Last month, we showed you a teaser image of the upcoming 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 that will take on Chevrolet’s Camaro ZL1. Today, our sister site, Ford Authority, obtained spy photos of the upcoming GT500 that show some aggressive exterior detailing.
The new Shelby GT500 is rumored to have an astounding 772 horsepower from its supercharged flat-plane-crank V8 engine, though recent rumors have suggested that the motor might be of the cross-plane-crank variety. Either way, that would be 122 ponies more than what’s currently on tap from the range-topping 2018 Camaro ZL1 (though Chevy might surprise us with an even more potent Camaro in the not-too-distant future).
But despite the headline-making difference in power, what truly matters is how effectively a sports car puts said power to the ground. Hence, we have a feeling that – despite the Shelby GT500 having a higher power rating – Ford will have a hard time transferring all that power to the ground, thanks to the Mustang’s sub-par architecture (when compared to that of the sixth-gen Camaro).
See the complete gallery of 2020 Shelby G500 spy pictures at Ford Authority. Despite the fact that people on our sister site are Ford fans, they’re pretty nice and have promised to be cordial to our visitors, so don’t be shy and head on over for the gallery.
