    This the ’20 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, and although interior shots reveal a manual transmission on this prototype, it’s just a clever disguise to hide its true intentions as exclusive video confirms a DCT (PDK-esque) transmission.

    The Mustang-based GT500 will build on the GT350’s performance capabilities. It’s thought that the production version will have a supercharged 5.2L flat-plane crank (although it sounds like a cross-plane crank in the video) engine mated to a DCT transmission; however, there are also rumors of NA 7.0L V8.

    Horsepower should be more than the 707hp Dodge HellCat models, but may fall short of the 808hp Demon (probably should ring in somewhere around 740hp).

    The GT500 will also get a carbon-fiber dash, 20-in. wheels and tires, unique styling tweaks in the form of a reworked front fascia with larger air intakes, a massive hood bulge with heat extractor vents and a side diffuser that stops mid-door.

    Expect to see the GT500 later this year.

    Why does it have the pre-facelift headlights?

    Why do people keep worrying about it having "the old style" headlights?? Maybe it's because the new lights are hideous and Ford knows it, so they want the car to be a little more attractive with the older headlights?

    Finally, a photo that put a smile on my face. My hope and expectation have just risen a couple of notches.

    What’s exciting you the most regarding this fine picture good sir? I’m very impressed with the front shoes honestly. I’m a bit tired so I’m not seeing much else to really chime in on

    DCT? With the predicted power, I'd be really surprised to see a DCT type transmission. Almost all of the other manufacturers are switching to torque-converter automatics because the DCT cannot reliably handle the power being thrown at them--and it's nowhere near 700+hp with respectable torque.


    I sincerely hope the power numbers are correct, and I sincerely hope ford puts a DCT in the GT500!
