2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Review: The GT500 is the fastest Mustang ever. It is based on the track-focused GT350 but more powerful. It gives an essence of a proper American Muscle car as well as a latest sports car. The GT500 offers many additional features, some of them include optional carbon-fiber wheels, track tires, and aerodynamic features that will make this car a track beast. Its main rival is the 807-hp 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.

2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Engine & Performance

The 2020 Mustang GT500 offers a 760-hp supercharged 5.2-liter V-8 engine and comes with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that sends all the power to the rear wheels that doesn’t let it deliver the power you might expect.

The GT500 has an insane exhaust that roars while downshifting. More weight helps it to handle really well around the corners and the tires are very grippy. The huge Brembo brakes do their work perfectly.

We don’t expect it to offer a great 0-60 mph time but we’re pretty damn sure that it is a monstrous machine and its full potential can be released by the perfect set of options offered by Shelby.

2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Models

The GT500 is all-new for 2020 and it will only be available in one model that can be customized by a lot of options.

2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Interior

The GT500 is more of a track-focused car so you cannot expect much comfort in the interior. The seats are pretty tight and there’s a lot of room in the Dodge Challenger. There are optional Recaro racing seats as well in the GT500 and you’re going to fit in those air-tight. The cargo space is 14 cubic feet which are just 2 cubic feet less than the Challenger.

The infotainment system includes an 8.0-inch touchscreen that includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM, a CD player, two USB ports, and nine speakers. Some optional features include Ford’s own navigation and a 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.

A special feature is also available that allows you to lock and unlock the car thorough the phone application, it also allows you to have a wifi hotspot with a legit data subscription.
