Mere hours after we showed our renderings of the 2010 Shelby GT500 the photographers from KGP had a surprise for us: photos of a very lightly disguised 2010 GT500 convertible. This topless and likely line-topping version of the 2010 Ford Mustang will likely debut sometime after the base Mustang and offer a fiercer look and more power. As with the renderings from earlier, this GT500 seems to sport new hood ducts to help the mighty Mustang breathe deeply. The GT500 was conveniently captured within a fog that managed to obscure the spot where the engineers were snapped. Spy report below the jump.

The next-generation Mustang prototypes have begun running around without their prior heavy vinyl camouflage. The latest Mustangprototypes are disguised only with a graphic tape, providing a very clean view of Ford's revamped Pony Car. We just caught a prototype for the next Shelby GT500 convertible in this more revealing state of undress, giving us our best look yet at the one of the range-topping models in Ford's future Mustang lineup. In addition to the new grilles and headlight designs, we can clearly see a series of new hood ducts toward the front-third of the hood.
