang GT: The 5.0 Is Back!S

This is the first photo of the 5.0-liter all-aluminum beatin' heart of the 2011 Ford Mustang GT that'll pump at a rockin' 412 HP and 390 lb-ft of torque. Merry Christmas. More below.

We're told the 5.0-liter motor will be mated to a 6R80 six-speed auto or MT82 manual transmission. We're expecting we'll have more details up as soon as the embargo really breaks at the beginning of this upcoming week. For the moment — well — let's just say many Bothans at MustangHeaven and BurlappCars died to bring you these two photos.
