2020 Ford Shelby GT500
2020 Ford Shelby GT500
As the most powerful and quickest factory Mustang ever, the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 blends modern sports-car performance with iconic muscle-car presence. It builds on the same racetrack-capable chassis as the excellent Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 with an additional 234 horsepower that lends it credibility at the drag strip as well. The GT500 makes speed effortlessly with equal parts brains and brawn, including a supercharged V-8 that hammers out 760 horsepower, a quick-shifting seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, and magnetorheological dampers. The Shelby GT500 sits at the pinnacle of American muscle cars alongside the 650-hp Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and the 797-hp Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye.
For consignment the most powerful Mustang you can currently order, and this one in 40.9 mile showroom condition. It sports a Carbon Fiber track pack, and other carbon fiber add ons, has a technology package, an awesome sound system, Recaro seats, and a touch screen navigation 4G system installed. Oh, did I mention the 5.2 liter supercharged V8? 760 horses at your right foot baby!
With the addition of the carbon fiber track package there are plenty of aero flaring, spoilers and add ons to make this car menacing looking on the exterior. Bathed in Rapid Red Metallic, and painted over black striping, black egg crate grille with centered hissing Cobra Badge, integrated HID projector headlamp, and LED sequential tail lamps, she's tough to beat looks wise. All the while maintaining as Ford does the original Mustang look utilizing the hockey stick cove and triple rear tail lighting. Just above said lighting is a carbon fiber spoiler that frames a steeply raked rear glass. Big quad exhaust tips peek out from the black rear roll panel and sound off as they should upon the more up. 20 inch carbon fiber black spoked wheels are wrapped in gummy thin bands on all 4 corners.
Breathe in the 40.9 mile new car smell and all the leather encased surfaces as well as the over the top technology that surrounds the driver and passengers. Upfront a 12-inch LCD instrument panel cluster grabs your attention. This is fronted by a telescoping tilting steering column topped by a Alcantara wrapped steering wheel complete with shifter paddles and various other finger touch controls. For the chairs we have Recaro leather trimmed seats with suede inserts and white accented wide bolsters, a snake embroidered badge and all integrated headrests. In dash central we note a large touch and voice activated screen for the radio, navigation, back up cam and phone system integration. Climate controls for each passenger to get it just right baby bear for each individual. Up top a carbon fiber dash top houses some round gauges and ball styled air venting. Toggles for Magneride adjustment, launch controls and other modes are available at your fingertips. Rear seating, or lack thereof has been deleted but does still sport the formed tubs now covered with carpeting, so one can assume its a rear seat delete car. A traditional shift lever had been replaced with an electronic wheel to select your drive mode to go front, back or park. Black for the carpeting and headliner, and you are ready to roll in style and speed all secure except for the poh poh that will pull you over for doing anything over 80, which in this car is just getting warmed up. Careful!
5.2 Liters of Crossplane crank V8 are stuffed into this engine bay. It has EFI and is supercharged for just a bit more oomph, or should I say OOOMPH!! A Tremec 7-speed automatic paddle shift transmission is on the back of this mill, and a Torsen differential with 3.73 TracLock carrier takes the power and puts it to the wheels, and then some.
New and untouched by any road dirt to date, we note independent coil springs all around, Brembo brakes with 2 piece rotors in power disc form, and a track app non nanny assisted mode controllable by the key fob.
With preservation of the low, low mileage status we did not drive this car, even though we would have loved to. Just look at the stats online and fantasize about how it can take you to the next level on the performance front, and if you are really into it, or just make a purchase for that perma-smile look! Push the button, flip the paddles and go..
