2021 Ford Mustang Stage 3 By Roush
2021 Ford Mustang GT500CR by Classic Recreations
We had just stopped drooling over SpeedKore’s Hellraiser when Classic Recreations came in smashing through the door with the carbon fiber-bodied 1967 Shelby GT500CR Mustang.
The build was announced in September 2020 as an extremely limited run of just 25 units and we are glad to report that it is finally here. With a little help from SpeedKore, that is.
Ford Could Give Us a Mustang GT3 Instead of an LMDh Prototype
Ford quit the IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship and the FIA World Endurance Championship at the end of 2019 when its successful GT race car built to the GTE regulations was parked. Now, as GTE is nearing the end of its lifespan, at least in North America, Ford is looking at fielding a
based GT3 car in the future although the option to build an LMDh prototype that could fight for outright wins at Le Mans, Daytona, and Sebring isn’t completely off the table either.
By 2028 The Ford Mustang Could Be An All-Electric Coupe
When Ford unveiled its first electric SUV, the Mach-E, with ‘Mustang’ in it, people lost their minds. The pony badge belongs to a rich heritage of loud, roaring muscle cars that has built a legacy of its own over the decades. Many of us kind of accepted it since it was a new model with the Mustang badge and not a replacement.
However, this new report has ticked us off again. According to Autoline Daily, the Mustang is going to go all-electric starting 2028. Nope, it won’t be sold alongside the regular, rear-wheel-drive, V-8-powered pony. It will be the end of an era. I’m not crying, you’re crying.
The $18,500 Carbon Fiber Track Pack Makes the Mustang Shelby GT500 Slower
The Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is available with a Carbon Fiber Track Pack that makes it look meaner thanks to a GT4-spec rear wing. It also makes it lighter thanks to the carbon-fiber wheels, carbon-fiber dashboard, and rear-seat delete, as well as more agile on the race track.
On the other hand, it seems that this bundle makes the GT500 slower in a straight line. So if you’re planning to race your GT500 at the drag strip, save yourself $18,500 and stay away from the Carbon Fiber Track Pack.
One of Cyberpunk 2077’s Most Exotic Rides Is Now Available in Forza Horizon 4
Cyberpunk 2077 is barely a week old, and it’s already crossing over to a different game. One of the game’s most exotic vehicles is jumping over to the world of Forza Horizon 4 as a playable car. The custom Quadra Turbo-R V-Tech is the latest in a long line of collaborations that Playground Games, the developers of FH4, have signed off on with other video game titles.
Forza Horizon 4 gamers will have to complete a challenge to gain access to the Quadra Turbo-R V-Tech, but the cost that comes with completing it should be worth it once you can get behind the wheel of the racy supercar. If you already have the Halo Warthog and the custom Regalia from Final Fantasy 15, the Quadra Turbo-R V-Tech car would make a nice addition to your collection.
This Supercharged Terminator Ford Mustang Is Not For the Faint Hearted
The fourth-generation Mustang wasn’t exactly a looker when it first broke cover in 1993, but Ford fixed that with the "New Edge" redesign in late 1998. More importantly, Ford rolled out a new SVT Cobra model, while the Cobra R made a comeback for 2000 with 385 horsepower and 385 pound-feet of torque. But the Cobra R wasn’t the ultimate fourth-gen Mustang.
In 2003, Ford and SVT unveiled the Terminator Cobra. Powered by a supercharged 4.6-liter engine instead of the Cobra’s 5.4-liter V-8, the Terminator came with 390 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque on tap, along with unique design features and updates. A notable output back in 2003, 390 horsepower doesn’t seem that spectacular in 2020, but someone noticed the Terminator’s potential and turned it into an even more menacing beast.
Throwback: 2006 Ford Shelby GT500 "Germany" Commercial
2006 seems like forever ago, doesn’t it? At the very least, it feels like a different lifetime. Social media was still in its infancy and the world felt a lot bigger back then. 2006 was also a big year for Ford. The Blue Oval was bringing the Shelby Mustang back to life after a 25-year absence. Ford went all-out in marketing the return of the Shelby nameplate, and one commercial, in particular, effectively hammered Ford’s point. The Shelby Mustang was a beast, and there really was just one road in the world that could have a proper dance with it: the German Autobahn.
The ad, called “Germany,” puts the spotlight squarely on the 2006 Shelby Mustang GT500 and what it could do on a stretch of road that didn’t have any speed limits. It’s a fascinating commercial to look back on given that the Shelby Mustang is now deep into its third generation.
Your Next Crate Engine Should Be the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 "Predator" V-8
Not too long ago, news of the Godzilla pushrod V-8 arriving in the 2022 Mustang surfaced on the internet. But, it’s time to get over it now, because there’s something even more exciting coming up. According to Ford Authority, the automaker will offer the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500’s heart as a crate engine. The details surrounding it are still scarce, but this is exciting!
A 6.8-Liter, Pushrod V-8 Could Land in the Ford F-150 And Mustang by 2022
Ford’s Godzilla engine is old news now, as there’s a new 6.8-liter V-8 powerhouse in the works. This news comes courtesy of the President of a Canadian trade union for auto workers, who claims that Ford is building a new 6.8-liter V-8 engine. While unconfirmed by Ford, this engine is expected to be offered in both the F-150 and the Mustang.
The Current-Gen Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Just Got More Valuable
After five years on the market, Ford decided to discontinue the Shelby GT350 based on the sixth-generation Mustang. Introduced in 2015, the Shelby GT350 and the GT350R won’t be offered for the 2021 model year. If you already own one, this is good news as the value of the GT350 is likely to go up. If you missed on the GT350, well, you can always go for the beefed-up GT500.
Ford Will Sell the Mustang Mach 1 In Europe, But There’s a Big Catch
The Ford Mustang Mach 1 is headed to the Old Continent. No, it’s not going there for test runs at the Nurburgring — it already did that — nor is it going there to be showcased at an auto event — it just made its debut at Goodwood SpeedWeek — only to return to the U.S. as an America-only special edition Mustang. The Mustang Mach 1 is coming to Europe, and, more importantly, it will be staying in Europe.
Here’s the Bonkers ’69 Ford Mustang That You Never Knew Existed
The Ford Mustang’s V-8 Is Here to Stay - At Least For Now, Anyway
Yes, car manufacturers are switching to smaller engines aided by forced induction. Some are even electrifying their powertrains, mixing petrol units with e-motors, but that doesn’t mean the V-8’s days are numbered - yet.
Take Ford, for example. According to a report by Ford Authority, the carmaker maintains a positive position as far as V-8s are concerned and has no intention of killing off this particular cylinder configuration in the foreseeable future.
The Ford Mustang Crashes Enough, And a New Recall Says It Could Get Much Worse
The Ford Mustang is the world’s best-selling performance car, but just because it’s popular, that doesn’t mean it’s immune to mechanical issues and the recalls that come after that. Brace for some bad news, then, owners of the 2020 Ford Mustang. There’s a good chance that your muscle car will be recalled after Ford submitted documents to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) saying that more than 38,000 units of the 2020 Mustang could have a defective brake pedal bracket assembly.
The defect is largely contained to Mustangs with automatic transmissions; Mustangs with manual transmissions aren’t affected. It’s a tough blow for owners of 2020 Mustangs that are affected by the recall, especially if you live outside the U.S.
You’ll Definitely Believe What Happens To This Mustang Doing Donuts
Just because the rooftop parking lot is empty, that doesn’t mean you can just go there and do donuts to your heart’s content. Sure, the empty space is great for these burnout runs, but the debauchery can also go sideways at a moment’s notice, especially if you’re not careful. Two people found that out first-hand when they went to an empty rooftop parking lot, intending to leave rubber in concrete. After doing a serious of burnouts, the driver inexplicably loses control of his rear-wheel-drive ‘Stang, causing the muscle car to slam cleanly into a light pole. Worse, the whole bone-headed scene was captured on video by a couple, who were also at the rooftop parking in their own Mustang doing whatever it is they were doing. Fortunately, the driver and passenger of the crashed ‘Stang didn’t appear to get seriously hurt from the crash. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for their prized ‘Stang, which now has a long date with mechanics before it gets back up on its feet, or, in this case, all four wheels.
This Classic, Mid-Engined Mustang Is the Muscle Car We’ve Always Deserved
The 1969-1970 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 arguably marked the end of an era, as the GT500 began to be built in-house by Ford. Carroll Shelby’s actual involvement in the design of the car was reduced, somewhat telling of the colder relationship between the two sides that was further underlined by the fact that Ford raced the Boss 302 at the same time - not a Shelby model. But all that gets put aside when you look at the renders of Rostislav Prokop that has envisioned an unusual mid-engined Mustang: one that keeps the proportions of the front-engined original.
Be Amazed As Someone Painstakingly Carves a 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500 Out of Wood
We’ve been covering woodies in these pages a lot recently, and for good reason. The car body style deserves to be covered as much it does, and while we’ll continue to do that, we’re showcasing something similar — and different — this time around.
This, folks, is a 1967 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 that’s built entirely from wood. It’s not the woodie you expected, but it’s the wood carving we all deserve. This masterful creation comes to us by way of the YouTube channel Woodworking Art, which is a must-follow channel, by the way.
A California Dealer Is Trying to Charge McLaren Money For a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
It has been a year and a half since Ford revealed the Mustang Shelby GT500, and yet here we are still talking about price gouging. The last time this happened, a dealer in Riverside California was asking $185,890, which stood for about $80,000 worth of “market adjustment” or dealer markup. This time, another overzealous California dealer has taken things to a whole new level of stupid.
