Ford Teases 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 Supercharger

The Ford brand may be laying low at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show, but they are still making some future product noise this week with a teaser of the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500. Showing off the car’s massive supercharger, we’re all getting a slight tease to what’s coming in January.

Shown above, the teaser depicts the car’s Eaton supercharger packing 2.65-liters of displacement. The unit is expected to spin out 12 psi of boost to an alleged 5.2-liter Predator V-8 engine. Of course, Ford isn’t going into any specifics yet, but rumors earlier this year suggested the GT500 would have about 700 horsepower. Power is rumored to flow through a Tremec TR-9007 seven-speed DCT transmission.

Ford has only stated officially that the 2020 Shelby GT500 will be “the most powerful street-legal production Ford ever built.” This week Ford has also stated the car will have “over 650 horsepower.”

Also shown in the teaser shot is a confirmation of its reveal date, which is January 14th. This means the Shelby GT500 will bow in Ford’s backyard at the Detroit Auto Show.
