Guigiaro front end and retro-styled Shelby GT500 rear end is what it looks like.

I hope you are right. Though with the camo it is too hard to tell for the front end.

it does a bit. but that could mean that this prototype is being powered by the suspected new 302 that was said to be the replacement for the outdated 4.6 and be in all base V8 models.

I hope they put that 5.0 Mod motor into production. The one they have for their race cars, "the cammer" is an awesome engine.

wasn't the current one introduced as a 2002 model year, making it effectively 8 years old by the time it's replaced

Hmm, I thought it was older than that. Just seems like ages :p

Same here, but it's because they're very common. If you drive around here for an hour, you'll likely see the entire current Mustang range from the automatic V6 convertible up to the GT500 as well as one Saleen or Roush version. When you see them that often it feels like they've been around forever.

Hot on the heels of our own reader-submitted spy shots of the 2010 Ford Mustang comes this new batch of images taken by professionals. Here we see for the first time the next Mustang's redesigned interior, and while it doesn't appear that the instrument panel and dash will stray too far from the current car's design, there are many notable differences. First and foremost is the new three-spoke steering wheel with redundant controls for cruise control on the left and multimedia buttons, no doubt designed to help operate Ford's SYNC system, on the right. Spy photographers also noticed that while the gauges look the same as those in the current Mustang, they are now white-faced and the speedometer and tachometer have switched places. We can also make out new rectangular vents sitting atop the center stack, though a familiar round vent remains to the left of the steering wheel. The basic shape of the center stack appears to be tweaked somehow, but we can't say for sure what the switchgear for the stereo and HVAC controls will look like since they were well covered in this prototype. Also included in the gallery below are new shots of the 2010 Ford Mustang's front and rear with exposed views of the 1970-inspired headlamps as well as the updated taillights. We expect to see plenty more spy photos between now and the car's official introduction at this year's Los Angeles Auto Show.

We haven't seen new spy shots of the 2010 Ford Mustang for a while, so leave it to an Autoblog reader to have his camera at the ready when one flies by on the highway. Brandon R. took these pictures on an undisclosed road somewhere in the U.S. (that should narrow it down for you) and tells us that the driver wasn't very interested in smiling for the camera. After he realized that the car was being photographed, the Mustang jockey slammed on the brakes and promptly pulled over, but not before Brandon had taken his pics and recorded video of the Mustang showing off its passing power.

It's all speculation as to what's powering this prototype, but it appears to be a GT model if wheel size and two grille-mounted fog lamps are any indication. Out back are dual exhaust pipes and what must be a rear spoiler all covered up, as well. The hood features a big bulge, but don't get too excited as we surmise it's not to make room for some monster engine but rather keep the contour of the new hood a secret. Studying the front end, we also get a clearer view of the Mustang's new headlights as well as the lower air intake. All in all, Brandon did an excellent job in his impromptu debut as a spy photographer/videographer and we hope he spends more time with the cruise control on and his camera riding shotgun. Thanks for the photos and video, Brandon!

I'm liking this update the more I see of it. I hope the suspension and power-train see improvements as well.

Ford gave us a hint what changes we would be seeing on the 2010 Mustang by releasing images of its new edgy pony emblem yesterday, but a three-inch badge leaves a lot of room for speculation. We want to see more of the real deal. A member of MustangForums.com might have just the thing with what appears to be a photo of the 2010 Mustang hood. At first we had doubts that such an aggressive design would make it to production, but after taking a look at the spy photos, it looks like at least one of the test mules has a cowl hood lurking beneath all that camouflage. We'll be on the look out for more photos of the 2010 Mustang, and hopefully we'll have the whole car pieced together by the time the LA Auto Show rolls around!

Its a nice hood nonetheless.

The hood looks really cool! Judging from the pictures, I see a bit of a redesigned interior which is definitely a big plus for Ford.

I like how they labeled the hood just in case you know someone thought well why wouldn't they have the concave edition. Would be like having a little bird bath up front just fill it up drive slowly then when you see the whites of their shirt splash. Wow brainwave here Mustang Splash Out edition with water canon
