GT500 Officially has 760hp

After months of not knowing, the power figures for the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 are finally here. The supercharged V8 will put out 760 horsepower and 625 lb-ft of torque. Basically, itís enough to drag down the moon.

Back in January, we learned that the GT500 would have at least 700 horsepower, which would either have put it dead-even or above the Hellcats. It seems now the Ford has more power than even the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. Itís only five horsepowers more so who is even counting, but itís still five more! These kinds of small differences matter during lunchtime recess discussions.

The GT500 is powered by a 5.2-liter, supercharged, cross-plane crank V8. Itíll send all that power to the rear wheels, while the all-new, Tremec seven-speed dual-clutch will have a job attempting to sort it all out.

Ford claims in its press release that the new GT500 is the most powerful street-legal car that itís ever made. How usable are all 760 of those horsepowers? Itís unclear, but Iíd bet that burnouts, donuts and screaming tires are all part of the standard features.

More power than a Corvette ZR1, Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari California, Audi R8...


We need to wait for the price. IMO, will have 6 figures.

Even if it is under 6 figures dealer markup will push it there.

I think 760hp is enough, I'm surprised some people think it needs 800+ horsepower.


Off-topic: The Base GT500 actually looks great.

I think it is safe to say that GT500 is much better looking than the Hellcat.

Or is it just me.



One thing should be certain, it will weigh far less than that heavy mopar, and thus, should perform much better.

I'd compare the GT500 to the Viper rather than the Hellcat. This is going to have serious racetrack chops.

The GT500 looks better to me, but Im biased. I will say though though Challengers are a bit menacing though. Had a green one behind me yesterday and couldnt stop looking in the mirror.

The Challenger has aged really well considering almost no sheetmetal changes have taken place. My bias pulls me toward the Mustang for sure though.

The Viper was never a great sports car, it was a two seat muscle car in reality.

I would say it has aged well since the 70's, from where they literally lifted the design from.
