If you just broke open the piggy bank to get yourself a 2019 Shelby GT350, you might want to hold off just one more year and get yourself something faster (add a few more dollars to the pile while you wait). The 2020 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 promises to be the most powerful Ford production car, ever. Expected to exceed 700 horsepower and run a quarter mile in under 11 seconds, next year’s Shelby aims to dominate every muscle car in its class, both in the straightaway and on the track.
The 5.2 liter V8 engine is built by hand with an Eaton supercharger nestled in the valley of the V. That’s all bolted to a Tremec 7-speed transmission that can shift in less than 100 milliseconds and offers a variety of drive modes, from slippery to drag. They’ve revised the suspension geometry and employed an active MagneRide suspension system, while adding six-piston Brembo brakes with huge rotors for serious stopping power. New colors include Red Hot, Twister Orange and Iconic Silver — and you have one year to pick which color you like best.
