2020 Ford Shelby GT500 | 2019 Detroit Auto Show

Added by AutomotiveUploads
First, the headline: This Mustang-inspired muscle car packs over 700 horsepower under the hood, courtesy of a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine. We lost our collective minds when Dodge released a pair of 707-horsepower muscle cars a few years ago. But this GT500 looks to be more than just a straight-line speed demon.

Of course, it’s that, too. The big engine and a lightning-fast-shifting 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission mean 60 miles per hour arrives in the mid-3-second range. But the GT500 should bring things to a halt awfully fast, too, thanks to 16.5-inch front brake rotors—the largest standard equipment on any domestic sports coupe.

Inside, you can spec a GT500 with Recaro racing seats. The 12-inch color LCD instrument cluster is all business, the 8-inch touchscreen runs Ford’s Sync 3 infotainment software, and you can add an available 12-speaker B&O Play stereo.

It’s hard to look at this car and not think speed. The huge angular grille, the big rear spoiler, and the sculpted hood with these massive louvered vents ensure that other drivers will know what they’re up against when they see a GT500 at the next stop light. And then, of course, there’s the color. This one’s called Twisted Orange, but there’s also a Red and Silver, all with racing stripes available. The GT500 should be available in fall of this year. Which color would you pick?
