2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 Lets Its 760 HP Loose, Petrolheads Rejoice!

Another day, another video from Goodwood. Only this one absolutely had to be shared, as it shows the new Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 being driven on the hill, after a smoky start, in the hands of Vaughn Gittin Jr.

The most powerful street-legal Ford ever made its public debut last week during the UK event, prior to its launch that’s scheduled for this fall.

The GT500 will reportedly have a $73,995 starting price in the United States, destination charge and gas guzzler tax included. That’s about as much as the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, which is $500 less expensive and more powerful, with its 6.2-liter, supercharged V8 kicking out 808 PS (797 hp / 595 kW) and 956 Nm (707 lb-ft) of torque.

The 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500, on the other hand, is equipped with a 5.2-liter, supercharged V8 that produces 771 PS (760 hp / 567 kW) and 847 Nm (625 lb-ft) of torque, but despite the power deficit, needs a Redeye-matching 3.5 seconds for the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration. The quarter-mile run is estimated to take less than 11 seconds – again, roughly the same as its direct competitor from FCA, which can do it in 10.8 seconds, at 211 km/h (131 mph).

With more power than some current (hugely more expensive) exotics and the theoretical ability to put them in their corner, the Mustang Shelby GT500 looks to be a game changer. We will find out just how good it is once Ford allows access to the Press, but in the meantime, let’s watch it tackle the Goodwood hill climb below.

      Love seeing it at Goodwood.

  • SteersUright

    Didn’t need the burnout at the beginning. Just setting a laptime would’ve been really cool to see how it compared.

    • Bash

      Sometimes they warm up the tires you know.

  • GobbleUp

    More I see the greater my disappointment.

    • DHG2605

      Take down the mirror.

  • Six_Tymes

    It seems very impressive in all. but quit with the burn outs all the time, it seems stupid to be ruining the expensive tires these come with? ok, warm them up as much as you need if others do also, but the excessive burnouts at this point gives Ford a bad name. I mean does Ford really want this car to be thought of as just a burn out brute? it borders on childish. Same goes with all the reviewers that do the same with the hell cat and camaros. I mean come on american car companies, have your marketing departments re-think, Get a Grip already.

      Although you are right this wastes the tires but to me the point of performance cars is to have fun with the experience. Don’t worry too much about what people will do with their cars. American culture likes doing this and I love it. Not like the euros can do this with comparable cars cost wise. Since the average cars would be some overpriced FWD 4 banger. As far as marketing goes they are on point to the target audience. They are not trying to sell to girls who want FWD raised up cars.

        When those syntheic compounds burn and you breathe them in there will be harm done to your lungs…and others.

        • Dark Rebel

          When China is mining lithium for everyone’s phones and electric boxes on wheels that pollution is bad for the neighboring countries. So many things are bad for people, yet the population is exploding on this planet. Girls are bloated in the USA, which is very bad for my eyes? So what is your point?

          • Mark Schaffer

            That the pollution from ICE vehicles last for millennia means you are clueless about the worst problem facing humanity is all.
            But, anonymous posters have no integrity so I don’t expect rational thought and am never disappointed.

  • Mark Schaffer

    Too bad about the both the short and long term pollution.

    • TheAmerican2point0

      ??

  • Wandering_Spirit

    Sheer power. I’d love to try one. I am just sorry for what will happen to oncoming cars, trees and people at Cars and Coffees once it ends in wrong hands.

    • Karl

      Old stereotypes die slow I suppose. I guess you didn’t get the memo,modern American muscle cars can actually navigate around corners Bud.

      • Wandering_Spirit

        Sure. But can you point at the part in which i implied that this specific model can’t navigate corners? Or perhaps i was hinting at the skills of their average driver?

        • Karl

          Your inference was spot on. Life with the consequences..

  • rodriguez256

    The new GT500 isn’t offered in yellow, the color you see here is Grabber Lime. Also they offer more than one color you know. And you won’t drive this beast because you don’t like the green shade it’s in? Do you like cars or something that matches your purse? Pick one.
