The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 and its 760 horsepower and 625 lb-ft of torque off the assembly line is showing up the aftermarket and tuning companies that could otherwise claim to build a more powerful Mustang. However, the folks at Roush Performance may be putting their say into the matter, as the company just teased what will be its most powerful Mustang muscle car ever built.
For starters, only 60 will be built, which means they’re likely to command a steep premium once things are made more official. Additionally, being that it will be the most powerful Roush Mustang ever, there has to be be over 710 horsepower under the hood. Will it be more powerful than the 2020 Shelby GT500? We like to think it will. After all, this variant will be called the Jack Roush Edition Mustang, and we’re sure that the company’s founder and owner wouldn’t put his name on a car if it absolutely wasn’t the ultimate example of what’s possible.
Power aside, the Jack Roush Edition Mustang will have its own calibrated magnetic ride suspension, signed racing seats, fender vents, special forged wheels, an active carbon fiber wing and other aerodynamic upgrades. But we’ll have to wait for the 2019 SEMA Show in November to see the full thing.
As Roush puts the finishing touches on its super Ford Mustang, the 2020 Shelby GT500 will soon hit the market, and will carry a C8 Corvette-eclipsing MSRP with C8 Corvette-eclipsing horsepower. It will be capable of going for 0-100 mph and back down to zero in an incredible 10.6 seconds. Main contributors to this number are the super sticky Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, the new Tremec TR-9070 DCT 7-speed dual-clutch transmission that can shift in 80 milliseconds, 16.5 inch front rotors (the largest of any muscle car currently on sale), and of course, 760 crank horsepower and 625 lb-ft of torque from the GT500’s awesome 5.2L supercharged V8 engine. 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 0-60 times are still mum.
