The 2020 Shelby GT500 is the ultimate Mustang, with 760 horsepower and more go-fast goodies than a speed shop.
The legendary GT500 nameplate slots above the track-ready Shelby GT350, and it wears a distinct front end with different optional wings that makes them easy to separate.
Featuring a supercharged 5.2-liter V-8 that makes an eye-watering 760 horsepower and 625 lb-ft of torque and mates to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, Ford says the GT500 will be able to hit 60 mph in less than three seconds and turn the quarter-mile in less than eleven seconds. A carbon-fiber driveshaft routes all that thrust to the rear wheels; the dual-clutch transmission is capable of changing gears in less than 100 milliseconds. When it comes to ride, handling, and braking, the GT500 boasts adaptive dampers along with sticky Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires with unique compound and tread. Stopping power is provided by Brembo, with 16.5-inch rotors and six-piston calipers.
This Mustang can get very expensive – $107,080 with all the option boxes checked. That price does include destination charges, but still, a six-figure Mustang might be a hard pill for enthusiasts to swallow. Before deciding one way or another, take a look at what that cash will get you.
