The same day that Ford issues a statement explaining how virtual tests with supercomputers and 3D printing techniques have helped its designers to make the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 the most aerodynamic and the most powerful street-legal Mustang ever, we learn that the company wanted to set a speed limit for its newest monster. Yes, considered to be Ford's most powerful production car ever created, the infernal beast, unleashing more than 700 horsepower thanks to a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 fueled by 93-octane super petrol, will be restricted to a top speed of 290 km/h, according to Car and Driver website. Admittedly, the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will be able to go from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds and complete the quarter-mile in less than 11 seconds, but we all know that it would be great if we can see this 700 hp monster reaches a top speed of more than 300 km/h. Ford seems to have made this decision for practical and economic reasons. Apparently, from the point of view of development and engineering, the difference between the maximum speeds mentioned is quite significant. The blue-oval company has thought it wise to invest in other performance-enhancing systems, such as a dual-clutch gearbox with acceleration control that makes gear changes in less than 100 milliseconds. or a large adjustable rear wing borrowed from the Mustang GT4 racing model. The 290 km/h speed limit puts the new 2020 Shelby GT500 behind the 797-horsepower Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye and even the 650-horsepower Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE, but Ford hopes that in the end, its muscle will be able to prove that new Shelby GT500 is the real new King of the road. Equipped with the carbon fiber set for the track, including the GT4-style spoiler and custom Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires and some solutions to lighten the weight of the car, the GT500 will be able to produce up to 550 pounds of rear downforce. Another great news is after announcing in January that the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will be marketed this fall, the manufacturer said in its latest release that the beast will be available from the summer. Pricing of the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is unknown at the moment, but if you are excited, just prepare your wallet right now!
