HELL YEAH IT'S HERE!!
The new 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will make 760 horsepower and 625 LB-FT of torque from a 5.2 liter supercharged V8. It's goverened at 180 miles an hour, and all of this is according to Car & Driver, I'm not making this up. It's high on horsepower, but a little down on torque. Well, that's just the way superchargers work.

Really dude? A Supercharged Z06 has 650/650.

aaayyy  5d ago @hostboy

Yeah, I'm surprised too. I thought it push out maybe 720 horsepower, but I'm guessing it originally made that number, so Ford decided to not release the horsepower number while they worked on the engine to push out more power to seem more competitive to the Hellcat Redeye. 760 is also unprecedented, because all theories pointed towards it having either 720 or 772. I'm guessing 760's the best they could do with a 5.2 liter V8, and even then it's amazing how they were able to push out that much power. The ZR1 has 755 horsepower coming from a supercharged 6.2 liter V8, but I'm guessing the massive amount of power comes from the 4 valves per cylinder ( the ZR1's LS only has 2 ) and the supercharger, which is apparently new and improved, in the way that's it's HUGE, at 2.65 liters, bigger than some car engines.
This car will be a monster. It has a dual clutch transmission, also unprecedented for a muscle car, and 100 more horsepower than the ZL1, but with weight less than the Hellcat (probably) . The only problem is torque. The ZL1 has MORE torque than the GT500, despite it having 110 less horsepower. And the Hellcat Redeye makes 707 lb-ft of torque, despite it's iron-block old school engine. Of course, we know the GT500 will be faster. Ford's quoting 0-60 in "around" 3.5 seconds and a "under 11 second 1/4 mile", so it'll about match the ZL1.

Could you change power and torque to 662bhp @ 6500rpm and 631lb-ft @ 4000rpm

I would immediately if i could.

uptownfunker  4y ago

0-80 kph: 2.8 s
0-100 mph: (which I'm still waiting for to be changed to) 7.7 s

BTW: This car is really awesome! I'd compare this to a ZL1 Camaro or even the new SRT Hellcat.

I kept requesting the admins to update the performance figures; the power and torque figures haven't been edited in four years, so I guess the original rating is true.



User avatar

uptownfunker  4y ago

0-300 kph: 31.0 s; impressive or not, it's a ponycar with musclecar additude!

..Hello people where have you been? Its obvious that Power is measured from the front area of the car when the wind hits it, Having the wind resistance measure how much force is hitting the car in turn measuring how much power it makes, Who ever herd of measuirng power from a car not moving? Thas like saying Japanese food isnt delicious..


User avatar

Shaggy  5y ago

The power is not measured at the rear wheels, it's measured at the flywheel, horsepower is lost through the drivetrain, only the majority of it actually gets to the wheels.

The new 5.0 gt makes 367 rwhp,not 390hp!


User avatar

BR2+  6y ago

I don't see this thing hitting 136Mph, Not even in the 10s, 131Mph is THE highest I would guess, But only with the best results. Has the power and torque, But it also has the big weight and horrid gearing.


User avatar

137 mp/h = F12's 1/4 mile trap speed achieved by Qt Magazine.


User avatar

saxy  6y ago

136mph would be quite high of a trap speed... higher than any F12 trap speed


User avatar

mr Bonneville  6y ago

11.23 @ 136 MPH STOCK (no kidding!!)

It is known that the output of this car is overrated. With a terrible weight distribution and skinnier tires, it wouldn't be able to beat a ZL1 or a Z/28 at smaller tracks. Nordschleife, maybe, but definitely not the Top Gear Test Track or the Laguna Seca.


User avatar

BR2+  6y ago

I wasn't sure If either the cars picked WERE one of the cars that actually did the lap, So I wasn't gonna bring uo there was a passenger in the car, I dunno, Maybe those cars could have been test cars, or they were getting shots of the car and track, don't know how accurate any of that is, thas why I said "Maybe"

Also I did recently just notice those differences, 9Good Eye) The front grille isn't of the 2014 Model, nor are the exhausts, SO why is there 2014 trim pieces on a 2012 Model?

Which further intrigues my curiosity, Either a modded 2012 Model was used in the lap, Or those cars shown WERENT the car that lapped in 7:39. I do think more evidence needs to be found, Very curious know, but also very skeptical.

The GT500 that ran the Ring time actually "May" not have been stock..

it also had the "advantage" of an extra passenger


User avatar

Hamcee  6y ago

why do they have the old gen rearlights?

instead of these

also, the pipes are totally different? is that even the current gen model?

I dunno if either of these cars were there for testing or if one of them was the actual car, But it seems like, The interior may have something that isn't stock, dunno if its safety equipment or something else, Also on the red car theres Air Dams, Cant say about the tyres though, But those front ones look kinda suspect.

But I don't really know.


User avatar

BR2+  6y ago

There not no, You cant get them from the Ford parts bin.

Aftermarket, Not stock, I "Think" there prolly DRs, Dunno what the difference is in grip compared to the MPSS it has on stock. But its a fun fact to know it would get a similar time.


User avatar

Hamcee  6y ago

are those tires actually an option from ford or purchased additionally?



User avatar

Sergio Marchionne  6y ago

Because it was run on super tight slicks


User avatar

Mental  6y ago

Why was the manufacture Nordscheife laptime of 7:39 deleted?

The time is impressive, but not unexpected. GT500 should have been close to the ZL1's track performance.


User avatar

BR2+  6y ago

I understand.

But given the situation, You have to treat EVERYBODY you don't know here AS a "Potential" Troll, Atleast everybody that's not.. "Noticeable"

You know, The simple crap posted, BS claims, BS articles, Downplays, etc
