Ford Performance has unveiled the Shelby GT500, the most powerful street-legal production Ford ever. The high-performance Mustang will feature a hand-built, supercharged 5.2L aluminum V8 that produces 700 hp that's capable of 0-60 times in the mid three seconds and a sub-11-second quarter-mile time. Taking what they learned from the development of the Ford GT, the Ford Performance team matched the engine with a Tremec 7-speed dual-clutch transmission that can be adjusted with a variety of drive modes that include normal, slippery, sport, and drag and track.
Complementing all that power is an aerodynamic design inspired by fighter jets delivering the most downforce ever offered in a Ford car. It'll also be equipped with custom Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, Brembo brakes, active MagneRide suspension, and two available handling packages. These handling packages include an adjustable strut top mounts and spoiler with Gurney flap while the Carbon Fiber Track Package includes 20-inch carbon fiber wheels, custom Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, adjustable exposed carbon fiber GT4 track wing and splitter wickers with integrated dive plane, and a deleted rear seat.
Available this fall.
