2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500: 760 Reasons Why!

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

Let’s rock! It was a fantastic day at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the launch of the breathtaking 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 and the 760 galloping horses it packs under the hood. The muscle car is smarter, faster, and nastier. With 55 years of Mustang heritage under its belt, Ford set out to build a street-legal “weapon of mass seduction” to represent as the most powerful member of the family. The pony car hits 0-60 mph in 3.3 seconds, ¼ mile in 10.7 seconds, and 0-100-0 in 10.6 seconds. Mission accomplished.

The muscle car from Detroit ignites from a hand-built, supercharged 5.2-liter V8 producing 760-horsepower as mentioned above and 625 incredible ft-lbs of torque. An intelligent engine requires intelligent shifting, so Ford Performance paired the 5.2 with a Tremec TR-9070 DCT 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with normal, weather, sport, drag, and track modes. The symphony of the inverted 2.65-liter Eaton supercharger (with an air-to-water intercooler on top) sounds so glorious when the Shelby GT500 blows by like mammals giving chase.
