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.
