2020 Ford GT 500 Review Canada – Ford’s been bugging Shelby GT500 for months. We have seen a short video and a single shot from above a car with a large wing and a vent hole in the center of the hood. Beyond that, it’s all been speculation. We believe that the V8 supercharged can generate up to 720 horsepower and that the engine could be combined with a dual-clutch transmission. Spy shots show that the car could be equipped with a factory anti-tip cage. Today, in a bottom-up distributor in Las Vegas, the supercharged Shelby was finally photographed in the flesh and blood.

The photo was published in Sinister_lifestyle’s Instagram account and was collected by our friends at Jalopnik. While we cannot confirm that the car is really the GT500, the image seems real to us. The photo was also labeled geographically at Ford Motor Company in Dearborn.
As expected, the car looks like a version of Shelby GT350. The front and rear fenders look significantly wider. The entire front side has been opened to improve air flow. Take a look at those tires, too. It’s hard to say for sure, but it looks like Ford is out to equal the 305-section front rubber of the Camaro ZL1 1LE.
Any other detail is difficult to distinguish. There are only two photos, both from the front of the car, so we can’t see what the inside is like. We still don’t know what’s driving the GT500.
Still, rumors abound about the GT500, with the latest pointing to the output figures that eclipse the 700 pony brand thanks to a massive blown V-8 engine. Some rumors even speculate numbers around 770 horsepower and 743 pounds-feet of torque, but we believe it can be a bit ambitious even for the impressive GT500. Either way, we’d like to see the maximum speed reach the mark of 200 miles per hour, even with that huge wing attached to the trunk.
However, unlike a traditional straight-line lead sled, this thing will also have the right things to corral, all thanks to its massively sticky tire specifications, advanced suspension bits and a rear end Independent. The big Aero should certainly help him turn, too.
An official debut is expected early next year at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Well, we’re not here to spoil it, so make sure you watch the video. The result may surprise you and we just want to point out a couple of things. First, the GT500 didn’t have the best start, but he was able to catch up in the middle of the race. Secondly, it is obviously with a manual gearbox and we have to admit that the driver does a good job of changing gear.
In addition, the GT500 seems to be a modified example, as we do not know a stock GT500 able to do quarter-mile times and less than 11 seconds. Wow, that final number could have given you more details than you should know before you saw the video. Anyway, look at it and have fun.
The Blue Oval has promised more than 700 horsepower (522 kilowatts) and availability in 2019, and some rumors say that the production will be 750 hp (559 KW) to 7,500 rpm of a V8 supercharged of 5.2 liters. We’ll have to wait just a few more weeks to see it, but we’re excited.
