    Here’s the ’20 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 fitted with a track pack spoiler. Earlier prototypes have been caught without a spoiler, while the official Ford teaser showed a rather large wing.

    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 cross-plane crank engine mated to a DCT transmission, although there are also rumors of a NA 7.0L V8 (which is farfetched at this point).

    Horsepower should ring in above the 707hp Dodge Hellcat models, although it may fall short of the 808hp Demon (probably will come in somewhere around 740 hp).

    GT500s will also get a carbon-fiber dash (as seen in earlier shots), 20-in. wheels and tires and 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.

    Are those your words or Fords? Last semi "official" word from Ford was no release/unveiling until some time next year.

    Yes, it definitely is much better looking. I like the overall styling. I'm becoming more and more optimistic that the new GT-500 is going to be a home run for Ford and for GT-500 fans.

    Looks like a 2015 S550... maybe Ford is admitting the update is hideous.

    I think most of the people who will ultimately by the GT500 aren't going to care.

    If the new GT500 comes in around 4200-4300 lbs. and only puts out 740 hp, they probably should.

    Maybe they think the other options look like ASS and prefer the styling of the GT500 even if it's slower??? I hear the aftermarket is there to help those with performance issues...

    I seriously doubt it's going to be that porky. If so, Ford is pretty much wasting their time trying to make it a performance car. It'll be as bad as the Hellcats. That would be a HUGE fail. For reference, the GT350R can get around VIR 12 seconds faster than a Hellcat, 2:51 vs 3:03. If that's what we get out of the new GT500, Ford might as well not even release it.

    Double play and you're out? Demon powns this thing? LOL. You really need to hold off statements like that until the GT-500 is actually released. Just sayin! o_O
