Default 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Meets Its Ancestor At The Drag Strip

Back in 1967, the regular Ford Mustang Fastback used to cost $2,500. For $4,200, though, you could have the Shelby GT500, with its 7.0-liter V8 pumping out 355 horsepower.

Compared to its ancestor, the new Mustang Shelby GT500 looks and feels like a spaceship. It enjoys a massive 760 HP produced by a 5.2-liter, supercharged V8, which makes it the most powerful street-legal Ford ever. Nought to 60 mph (0-60 mph) takes 3.5 seconds and it can run the quarter-mile in less than 11 seconds.

Channeling the output to the rear wheels is a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission that can change gears in a mere 80 milliseconds and is tuned for both road- and track-use. The old Shelby GT500, on the other hand, rocks a 3-speed auto, and will do 50-60 mph (80-96 km/h) in first gear. If you know what you’re doing behind the wheel, then you could run the 1/4-mile in 14-15 seconds, at well over 90 mph (145 km/h).

To put things into perspective, TFLClassics checked out the classic GT500 during the new car’s media launch. And since its value is estimated at $110,000, the organizers took no risks and put an experienced driver behind the wheel to demonstrate what the 52-year old ‘Stang can do. Despite not seeing the two go head-to-head, it’s a nice history lesson that shows how far cars have come over the last five decades – and, at the same time, makes us wonder where will we be 50 years from now, with the electric and autonomous revolution that will shake up the auto industry.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.
