Vaughn Gittin Jr. was Behind the Wheel
The 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 is the most powerful street-legal Ford ever produced, and it had to be showcased at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Vaughn Gittin Jr. was behind the wheel, and after a smokey start, he launched the GT500 up the tight course.
The car comes with a 5.2-liter V8 that’s supercharged to a whopping 760 hp and 625 lb-ft of torque. It can do a 0-60 mph sprint in just 3.5 seconds and will do a quarter-mile run in just 11 seconds. The car is as powerful and quick as some supercars. It’s designed to put more expensive cars in their place, and it will look good while it does it.
Ford has slapped a $73,995 price tag on the Mustang Shelby GT500. That means the car is a little more expensive than its biggest rival from Dodge, the Challenger Hellcat Redeye. It has less power, too, but its 0-60 and quarter-mile times are extremely similar despite the power deficit.
Gittin Jr. appears to have no issues with the car as he sprints it up the course. The car hits triple digits at more than one point as it rockets along. It looks awesome in green, too. You can watch the full video below.
