Ford’s 760HP Mustang Shelby GT500 Is Capable Of A 0-100-0 Mph In 10.6 Seconds

One of the most anticipated performance machines of the year and Ford’s most powerful street-legal car ever, the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500, is capable of some neck-snapping performance. The automaker claims that it can sprint from 0 to 100 mph (0-161 km/h) and then back to 0 again in a mind-blowing 10.6 seconds.

The icing on the cake is, obviously, the 5.2-liter, supercharged V8, making 760 hp and 625 lb-ft (847 Nm) of torque. The 7-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission built by Tremec, can change up a gear in only 80 milliseconds, quicker than a blink of an eye.

“The range of brute-force drag acceleration, seamless road shifts and amazingly smooth shifts on the track further highlights how the soul of the Shelby GT500 is elevated in our most advanced Mustang ever”, said Ford Performance chief program engineer, Ed Krenz. “Effortlessly handling the 760 horsepower is our segment-first Tremec dual-clutch transmission, with an advanced control system that enhances GT500’s five drive modes to deliver a driving experience once reserved only for exotic supercars.”

Furthermore, the hardcore pony car features the largest front brakes of any domestic sports coupe, with 16.5-inch rotors (419mm). Finally, there are optional carbon fiber wheels shod in Ford Performance-spec Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. The five drive modes include ‘Track’ and ‘Drag’, and the driver can select them from a switch mounted on the console, improving throttle response and tuning the transmission for faster gear changes.

The Dearborn-based car maker previously announced that the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 needs 3.5 seconds to accelerate to 62 mph (100 km/h) and can run the quarter mile in under 11 seconds. All of this for a reported starting price of just $5 shy of the $74,000 mark in the U.S., with the destination charge and gas-guzzler tax included.

    This is the most exciting Mustang in ages. This type of power with a dual clutch transmission must be epic to drive. That said, I think the C8 is the better buy if the price is close.
