Spy Shots: 2020 Shelby Mustang GT500 Prototype?

Full Disclosure: Ford has not confirmed anything. “What we know” of the rumored 2020 Ford Shelby GT500 is all speculative and sourced from Autoblog, MotorTrend, CJ Pony Parts, and Mustang6g.

The latest update regarding the rumored 2020 Ford Shelby GT500 comes in the form of a video posted by Mustang6g that shows the elusive prototype Mustang at idle and shifts from an automatic transmission. The rumored GT500 is said to be available for the 2020 model year with over 700 horsepower.

Interior spy shots show a six-speed shifter. However, the upshifts in the video are too quick to be done manually. Most likely, the prototype has the new 10-speed automatic. It’s thought that the production version will have a supercharged 5.2-litter flat-plane crank engine; however, there are also rumors of a naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V8.

It’s a safe bet the car will come with more horsepower than the Dodge Hellcat – the 13-14 GT500 came with 662hp – but will it have more power than the 808hp Demon?

The spy shots include hints of a carbon-fiber dash, 20-inch wheels and unique styling tweaks in the form of a reworked front fascia with larger air intakes, a massive hood bulge with heat extractor vents and a side diffuser that stops mid-door.

That said, a senior Features Editor at MotorTrend, posted what looks to be a July 2018 issue with the GT500 on the cover. While Ford has confirmed nothing, we are anxious for MotorTrend to drop the July issue and get a look at the elusive car.
