How are people proud that this car is faster than a Cayman GT4 with 360 hp more? That's a whole mid range performance car lmao.

Also 100-200 is slower than my C7 z06 with headers and intake and not even faster than a 170 hp weaker and 8 year older Ferrari 458 speciale lolololol

Mustang cels can't compete i literally cant stop laughing

I'm guilty of overcommenting on this page, so I'll take a break from straight line performance metrics and jump right to the lap times! ;D

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1U2PVjLqTUjpSK21tb_NUXkTaqdy0qTsYJg_Dd9ME-fI/edit#gid=0

I made this spreadsheet widely readable for all petrolhead audiences; this means I have the Mustang counter on the right of the three pony car counters as well as on the bottom.

Usually the Mustang doesn't corner as well, but the Handling Pack GT500 is as expensive as a fully loaded ZL1 1LE. The CFTP GT500 however is as expensive as a fully loaded Redeye Widebody, so that explains the performance differences. Averaging best CFTP and best Handling Pack times, 7:15-7:16 around the 'ring is reasonable (ZL1 1LE is estimated at 1 sec slower than GM's verified test time, @7:17).

Contrary to its size and straight-line performance, it shouldn't lap more than 2 seconds behind the McLaren 600LT and Porsche 911 Turbo S because of its amazing set of 305- and 315-wide front and rear track tires.

The GT500 is absolutely more stable than the Hellcat Redeye, but it's not as good aerodynamically despite its nimbler size. The GT500's estimated drag coefficient rating is technically 0.355 Cd, but only when it's cruising at city-friendly speeds. Due to downforce and tire safety, the car starts to feel "slower," which is the symptom - but not the cause - of the higher drag at autobahn speeds. However, if you do opt for the CFTP variant, the rating remains at 0.48 Cd no matter what.

The GT500 weighs 4216 lb, while the GT500 CFTP weighs 4015 lb; but the GT500 CFTP needs 550 lb of downforce at 180 mph, making for a total of 4565 lb, and that's not even including a driver or their dog.

Drag coefficient: 0.48 Cd (at highly illegal speeds)
Frontal area: 25.65 sq. ft. (including mirrors)
Curb weight: 4216 lb (+165 lb for driver)
Top speed (limited): 182.xx mph; rounded up to 183 mph (verified @JBPG)
= ~540 rwhp to reach top speed = ~635 hp to the crank
Top speed (delimited): 200.xx mph; rounded up to 201 mph
= ~710 rwhp to reach top speed = ~835 hp to the crank

Ford underestimated the top speed to keep the GT500 as inexpensive as possible. In actuality, its bodywork is far more expensive to work on than that of the ZL1 1LE and the Hellcat Widebody.

Full disclosure: Physical stats are estimates of my own; I refuse to take magazine tests and manufacturing claims word-for-word. I do not take liability for any errors.

TL;DR: The Cobra-emblem-wearing Shelby GT500 version of the Mustang is faster only by 20 mph (actually, 18 mph) without the limiter. Even then, it doesn't even reach the conservatively estimated "top speed" of 203 mph posted for the Dodge Redeye triplets (including the Widebody-exclusive Charger sedan).

The reason why the Shelby is slower is because Ford is not currently aware that Dodge underrates the Hellcat motors at a certain power/torque "rating," as opposed to Ford with its Predator motor.

The ACTUAL top speed of the S550-edition GT500 is 214mph (345kph), which is around the same as a DBS, a 720S, an F8 Tributo, a 991 GT2 RS, and an 812 Superfast.

Ford decided to govern the car at 180mph (290kph) for insurance reasons so that insurance companies don't overcharge Shelby owners. It got some Cobra owners to imply it's only a Mustang and insurance companies are aware of the governed top speed.

Mustang GT officially competes with LT1/SS Camaro and the 392-powered MoPars, but insurance charges owners equally to V6 Camaro and 345-powered MoPars. Likewise, GT500 is a ZL1/ZL1 1LE/Hellcat/Redeye/Jailbreak/Super Stock/Demon rival, but it's treated favorably, more like the GT's rivals which top at 180...

Ford knew that if they had governed the car to 190 or 200, owners would be within 5 mph of the actual top speed in no time. They also strictly limited the car to 180 to avoid overlapping with the ultra-limited-production (Ford) GT.

I just saw this get GAPPED by 1.68 seconds and just under 22MPH in the 1/4 mile? Stock vs stock to another nameless car.

Now usually I'm not fussed or bothered. It is what it is? But I was MIGHTY upset at what I witnessed. Shaking my head!

Upside is, guess I like the car that much! Ahahaha!

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


User avatar

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.

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?
