Ford Shows Off 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500

Ford Motor Company has offered up an official first look at the upcoming 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500. The look comes by way of Motor Trend, who got exclusive access to the image for its July issue.

Thankfully this isn’t your typical shadowy teaser shot. The birds-eye view shows the very muscular GT500 in all of its glory. Unique heat extractors can be noted from the hood, while the shot also confirms the car will have a wider stance, similar to the GT350. A unique splitter and wing appear in the image as well.

Ford has not officially stated what will power this new beast, but a supercharged version of the GT350’s 5.2-liter flat-plane-crank V-8 is the obvious choice here. That engine will likely end up being paired with Ford’s new 10-speed automatic transmission.

The 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 is expected to launch sometime next year. Given Ford has already offered up an official look, the reveal is likely imminent.

    The press shot looks slightly deeper but it could just be the lighting. Like both!
