The new 2020 Shelby GT500 engine has been confirmed as a 5.2L crossplane engine with a supercharger. This combo has been confirmed to make over 700 horsepower and judging by Ford's easter eggs, we are going to guess it will be putting out about 755 horsepower
The new Shelby for 2020 is loaded up with all of Ford's latest technology including a few new upgrades that are never before seen. These include:
In true Shelby fashion, the new GT500 will be getting a large supercharger to help put down over 700 horsepower for the 2020 Shelby GT500. Here we see a leaked photo of the supercharger and we can only guess that this will be similar to years past. We will make sure to keep you updated with the latest news regarding the new blower!
With great horsepower comes great stopping power. This is especially true with the new 2020 Shelby GT500 brakes that includes large 6 piston red Brembo brakes in the front and 4 piston calipers in the rear for the ultimate stopping power.
While heavily camouflaged, the new snake takes alot of cues from the previous S550s with the addion of what looks like fender vents and a wild spoiler unseen on S550s. This gives us the indication of the track capabilites of this car which could shed some light on brake & suspension grades to compliment them.
Although the interior of the GT500 has not been released nor spied, we are not able to have a glimpse at what the engineers over at Shelby have cooked up, but knowing their history, we can assume a custom steering wheel, Cobra logo seats, and more Shelby inspired pieces will be present in this new S550.
Thanks to the good guys over at Mustang 6G we were able to see some spy photos of the Shelby on the street.
