After two years of development, Shelby American has unveiled its limited edition 2020 Carroll Shelby Signature Series, delivering a rarity (and price) worthy of the late founder’s name.

Only 50 of these special edition vehicles will be offered, each one has a widened body with high quality aluminum fenders to create a “square” footprint so the one-piece forged Monoblock wheels and tuned MagneRide suspension could maximize the vehicle’s raw power.

The metallic ram air hood, front fascia and bodywork was sculpted to both tame the air and dramatically drop under hood temperatures, which is necessary since the Whipple supercharger pumps out 825 horsepower and utilizes the fully functional ram air hood to evacuate hot air around the supercharger system.

Ford Mustang took the top spot for the sporty midsize car segment in the 2020 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study, which measures problems experienced during the past 12 months by original owners of three-year-old model-year vehicles.

After taking the GT350R and GT500 CFTP for back-to-back comparisons in street driving, our friends at Steeda have decided to see how the two Ford Performance machines would fare on the autocross course.

Naturally, the autocross course is more suited for cars with tight cornering and overall handling abilities so the two vehicles were a lot more evenly matched than it might appear on paper.

Check out the GT350R vs. GT500 CFTP autocross video inside.

Our photographers just spied what could be a prototype of a refreshed Bullitt Mustang for the 2021 model year, although a few oddities keep this one a mystery for now.

The test vehicle is wearing what appears to be the Bullitt’s signature Dark Highland Green paint color with a completely camouflaged front clip and heavy cladding over the grille, front bumper and extending to the intakes, suggesting major design changes for the front end. The car sits on large 19- or 20-inch wheels which seem to be silver versions of the current performance package 1 wheels. Out back, we see a covered up dovetail spoiler and dual exhaust test pipes.

Is this a 2021 Mustang Bullitt refresh or is Ford simply using this to test the upcoming refresh of the Mustang GT or other special variant (i.e. Mach 1)?

Stock 2020 GT500 Dynoed at 760HP

February 21st, 2020

One lucky M6G user just dynoed his stock 2020 Shelby GT500 and got some very impressive numbers.

Member dirty-max took his 100% stock 2020 GT500 to a local shop and did 3 pulls on the dynonameter and found that his car made 760HP non-corrected, and 726HP SAE — on the same dyno that his friend’s Hellcat Redeye made 713 HP, a vehicle which apparently holds the current stock Hellcat 1/4 mile record.

Check out this stock 2020 GT500 dyno making 760 horsepower!

The 2020 Shelby GT500 boasts an astoundingly quick 0-60 sprint (clocked at 3.3 seconds) and 0-100-0 in 10.6 seconds in large part due to its Tremec TR-9070 7-speed dual clutch transmission, and now here’s an inside look at how it’s able to do that.

Tremec has just released a video revealing how it designed the TR-9070 to be able to deliver its 80-milliseconds fast upshifts while delivering more consistent power and torque. As Tremec states, the TR-9070 delivers the efficiency of a manual transmission and speed of a racing gearbox in its new 7-speed dual clutch transmission.

Coastal Chassis Dyno in Tampa, Florida, teamed up with Revan Evan to strap the 2020 Shelby GT500 to the dynonameter for some baseline and tune dyno results.

The 2020 Shelby GT500 used for this test had less than 200 miles under its belt when Sam at Coastal Dyno began revving its engine to 8,000 RPM.

Check out the video to find out the 2020 GT500 dyno results.
