It is finally confirmed! The Ford Mustang is here.

How powerful is it?

The sixth generation Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will be boasting the highest specific power and torque outputs for a supercharged factory engine.

Ford indeed was not joking when it claimed this would be the most powerful production ever. The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is the biggest snake yet promising to be the quickest and best-handling to date.

Carrying a hand-built, supercharged 5.2-liter cross plane V-8, this magnificent ‘stang will produce 760 horsepower and 625 pound-foot of torque.

You read that right. It’s even more potent than Australia’s most powerful road car on sale which is the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. The all-new GT500 also outshines all its predecessors, making it the most powerful street-legal Ford ever made. Much quicker than the GT350, this car will run 0-62 miles per hour in about 3.5 seconds and will complete the quarter mile in less than 11 seconds.

What are the Ford Mustang's features?

Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will feature a Tremec seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, new electronic power steering and a revised suspension geometry. Another record-breaking feature is the 16.5-inch two-piece front rotors of the Brembo brakes. These brakes are the largest on any domestic sports coupe.

GT500 packs a muscular, louvered hood, a new rear spoiler and front fascia openings twice as those found on the GT350. A most noticeable change is the wider front fenders that accommodates the wider tires. Looking inside, you will find Recaro seats, a 12-speaker B&O sound system and an 8.8 infotainment display.

Outside, it’s all glossy black from the water line up. If you want a striped black roof instead, it will come as optional. If it isn’t intimidating enough, Ford will be introducing three new colors for the GT500 – Red Hot, Twister Orange, and Iconic Silver.

Just like the other Mustangs in the past, the first production of the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 went into auction, earning an impressive 1.1 million dollars; won by the Chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson.

Although GT500 won’t make it to Australia through Ford, Mustang Motorsport said they’ll be able to import and convert it for local use. You will have to wait for few more months to get a glimpse of this super beast. Official pricings are not available yet but with its super powers, this could be the most expensive version of the sixth-generation Mustang.
