Only 50 will ever be made.
With a 5.2-liter supercharged V8 producing 760 horsepower and 625 lb-ft of torque, the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is the most powerful road-going Mustang ever made. If that still isn't enough power for you, Shelby American, which also manufactures the 800-hp Mustang Super Snake, has just unleashed its new Carroll Shelby Signature Series Ford Mustang that's even more powerful than the mighty GT500.
Presented at the National Automobile Dealer Association Show in Las Vegas, the new limited-edition Mustang packs a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 tuned to produce a whopping 825 horsepower. All that power is sent through either a six-speed manual transmission or 10-speed automatic. As the name suggests, Shelby American's new Signature Series Mustang is a tribute to company founder Carroll Shelby.
Shelby American has been developing the car for the last two years and worked closely with Ford Performance and other partners to create a car worthy of Carroll Shelby's name.
"The limited edition 2020 Carroll Shelby Signature Series Mustang is the ultimate combination of exceptional design and amazing brawn," said Gary Patterson, president of Shelby American. "From its refined, yet functional styling to its poised handling and awesome power, this is the most polished performance car in Shelby American's history. With its performance capabilities, this Shelby is the automotive equivalent to a champion ultimate fighter who looks as good in a tux as he performs in the ring."
Other upgrades include Shelby-specific tuned suspension, a high flow exhaust, and new brakes, while a widened body gives the Signature Series Mustang a more menacing look.
"The body was widened with high quality aluminum fenders to create a 'square' footprint," Vince LaViolette, Shelby American Vice President of Operations and Chief of R&D, explained. "This allows the one-piece forged Monoblock wheels and Ford Performance tuned MagneRide suspension to maximize the incredible power churned out by the supercharged 5.0-liter motor. The metallic ram air hood, front fascia and bodywork were all carefully sculpted to both tame the air and dramatically drop under hood temperatures. The fit and finish are unbelievable, making it as stunning at rest as it is in motion on the road or track."
Only 50 examples of the limited-edition 2020 Carroll Shelby Signature Series Mustang will be built, which explains why it will cost you at least $127,795 - that's around $57,000 more than the Shelby GT500 and around $92,000 more than the Mustang GT it's based on.
