Here’s What You Need to Know About Choosing the Color of Your 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

There are actually a lot of choices

We can’t not like the Blue colors that adorned the Shelby GT500 that was showcased during the car’s big debut. It was a beautiful color, and it fit the car pretty damn well. Of course, it looked even better because of the color of carpet it was displayed on, but that’s neither here nor there. What if you don’t want blue? Maybe you want pull-me-over-red (not that’s not a real color) or some variation of blue or purple even? Well, the Shelby GT500 is offered with your choice of 11 different colors, some of which you can have for free, and others you have to pay for. Oh, and about those racing stripes… we’ve got you covered on that too. Here’s what you need to know.

Here’s How the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Can Go from 0-100 mph and back to 0 in 10.6 Seconds

Hint: the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 uses a combo of sturdy brakes, custom tires, and a devilish engine of course

First unveiled at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 didn’t reveal itself to us in full straight away. We had to wait until June to find out the exact output of the supercharged, 5.2-liter V-8 and then we found out how much it will cost. However, some pieces of the puzzle were still missing. Now, Ford revealed another metric: the 0-100-0 time of the GT500. As you already read the title, you’ll know the most powerful road-going product of the Blue Oval does it in under 11 seconds and this places the monstrous muscle car in a rather exclusive club as you’ll find out below - yet behind what Dodge and Chevy can do.

When Ford conceived the latest Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 that’ll go on sale starting from $70,300 (without taxes) as a 2020 MY car, it pulled no punches in an effort to squash the Dodge Challenger Hellcat and the Chevy Camaro ZL1. Yes, it’s not as powerful as the 797 horsepower Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye but it’s got 110 ponies on the Camaro ZL1 and 30 horsepower on Ferrari’s F12 grand tourer that costs $320,000 when new. But the Mustang GT500 isn’t all about raw speed as it can also accelerate, stop, and corner incredibly well - if you couldn’t already tell by that GT4-style wing fixed to the tail end.

2020 Ford Mustang Shleby GT500 vs 2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

It’s like comparing apples to oranges, but with plenty of horsepower in the mix

The Shelby GT500 returned in 2019 after a five-year hiatus as the most powerful street-legal Ford, even when compared to the GT supercar. Now more track-ready than ever, the GT500 also borrows technology from the Mustang GT4 race car in order to compete with the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat (or even the Demon?) and the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. But is this 760-horsepower muscle car good enough to compete with higher-performance vehicles, like the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera? Let’s find out in the comparison below.

2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

Powered by a supercharged V-8 with more than 700 horsepower!

Dating back to the late 1960s, the Shelby GT500 returned in 2019 after a five-year hiatus. The first iteration of the sixth-gen Mustang to sport a supercharged V-8 engine, this GT500 is also the most powerful street-legal Ford, even when compared to the Ford GT supercar. The GT500 also borrows some tech from the GT, as well as from the race-spec Mustang GT4. The first GT500 in five years is aimed at the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. And needless to say, it has enough power to leave both its rivals behind in a cloud of dust. Arguably the biggest news is that the supercharged V-8 delivers in excess of 700 horsepower, but enthusiasts also have to cope with the fact that Ford doesn’t offer a manual gearbox. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.

2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Revs and Prowls the Streets of Las Vegas: Video

The Super ‘Stang has arrived in Sin City!

Making its big public debut at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is an absolutely beastly machine. Rocking a hyper-aggressive aero package with a plus-sized front intake and GT-style rear wing, a carbon fiber and suede interior, and a supercharged 5.2-liter V-8 blown to produce well over 700 horsepower, there’s no denying the appeal of this modern muscle car. Now we’re getting a listen to its exhaust note and a look at it on the streets of Las Vegas thanks to this recent post from YouTube user Speed Phenom.

Shot at a private event put on by FoMoCo, the video features a few nice glory shots of the GT500, as well as loads of info from a Shelby rep addressing the attending guests. Cutting through the PR talk, there are a few things that standout during the speech, including the assertion that the Shelby team is still working to pin down the GT500’s final horsepower figure “until the bitter end” (hence the “700+” number currently making the rounds), as well as a few performance numbers like a “sub-11” quarter mile and “mid-3’s” for the sprint to 60 mph. The video ends with a romp across the streets of Las Vegas.

If you’re hungry for anything and everything 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, then this is the video for you.

The Superformance GR-1 Could be the Six-Speed Shleby GT500 You Really Want

The Superformance GR-1 Could be the Six-Speed Shleby GT500 You Really Want

The engine from the GT500 plus a manual under a sleekier body? Sign us up!

The news that Superformance will pick up the nearly ancient Shelby GR-1 Concept and actually put it into production got us all excited. Now, we’re hearing that, while the engine might come straight from the Shelby GT500, the gearbox will be a manual, not the seven-speed dual-clutch unit in the new Super ’Stang.

The Shelby GR-1, a modern day tribute to the glorious Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe of the ’60s, could be the car to have if you want the punch of a 2020 Shelby GT500 but can’t swallow the automatic transmission, the only one available on the new model. Superformance, the company that will build the car, hopes to offer it with either an automatic or manual transmission and even an electric version is on the cards.

The Superformance GR-1 May Borrow the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500’s Power V-8 Engine

Can I borrow someone’s time machine and go into the future to get the damn car already

Superformance had signed a deal with Ford and Shelby in the last decade to recreate the magic known as the GR-1. The GR-1 was unveiled to the world 14 years back as a working prototype, but the car never made it to Superformance’s line up. Fast forward to 2019, and the project is about to be resurrected, but what’s more important now is what will give it motivation. When asked about the drivetrain, the tuning company’s CEO has hinted that the GR-1 could use 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500’s V-8 engine!

2005 Ford Shelby GR-1

2005 Ford Shelby GR-1

A prototype from the days when Ford was enamoured with retro-modern rides

Ford rebooted two of the cars that brought about some of its biggest victories ever scored on the world’s road courses. First, in 2004, Ford introduced the Shelby Cobra Concept, a modern reinterpretation of the mythical AC Cobra and, one year later, the Cobra Daytona Coupe was reborn through the GR-1 prototype.

It was 14 years ago that Ford released the S197 fifth-generation Mustang. Its old-school styling proved to be a hit among customers young and old, but the Mustang was only the tip of the iceberg, the model that made it through all the board meetings. Ford, in fact, built a number of old school-looking concepts in the early ’00s besides the Mustang and the GT that eventually got the green light. There was the 2001 Forty-Nine which harkened back to the smooth lines of the late ’40s Ford Custom, the F150 Lightning Rod and, then, there was the GR-1. Clearly, nostalgia was trendy a decade and a half ago.

This car, like the open-top Shelby Cobra Concept, is underpinned by a modified Ford GT platform made to suit the front engine layout. It went from a sketch on a drawing board to a full-size clay model displayed at the 2004 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in virtually no time and was then built as a fully-functional prototype in time for the 2005 North-American International Auto Show. Then, it all went silent. The suits didn’t approve another high-performance supercar right after the GT and only recently have we heard of plans to revive this special one-off.

Listen - I’ll let you have my stick shift when you can pry it from my cold, dead hands. I’m a dyed-in-the-wool performance lover when it comes to my automotive predilections, and as for my personal driving nirvana, nothing beats the right road, the right car, and a row-your-own, snap-it-into-place, drop-a-gear-and-disappear manual transmission. It’s something I’ll probably never outgrow. That said, I think going auto-only with the 2020 Ford Mustang GT500 is the right move. Wait, hear me out.
