The All-New Shelby GT500 Has Arrived

The debut of the 2020 Shelby GT500 not only gives Mustang fans a new Stang to drool over, but gives all Ford fans the brand’s “most powerful street-legal Ford in history.”

Packing a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 under the hood the GT500 is kicking out more than 700hp via the help of a, “2.65-liter roots-type supercharger with air-to-liquid intercooler.” All of that power makes its way to the wheels by way of a TREMEC 7-speed dual-clutch transmission which is capable of shifts in under 100 milliseconds and is the byproduct of Ford’s GT development. Making sure the car can handle the power on the road is Michelin Pilot Sport 4S and Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires with 16.5-inch Brembo brakes all working in unison with the latest MagnaRide suspension. These performance initiatives by Ford give the GT500 a mid-three-second 0-60 mph and sub-11-second quarter-mile time.

Though its undoubtedly the performance that Ford was focused on, and its fans will be as well, the GT500 is a street-legal car and therefore doesn’t sleep on the street car amenities. The Shelby has a, “12-inch full-color LCD instrument cluster, while a high-performance custom-tuned 12-speaker B&O Play premium audio system is available. All of this is controlled via an 8-inch SYNC 3 touch screen featuring SiriusXM and FordPass Connect.”

The 2020 Ford Shelby GT500 is slated to arrive this fall.
