Ford has truly outdone themselves with the fastest Mustang to ever grace this planet. Designed to compete with the likes of the American Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye and the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, it can easily overpower and outmanoeuvre both and looks great doing it. It made its debut at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year along with its sibling the GT350, which will both be available together for the first time in nearly 50 years.
Ford blends some of the styling of the 2015 Mustang with an all-new look that includes a huge double grille for greater air intake. The large grille is offset by a larger hood vent to balance pressure inside the engine compartment. This combination gives the 2020 GT500 50 percent more airflow and a level of downforce that has never been accomplished before on any Mustang. It is also equipped with wider fenders to accommodate 20X11.5-inch wheels. For 2020, the Shelby has a new rear spoiler as well as a diffuser for heat dissipation. As far as colours, if you do not want to settle for the plain old black or white, Ford has made three new colours available, Red Hot, Twister Orange and Iconic Silver, all available with painted stripes.

What Makes it GO
With a price of about $71,000 US ($104,600 AUS), obviously these muscle cars are not for everyone. If you want fuel economy, this Mustang is definitely on the wrong end of the spectrum. If you want to go fast, have fun and drive as if you do not have a care in the world, then yes, this is the car for you. They are fast, fun and definitely the fastest production Ford on the planet.
