The Mustang Shelby GT500 Specs Are Out, Will Make 760 Horsepower

We always figured the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 would be powerful, now we have confirmation.

The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 specs are out, and they are everything you thought they would be. Ford confirmed this morning the Shelby GT500’s supercharged V8 engine will make 760 horsepower and 625 pound-feet of torque.

That makes the new Mustang Shelby unveiled earlier this year at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit faster than the base Dodge Hellcat engine, but it’s missing 37 horsepower to reach the Hellcat Redeye’s power. Still, 760 horsepower puts the Shelby GT500 among the most powerful cars in the world.

The GT500 is obviously the most powerful and most extreme Ford Mustang you can buy. The Mustang Shelby GT350 is next in line with 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque followed by the Bullitt with 480 horsepower. The Mustang GT makes 460 horsepower with the entry-level Mustang’s four-cylinder EcoBoost sending 310 horsepower to the rear wheels.

Pricing hasn’t been announced for the GT500, but for a car like this that’s the last thing that matters. Availability will be a much greater problem for those who want one, and expect dealerships to charge a significant premium over MSRP.
