"In 1965, Carroll Shelby put the Le Mans GT40 engine inside of a Mustang to create the Cobra GT350, in order to compete at the track. Fast forward to today, and we’re still feeling Shelby’s influence on the Mustang with the GT500.
It has 760hp stock via a supercharged aluminum block 5.2L V8, making it the most powerful stock Ford in history. It sports a dual clutch that shifts faster than any manual. And it’s balanced to take corners unlike any Mustang before it.
The result of all of this is unmatched speed and unmistakable Mustang style and power."—Official description
The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is the high-end performance model of the sixth generation Ford Mustang that has been available since the 2015 model year. It is the successor to the 2013 Ford Shelby GT500.
Engine and drivetrain
Complementing the 2016 Ford Shelby GT350R, the GT500 features a supercharged variant of the 5.2 liter Ford V8 engine with 760 hp (567 kW), making it the most powerful Ford production car to date. It is also the first Ford Mustang model to be equipped with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. With a weight of 4171 lb (1892 kg), the GT500 yields a power-of-weight ratio of 0.18 hp per pound.
Due to its massive power output, the GT500 comes with wider tires on both ends, with the front-end receiving wider composite fenders to cover the front tires. The body is also fitted with a louvered hood vent, front splitter and an adjustable rear wing to improve airflow and increase downforce.
