Check out the GT500 pace cars inside!

Watch the 2020 GT500 run with the GT350 at Grattan Raceway. An unofficial timing seems to show the GT500 potential breaking (or tying) a track lap record!

In this video, GT500 are seen blitzing around the track where the red GT500 appears to lap in approximately 1:22. If so, this would beat the current record of 1:22.1 held by the Dodge Viper ACR.

Here is the window sticker for VIN#00001 of the 2020 GT500. 

This one comes nearly fully loaded (except for Handling Package), featuring the optional Carbon Fiber Track Package and Technology Package. As for cosmetic upgrades, it will sport painted side stripes and yellow accents.

No prices are listed but the Carbon Fiber Track Package costs $18,500 and the Technology Package will cost $3,000. View the full window sticker inside.

This very first 2020 GT500 was auctioned off at Barrett Jackson for $1.1M back in December.

Check out this impressive GT350 build by site member LAPTIMZ inspired by and incorporating parts from the Mustang FP350s, a turn-key race car designed by Ford.

The Shelby FP350S was developed to compete in the Trans Am and SCCA racing classes, and LAPTIMZ’s GT350 certainly looks like it’s straight off the race track. Here is the full list of extensive mods currently:

This creative 2020 GT500 billboard was recently spotted at the Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit.

The billboard reads “100% Chance of Clouds” while bellowing out smoke to mimic the burnouts that the GT500 will easily be able to do with its 760 horsepower and 625 lb-ft of torque! Watch the cool billboard in action here.

If you didn’t catch it yet, the online configurator for the 2020 Mustang is now online!
