2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Flexes its Supercar Muscles

Ford revealed the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 way back in January, but it’s kept all the official performance under wraps, giving fans only a general idea of what it’ll offer. Recently, Ford unveiled the specifics of its powertrain and performance, showing this Mustang just may be a supercar-killer.

Upon its debut, we learned the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 would boast a supercharged 5.2-liter V-8 with “over 700 horsepower,” but Ford kept the official output a secret. In June, the Blue Oval let a little more info trickle out, revealing the official output would check in at 760 horsepower and 625 pound-feet of torque. This power will route through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission — sorry, no manual this year — and out to a Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires wrapped around carbon-fiber wheels.

In August, we finally get a taste of the new Shelby GT500’s on-track performance. Ford announced the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 will sprint from 0 to 100 mph and slow back to a stop in just 10.6 seconds. There is still no official word on the Mustang Shelby GT500’s 0-to-60 time, but when you’re ripping off 0-to-100-to-0 runs in 10.6 seconds, you can rest assured the 0-to-60 time will fall near the mid-three-second mark, just as Ford promised in January.

Stay tuned for more updates on the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 as we approach its fall 2019 debut.
