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.

Nothing happened, just understand that the GT500 is based on a 25k USD Ford Mustang platform, there has been no chassis widening, no chassis strengthening or nothing of that sort, for all the strengthening they had to use additional metal braces, additional, under body reinforcements , sway bars etc, which all adds weight
The chassis predominantly is steel unlike Camaros Alphas
But I must give credit to Ford for tuning and making such a heavy car go around tracks this fast without overdoing the camber like how ZL1 1LE did

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

For this car, Its a couple reasons, Something about building a new tranny, Tire load of the downforce levels, And they wanted to make a compromise between high speed and track cooling issues, For GT mustangs its pretty much down to gearing, Pre 2010 Mustangs were a stability issue, Among other things, But limiting any car for a 'Green' issue is beyond retarded.

Often the speed limiter is when manufacturers reduce list price by choosing cheaper tyres with lower speed index. If you don't live in Germany, you probably don't care about topspeed anyway.

Ok, that's fair.
But their rivals (Chevrolet, Dodge) always had faster top speed. Doubt that Camaro or Challenge have much better aero or tires.
I don't think 180 mph is slow, but if vehicle can go faster let it go.

And this car without CFRTPRRSST package definitely can go faster 180

Definitely, Given the technology of todays companys i dont buy it, I dont see this having more DF then any of the other 700bhp supers, So i call the df part bs, But i agree, no point in giving a car huge power if your just gonna limit it, No limiting any cars in my opinion, If thers a performance reason...fix it

Tires (Do remember the GT500 weighs over 1800 kgs) Brakes (Again 1800+ kg and no Carbon Ceramics, so its a challenge)
I seriously wish Ford put this motor on the middle of a chassis, the GT500 chassis does no justice to that insane motor

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

Sorry, I accidentally disliked you. Using mobile. Anyway, Throttle House does the best car reviews on YouTube, hands down.

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 :(

It's an awesome car, but it's useless now that the C8 Corvette's out. S*it.
