I had a friend tell me that each of these GT500s is worth US$2,500,000 in Europe and that only five of them were shipped there, therefore he said he wouldn't even "touch them." He thinks they're more expensive than a C7 Corvette ZR1.

Many mistakes in GT500 page, Could you move Virginia Raceway to CFTP package page, also euro speedway into CFTP package.

the 0-200kph and ¼mile trap speed don't add up

Since we have an own page for ZL1 1LE handling package, may be we should make two different pages for GT500 and GT500 CFTP?
We already have plenty of laptimes for both trims, and track performance differs dramatically.

As already said: 1:33.84 at Laguna Seca - that's just one second slower than a Huracan Evo and faster than an R8 V10 or Nismo GT-R:

So the GT500 was just dubbed the Road & Track Performance Car of the Year. The field was a bit weak this year due to Covid-19 as several top contenders couldn't make it. But apparently the Mustang didn't only win because of that as it is seriously good. It beat the BMW M8 Competition, the second quickest car, by far on the Lime Rock Park track, almost three seconds to be exact (on a track that takes around a minute to lap):

The GT500 is based on the newest mustang, but the headlights are from the pre-facelift model, because of the track widening. Interesting, isn't it?

This is one heavy car compared to a regular Mustang. What happened? It has carbon fiber parts, and I doubt a huge supercharger is very heavy. It might be the dual-clutch, of course.

Why every Ford Mustang has this stupid top speed limiter?
Safety reasons?
Or may be something else?


User avatar

I don't understand Ford (or Shelby). They own the GT supercar and put a V6 in it. While putting 700 hp in a Mustang

Motor Trend magazine just did a test comparing this to the C8 Corvette with and without the carbon track pack, and the corvette on or not on performance tires.
Track: Virginia International Raceway
GT500 w/ Track Pack: 1:56.30
GT500 without Track Pack: 1:59.68

C8 Corvette w/ track suspension: 2:00.69

Motor Trend Magazine, March 2020 issue, article is “Wait, What?”

You can run 9.70's by making some minor modifications to the GT500...

Odd that both the 3.7 sec 0-60 and 1/4 mile times have already been beaten online. Several places rolled 3.5 sec 0-60 times and sub 11 sec 1/4 miles at 133/34 mph. Are these times produced by Ford? If so I bet it's without the carbon fiber track pack. While it only lowers the weight by a 150-ish lbs the carbon fiber wheels lessen the power needed to the wheels...

One of my fav cars out today. Think about it. You can get a Mustang with more power then a NASCAR and even an F1 car without the electric boost.

2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Laptime: 1 minute, 55.72 seconds vs
2019 Porsche 991.2 911 GT3 RS Laptime: 1 minute, 55.57 seconds at Chuckwalla with Randy Pobst driving. No mention of tyres used?

According to Ford, and confirmed by testers on a drag strip, 0-60 is in 3.3 seconds, and 1/4 mile is in 10.6. If you’re looking for instrumented tests, Car and Driver got 0-60 in 3.6 seconds, and 1/4 mile in 11.4 on a non-prepped surface.

Should we separate the standard GT500 and the GT500 with the track pack seems like there is a notable difference in performance.

Interesting the 2020 stock Mustang Gt500 just put down a 10.4 : 1/4 mile - interesting to see what it does on drag radials. Although Ford understate the power With 705 rwhp equates to over 800hp (825hp) more accurate.

The 2019 GT500 did a 1:59.68 for Standard pack and Carbon Fiber track pack did a n Viper ACR beating 1:56.30 and has almost reached the Corvette ZR1 territory at VIR Full course track, I am sure the new GT500 wont beat the Corvettes that much on slower tighter tracks, still those numbers are really good for a car that weighs a whopping 4200 lbs , some who have tracked the GT500 in streets of Willow-Willow Springs say the stock GT500 can do 1:25.xx-1:26 almost C7 Z06 levels of lap times without any modifications.

Looks like same gen car with yet another facelift. But that's not too bad - looks good.

All the money went into Match E.

Ford make a new GT with V6 Twin Turbo and a Shelby with a 5,2 liter V8 Supercharged. No sense...

Do most people like the way this car looks? Am I in the minority for not liking it? I think it looks a little ridiculous and not in a good way. The gt350 is designed so much better imo. I just wish it came with an automatic :(
