Whether driving down the street, track, or drag strip, you'll be part of history when you're sitting behind the wheel of the all-new Mustang Shelby GT500, the most powerful street legal Ford ever. With a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine capable of producing more than 700 horsepower, this Mustang is the pinnacle of Ford pony cars and an impressive feat that would stun Mr. Shelby himself.

For the all-new Shelby, Ford engineers actually created a new powertrain, one which produces unparalleled levels of power and torque, and mid-three second 0-60 mph capability. The 2020 Shelby GT500 delivers the best Mustang track times, as well as the best cornering and the largest brakes of any domestic sports coupe.

With its hand-built supercharged 5.2-liter aluminum alloy engine, the sixth-generation Mustang channels power and torque via its adoption and adaptation of the Ford GT supercar's dual-clutch transmission. This 7-speed dual-clutch transmission shifts smoothly from gear to gear in under 100 milliseconds. This hyper-precise shifting allows the new Shelby to accommodate multiple drive modes, including: normal, slippery, sport, drag and track.

Its groundbreaking performance numbers coupled with its aerodynamic design—this Shelby was literally inspired by modern fighter jet aircraft—have created the highest-ever lateral acceleration from a Mustang. There's a lot more to say about its power, it is after all the most powerful street legal Ford ever (did we already mention that), but the all-new Shelby's interior deserves mention, too.

Drivers will be delighted by the Shelby's racing inspired cockpit complete with available premium materials and unique finishing touches, including:

  • exposed carbon fiber instrument panel
  • Dark Slate Miko suede with accent stitching
  • Recaro racing seats
  • 12-inch full-color LCD instrument cluster
  • high-performance custom-tuned 12-speaker B&O® Play premium audio system
  • 8-inch SYNC® 3 touch screen featuring SiriusXM and FordPass Connect

...just to name a few. There's a lot to look forward to in the all-new Shelby, not just the fact that it's the, ahem, most powerful street legal Ford ever.
