Ford may be a bit late to the extreme muscle car party, but the wait was well worth it, as the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 is the brand’s most powerful road-legal car ever.
According to the official numbers released by the Dearborn automaker, the 5.2-liter, supercharged V8 produces a whopping 760 horsepower and 625 pound-feet (847 Nm) of torque on premium fuel. As a result, it’s also “the most power- and torque-dense supercharged production V8 in the world”, according to Ford.In terms of power alone, the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 slots between the 707 hp Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and 791 hp Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. It also has 110 horsepower more than the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. However, the bowtie brand’s model has an extra 25 lb-ft (34 Nm) of torque. For comparison, one of the most coveted modern supercars, the McLaren 720S, has 710 hp and 568 lb-ft (770 Nm) of torque produced by the 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8.
