Ford and Ford Performance Racing School are teaming up to offer a complimentary track attack program exclusively for owners of the new Shelby GT500.

The base curb weight of the 2020 GT500 has been largely theoretical up until this point, with references to it in the dealer eSourceBook which noted the approximate curb weight to be 4,225 pounds.

Luckily, that figure seems to have been overstated since one 2020 GT500 owner just weighed it on a certified scale and revealed that it weighs 4,080 pounds for the base vehicle, which means that the Track Pack GT500 will likely be sub-4000 pounds.
