    The 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 is the most powerful Ford ever

    Ford promised the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 would be its most powerful car ever, and it wasn’t kidding.


    (Ford)



    The automaker has revealed that the upcoming coupe’s supercharged 5.2-liter V8 will send 760 hp and 625 lb-ft of torque through its 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
    That blows away the last GT500’s 662 hp engine, not to mention the $450,000 Ford GT’s 647 hp turbocharged V6.

    It’s also 5 hp more than the soon-to-be-replaced Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 can muster, but falls short of the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye’s 797 hp for the American muscle car crown.

    Ford says the GT500 isn’t all about power, though. It should be significantly lighter than the Challenger and features an advanced suspension and aerodynamics package designed to improve its handling on a twisty road racing track. That said, Ford is promising a quarter-mile time of under 11 seconds.

    Pricing for the GT500 has not been announced, but it will slot into the Mustang lineup above the $60,235 GT350 when it goes on sale this fall.

    I told the wife, that when we get settled permanently where the weather doesn't have ice on the roads six months a year, that I will own a sports car. This just may be it.

    6 months ago I tried Mustangs, Camaro's and the Challengers....ended up with a Scat Pack Shaker Hood challenger...485hp....and a TON of FUN. The others were great in their own way, but I wanted to be able to put someone in the back seat (grandson) and stuff in the trunk. Be sure you drive them all before you buy! Only way to be sure!
    Fun too!

    Nope, I'm going old school Chevy when I retire. '64 Nova SS, '70 Chevelle SS, Early 70's Split bumper Camero or 61-67 Impalla SS. But I have my eye on a '64 Chevy short bed truck with no engine, tranny. I might make it a project for my step son and myself. NO computers. Pure old school HP. 400 HP is enough for me.

    +1 on the "old school". I have a project car (had it for 15 years--I'll get to it someday!) that's a 1967 Dodge Coronet 500 hardtop with a 383 Hi-performance engine and automatic transmission. I need to upgrade the drum brakes to disc, have the transmission and rear-end seals replaced, a little body work and paint, carpet and seat cover, upgrade front suspension, and it should be good to go. Assuming that the motor doesn't need a full rebuild (it's been sitting in the back of the shop for quite awhile). Hopefully I can start on it next year.

    Not in the same class as a new Mustang, but it works for me.
