2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Review — Test Drive of the Most Powerful Mustang Ever

Google Rank
In this video, we unleash the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500's 760 horsepower on public roads and the racetrack. Carlos Lago takes us through the details of this pony-car brute, from the details of its interior to the hardware that brings it all together, including the new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The Shelby GT500 asks for quite a bit of coin, especially when compared to its traditional Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger rivals. But that money buys a combination of staggering performance and drivability that is sure to attract fans.

2020 GT500 Review:

The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is a high-performance version of the Mustang coupe available in a single trim level. Essentially a track-ready, street-legal Mustang, it has many performance features not available on the standard-issue car.

At a distance, the 2020 Shelby GT500 looks like a Mustang that's been rushed through a speed shop with bad taste and unrestricted access to hastily made CAD files. But look closer and you'll see that the wide fenders, enormous grille and rear wing spoiler have a real purpose: to harness the speed generated by the latest über-Mustang's 760 hp.

The expansive fenders contain wider wheels and tires to stick the car to the road better, while the front grille sized like a New York City sidewalk grate helps cool the hard-working supercharged V8 engine. The rear spoiler and assorted lower and side winglets also aid in directing airflow to press the car to the ground.

The Shelby GT500 appears well-equipped to reassert itself as the top horse in the stable. Ford developed a new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission specifically for this engine and fitted huge 16.5-inch-diameter front brake rotors clamped upon with six-piston calipers. The adaptive suspension can adjust to various modes, including settings for track-day heroics or drag-race showdowns.

This Mustang is clearly a purpose-built car that won't be content with the daily commute. Not that you couldn't use it for that, however. Inside you'll find striking two-tone leather sport seats, microsuede door panel inserts, a 12-inch LCD gauge cluster, the Sync 3 touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and an optional Bang & Olufsen sound system. Vanquishing world-class performance-car competitors need not come at the cost of comfort and convenience.
