2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is most powerful Mustang ever

The fastest Mustang gets faster. The 2020 fastback Shelby GT500 gets a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine with a whopping 700 horsepower. The most powerful street-legal Ford ever built can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in around 3.5 seconds, with a quarter-mile time below 11 seconds, according to the company. It has a seven-speed automatic transmission that Ford says shifts faster than any manual gearbox. Ford said it transferred aerodynamic and chassis technology from the Ford GT and Mustang GT4 racing cars to improve the cornering. To cut weight, the car has a carbon-fiber driveshaft and aluminum cylinder heads. Inside, it gets a 12-inch instrument screen and available Recaro racing seats. The GT500 arrives in showrooms in the fall. Price and gas mileage weren't announced.
