The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Will Start Under $75,000
July 2nd, 2019
Ford released the performance numbers on the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 last month and now they have released other crucial numbers...the price. And it will be more expensive than both the ZL1 and the Hellcat.
The base cost will be $73,995 after the $1,095 destination charge and $2,600 gas-guzzler tax. If you decide to go all out and take all the options, it'll run you upwards of $90,000.
A substantial part of that charge would be an $18,500 Carbon Fiber Track package. The package includes bare carbon fiber 20-inch wheels wrapped with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires that are a half-inch wider in the rear (11.5 inches). You also get a GT4 track wing with an integrated dive plane, front splitter wickers, and a rear seat delete. Painted racing stripes cost an additional $10,000.
If going all-out isn't what you're looking for, the Handling package includes a Gurney flap on the standard rear spoiler and adjustable top mounts. It's only $1,500, but you can't have it and the Carbon package both.
The Technology package will run you another $3,000 and includes a B&O sound system, a 6-way power driver seat, heated mirrors, Sync 3 with navigation, BLIS and cross-traffic alert.
If you need a refresher on the performance numbers, the all-new 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 will produce 760 horsepower and 625 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful street-legal Ford ever – with the most power - and torque-dense supercharged production V8 engine in the world. Shifting that power will be a Tremec seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox with no manual option available as of yet.
Ford says it will run the quarter-mile in under 11 seconds. It's 0-60 mph time will be a little over three seconds. The car will feature a carbon fiber driveshaft, MagneRde dampers, Michelin tires (Pilot Sport 4S tires optional), big Brembo 16.5-inch rotors with six-piston calipers for stopping power. An active valve exhaust system plays the soundtrack from the 5.2-liter V08 while inside features a 12-inch LCD digital instrument cluster.
