Updated January 2019:
Ford engineers are putting the final touches on what is likely to be the next generation Mustang car. This car will be known as 2020 Shelby GT500 and is expected to fill the gap that was left by the fifth-generation Shelby GT500. Based on the recent photos, this car is likely to be the strongest model that the Ford company has ever produced.
2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 Exterior
The exterior design of this car reveals a slightly broadened front track and a new rear diffuser. The rear side of this car resembles that of Shelby GT350R model but has a larger wing that has been attached to the lid. Also, the front fascia is framed by a leading edge that is carried by assertive and shiny front fenders. it has extra wide fenders fuse well with the front end of the car. Finally, it will have a stack of carbon fibers in its rear wing, wheels, and ceramic brake rotors.
With so much power underhood, GT500 need a good grip, and it gets it over Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires with 20 inches wheels (front 11.0-inch wheels and back 11.5-inch wheels). Optionally you could get Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, also splitter wickers, carbon fiber GT4 track wing and “the beauty” 20-inch carbon fiber wheels. Furthermore, to stop this strong beast, they put a large 16-5-inch(42 cm) two-piece rotors with a bigger and stiffer Brembo six-piston calipers
New Shelby GT500 Colors: Red Hot, Iconic Silver and Twister Orange (available Painted stripes).
2020 Shelby GT500 Interior
Although much details have not been revealed about this car’s interior, you should expect a premium cabin typical to a Mustang model. We also expect some changes on the dash including an upgraded instrument panel and technique aero improvements. A new starter button is part of the cosmetic improvements that are expected in this car’s interior. This beauty is expected to have a timer control system that makes it possible to keep the noise levels low when entering or leaving home. This car doesn’t have a rear seat, because the manufacturer wanted to lower weight.
The race machine will have 12-inch LCD instrument cluster and an 8-inch SYNC 3 touch screen with SiriusXM and FordPass Connect.

The new 2020 Shelby Mustang car is expected to use a handly build aluminum alloy 5.2-liter supercharged V8 engine. For better cooling of this beast, Ford builds 2.65-liter roots-type supercharger, with intercooler system-air to liquid. Its engine is expected to generate a horsepower of over 700 hp. The coupe will use a 90-degree crankshaft similar to that of the Hellcat and ZL1 model. The photos reveal a TREMEC 7-speed dual-clutch transmission shifter, the manufacturer claims that this will be quickest-shifting system ever. There will be coupled drive modes like normal, weather, sport, drag and track. Everything will be available over selectable Track Apps, like line-lock and launch control. From 0-60 mph it goes for 3,5 seconds.
Price and release date
The 2020 Shelby GT500 is likely to be launched somewhere in 2019 as a 2020 model. It is then expected to hit the showrooms within the same year. The starting price for the basic model is expected to be around $70,000.
