New Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 unveiled in Detroit
There are certain cars that need no introduction and the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is one of them. More than 4 years after Ford introduced the GT350, the big brother of the Mustang Shelby family was unveiled a few weeks ago at the Detroit Auto Show.
More everything, the 2020 Shelby GT500 stands out immediately with its gaping front air intake, massive carbon fiber wheels, huge functional rear carbon fiber wing, and massive body panels throughout.
Nothing on the new Shelby GT500 is just for show. It’s all go. Power comes from a hand-built 5.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that’s connected to the rear wheels through a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. We know, a six-speed manual would have been great, but Ford says it would have been too much power for it to handle.
Ford is still working on the final power numbers, but more than 700 ponies are guaranteed with roughly the same torque figure.
The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is a monster in every way and the definitive Mustang. It’s more powerful than any other Mustang Shelby and more powerful even than the Ford GT. It’s everything the Mustang was meant to be.
