2020 Ford Mustang GT500 Covers The 0-100-0 Test In 10.6 Seconds

With 760-horsepower, the new 2020 Ford Mustang GT500 is the fastest of all pony cars.

By the way, that 0 to 100mph, not 100km/h. And then, back to not. Better explained, the new 2020 Ford Mustang GT500 is so freakin’ fast and powerful to it’ll launch to 100mph from a standstill and then back to a standstill in 10.6 seconds. Again, that’s 0 to 160km/h and back to a full stop in 10.6 seconds.

Let’s put this into perspective, shall we? A capable and quick VW Golf R with the DSG transmission will reach 60mph in about 5 seconds. By our estimates, this means the GT500 is clinching the 60mph mark in roughly 3.5 seconds before it hits 100mph between 2.5 and 3 seconds later. Ford won’t specify the number but we think we’re pretty close.

This insane kind of performance is made possible by the boosted 5.2-litre V8. Specifically, the V8 sports a 2.65-litre good for 12 psi of boost, which all said generates 760-horsepower at 7,300 rpm and 625 lb.-ft. of torque from 3,000 rpm all the way to the redline. Channeling all this power to the rear Torsen limited-slip differential with 3.73 gearing is a 7-speed DCT transmission – this kind of speed can only aided by an automatic transmission.

As for stopping power, the GT500 is shod with gargantuan 16.5-inch front disc rotors and some meaty Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.

As such, the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is the most powerful full-production Ford product ever. It’s actually more powerful than the brand’s supercar, the Ford GT. In fact, at 760-horsepower, only the Dodge Challenger Redeye and Demon are blessed with more power.

We are obviously, excluding hypercars, which cost 3 or more times more than the $73,995 USD Mustang. Canadian pricing is set at $94,675.
