2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is finally revealed in Detroit Auto Show in January! Unfortunately, it does not mean that we will see much more than we have known so far about this car. The major change and invention will be in term of the engine strength and torque, with amazingly short acceleration time.
However, there are few interesting changes in design, as well as in the cabin, but we were not able to see exactly how it will look like. As we know so far, it will truly race car, with a touch of traditionality.
- The engine is much stronger and has extremely high acceleration time.
- There is a great traditional design of the car.
- The cabin has not been described yet.
- The price could be very high.
When it comes to the design of 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, a lot of things are not known, and most of the things that we know are seen on Auto Show and anywhere else. The first look at this car show that it will have traditionally known details, like old lights and grille on the front end, although made of carbon fiber this time.
When it comes to the lights, those are used in GT350 already. The rear end recalls on Chevrolet Camaro Z, which is the main competitor. There will be used 305-inch width and 20-inch large carbon-fiber tires, which should provide stability and better control on higher speed.
The manufacturer kept many things as secret in new 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, and among them is look and equipment of the cabin. However, when it comes to the equipment, do not expect so much of it, since this car has not been made to be comfortable, but fast and mercilessly on the road. Expect sporty design of the seats, with details that are already used in old models made in this factory.
Although is supposed to be the most attractive and interesting change in 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, the engine has not been clearly described yet. The most expected model could be a 5.2-liter V8 petrol engine that produces amazing 700 horsepower. You could recognize similarities with the engine that is used in GT350 before but with slight changes.
However, at Detroit Auto Show main engineer said that we could expect 2.6-liter Eaton supercharger engine as well. On the other hand, they also said that the strength of the engine will be much higher than 700 horsepower. Whatever it is, the engine should increase the speed of 60 mph for less than 3 seconds, which directly compete with Porsche 911. Time will say what of these clues and rumors are true.
2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Release Date and Price
There are so many questions that have not been answered after the first showing of the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 and it seems that the manufacturer wanted to keep things in the grey zone for a while.
However, after the first models are released, which could be in the third quarter of the year, we will be able to know torque, horsepower and other information about the engine. The price could be on that list, too, since we are not sure in the final price of this model. Expect that it will be close to $100,000.
