Over the course of the past few months, the Motor Company has provided a few teasers of the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. First, we got a short video with some close-up views of the car in action and more recently, we got a shadowy front end shot of the muscle car that is promised to have more than 700 horsepower.
This past weekend, FoMoCo rolled out their newest teaser, this time giving us a look at the next Shelby GT500 Mustang from above. The image was initially shared with the car heading “upwards”, but we have rolled the picture 90 degrees to the left, simply because it fits a little better on our website. In either case, this is the best look that we have gotten of Ford’s next monster muscle car.
Bird’s Eye View
The newest “teaser” of the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 really isn’t a teaser at all, as this is just a good old undisguised overhead shot of the upcoming muscle car. Key features to take note of in this image include the hood, the front fascia, the wheel openings and the rear spoiler.
Up front, the hood has a huge vented area that appears to sit on a raised center section of the hood – presumably added to make room for the supercharger. We can also see what appears to be a pair of carbon fiber dive planes – one at each corner of the front fascia – as well as the accentuated upper grille.
Along the sides, the new GT500 appears to have flared wheel openings, making plenty of room for the wide tires that will be tucked under all four corners. These flared body panels aren’t quite as elaborate or as large as they are on the new Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, but this Mustang definitely appears to have a much wider figure than the Mustang GT.
Finally, out back we can see a large carbon fiber wing that will help provide gobs of downforce at high speeds – and with more than 700 horsepower on tap, this new Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 should be capable of incredibly high speeds.
Unfortunately, we still do not know when the new GT500 will arrive, but with more and more of the car being revealed, we are keeping our fingers crossed for a reveal in LA later this year or in Detroit next January.
