We’ve had to make do with the Ford Mustang GT350 for years now. Don’t get us wrong, it’s an incredibly good car. But with Hellcats and Demons and all sorts of Camaros putting out easily north of 600 horsepower, we knew Ford had to be cooking up more. This is the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 with more than 700 horsepower.
The pictures of the new GT500 popped up first on the Instagram page of user sinister_lifestyle:
Other pictures from slightly different angles have also started showing up on Instagram:
The new GT500 is rumored to have around 720 horsepower, which should be good enough to rip anyone’s face off in a straight line, though a source told us the figure is even higher, with a rumored 770 horsepower and 743 pound-feet of torque from a supercharged V8. That would make it the most powerful street-legal Ford of all time.
But better yet, this doesn’t just look like some muscled-up drag strip monster.
This thing looks like it can rip your face off left, right, and six ways to Sunday. It’s not a muscled-up drag strip monster, it looks like a Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R with steroids injected straight into its veins. The chin is vast, the fenders huge. The wing properly sticks up into the wind, to help stick the raging beast down to the ground. All that special aero work should help it top 200 mph with that kind of power.
Look for it to “officially” debut at the Detroit auto show in January. Until then, we’ll be chomping at the bit.
