    Today is going to be a pretty busy one for those with a huger for 2020 GT500 news. Last week Ford held its first official Press Drive for it's latest Snake Car in Las Vegas. Those in attendance were sworn to secrecy until today. In this thread we're going to try to aggregate all the best articles and videos in one place for you to enjoy:

    Or it does with building a bigger bad ass with cobra jet. Slicks and skinnies should not be legal on the street anyway.

    Either should allowing any nimrod with the $75K burning a hole in their pocket to buy a 700+ HP car.

    Looks to be well received and should be exciting to see on the streets.

    So true. Ford cares more about hybrid'ing up the ****ing segment leader (Mustang) than they do dominating in a straight line with a warranty. Sad, really.

    I agree. It is sad Ford doesn't care like they use too. Like some others have said they only care about mobility and hybrid/electric vehicles now.

    But this Gt500 will perform.

    Not a bit. Skinny tires up front and slicks on the back are not safe for the street especially with 700+ hp.

    exactly my point. Dedicated drag cars should not be street legal.

    2020 Shelby GT500 Mustang - [email protected] MPH?

    There's little doubt it will be a great car, but I'm always skeptical when "private test" results are cited as gospel. Most articles I've seen claim 0-60MPH in the low 3-second range and 1/4-mile in the high 10-second range. Indeed, most of the passes in the associated video show roughly 10.9 seconds at about 130MPH - which is certainly respectable.

    Somehow, though, they achieved 10.6 seconds @ 133MPH in a "private test"? Maybe, but I'd like to see it replicated/confirmed in a less "private" setting.

    Ford says 10.7

    Evan went [email protected] in +935 da Florida air.

    I bet it has a [email protected] at -1000 da atco/etc where the demon went 9.65/140.

    Put racegas/tune, and drag radials on the gt500 and it’s probably pulling 9.75/140 in those same conditions.

    There are many demons that have yet to run 10’s or 9’s because of the track location, variables like driver etc.

    Someone doesn’t buy nike’s because they think the shoe makes all the difference, but they know it’s a good enough shoe to take on a basketball court, the game is theirs to play.

    We’ll see high 10’s in magazine tests with the gt500 imo the launch is all they have to get down now, ~1500rpm 75-90% wot at launch and slip to full throttle. Not too hard. Stage shallow and let it eat.

    Nonsensical comment is full of nonsense.

    Gavin Newsom is proud of you!

    True. There are always "hero runs" as well. (Not saying the 10.6 @ 133MPH is a hero run, that's impressive. He also did run a 11.8 @ 123 mph in the 2013 GT500, which is a manual shift car, back in the day.)
    I figure the car to run low 11's/high tens in the hands of the regular "Joe Schmoe".

    Those runs at 10.9 at 130 are all in Vegas at 4200 elevation where modified pulleyed and sticky tires Hellcats ran slower at Vegas.
