Ford announced Wednesday more details for the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500, the carmaker’s most powerful street-legal car yet with 760 horsepower and 625 lb.-ft of torque.
The Detroit automaker debuted the car in January, saying it could go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in the “mid-3 second range.” The GT500 features a 5.2 liter V-8 engine and is projected to be able to complete a quarter mile in under 11 seconds.
The new Mustang is not available for order yet, but it will be in dealerships this fall, according to spokesperson Daniel Barbossa. The third-generation GT500 also has a Carbon Fiber Track package without a rear seat to reduce weight.
