The approaching 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will officially roll in 2020 as we had an opportunity to see the latest spy shots. This supercar is much sportier than the GT350 model and new updates are bringing even more sportiness. Chevy Camaro ZL1 and Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat be aware, as the new Shelby GT500 comes with the very unique approach and newest dual clutch transmission.
Mustang rides on its sixth generation since 2013, it rides on a new platform and independent rear suspensions. You must admit it, that is something. Furthermore, the GT500 model will get plenty of updates. For the start, the exterior design now looks even more aggressive and the interior will be very modern and probably based on the GT350 model. Supercharged V8 is still an option, and even the twin-turbo engine could make a production. The updates are coming for this car, and the dual clutch gearbox is perhaps the biggest one yet.
2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Gets an Angry Face
After we take a look at the latest spy shots, it is clear that the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will get more muscles. This car will look very aggressive and the best part is that the Blue Oval carmaker will offer an aero package. Generally, the design is very unique, however, some styling cues are taken from the GT350 model.
The front end gets a new bumper with a rounded splitter that looks big. Of course, on the grille, we will see the famous “cobra” badge once again. Under the camouflage, bigger bumper intakes are present and the front grille gets a small revise. New side skirts are on the offer and some more exterior colors will be available. Additionally, expect new body stripe combinations.
The interior of the all-new 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will borrow plenty of interior stuff from the GT350 model. It is yet unknown if the whole interior will be based on this model. Unfortunately, the spy shots didn’t provide any interior info. We can expect the same dash and door panels as in the GT350 model, but we can also expect plenty of unique features. That includes a new steering wheel and instrument cluster. The latest infotainment system is available too. When it comes to seats, they are very sporty, the upholstery is unique, along with the contrast stitching and “GT500” badging.
700-plus Horsepower Engine
Perhaps the biggest question about the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is “what lays under the hood?”. Some sources are predicting that this muscle car will drop the twin-turbocharged engine. For that reason, a supercharged V8 could be in the offer. If that happens, expect a new V8 engine from the Blue Oval carmaker. The drivetrain could be a 5.2-liter V8 that is under the GT350’s hood. The most likely outcome for the GT500 model is a 700+ horsepower output which is astonishing. More importantly, this muscle car could outperform rivals such as Chevy Camaro ZL1 and Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.
New Dual-Clutch Transmission
Perhaps the biggest innovation about the upcoming 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 could be a new transmission. It is an all-new dual-clutch gearbox that will offer insanely smooth shifting. So, what is the story? A leaked video on the YouTube shows us camouflaged Shelby GT500 driving around the rainy streets. The car experts immediatelyrealize that the new transmission is in the offer, and it is a dual-clutch. Furthermore, the experts are saying that the sound is providing us a very quick shifting that also sounds smooth.
