  • GT 500 goes 10.66

    With a driver who had no clue what he was doing, and no helmet. Idiot.

    The greatest sound in the world is a Rolls Royce Merlin over 100 inches.

    Im driving this 18 Shelby GT 350 until my C8 gets here. Not as fast as that 2020 and the 350 has the high winding small block FPC engine. 8250 red line.

      The video will show how the C8 DCT will shift ..pretty fast .Hold a paddle to down shift to the lowest gear. Hold both paddles to rev it. Cool stuff for sure. Too bad you can’t buy one without a ADM.

        Ford created the $500K Ford GT quickly. But the Mustang GT500 took forever to design and produce. Is a greater accomplishment. Such a great car at affordable price. Congratulations to Ford Motot Company.

          Yes and the 2020 Shelby GT500 is built in a ford factory not in Canada by Multimatic Corp. Those aren’t ford employees building the Ford GT.

                      Great car. Awesome performance. I like them...I admire them.

                      Just never enough to buy one. This new gt500 is the best yet.

                      i do have a reservation for the mustang mach E for my wife ...if it works out timewise...ill buy ine.

                      ford in my opinion made my life easier by naming it Mustang mach E.

                      my wifes very brand conscious. I could have gotten her to a corvette crosstrek but since none is available the mustang mach E was an easy spin for her.

                      the girls want crossovers that have brand cache...the mustang mach E will allow for the profitability to continue to evolve the gt500 so its a good thing.

                      i think the dct in the gt500 was a stroke of genius.

                        Very Interesting Indeed! May have to check one of these out. Cannot help but think the AWD HP version of the C8 will be similar if not better in the .25.....
