    2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Leaks With Supercharged 5.2L V8, Seven-Speed DCT
    BY MICHAEL GAUTHIER | POSTED ONJANUARY 13, 2019
    If you just can’t wait until opening day of the North American International Auto Show to see the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, you may be in luck.

    Images of an apparent brochure have surfaced on Facebookbefore spreading to forums like Mustang6G and sites like Jalopnik. While we can’t confirm the brochure’s authenticity, it looks like the real deal as the pictures match up with previous images that we leaked from a dealer presentation last year.

    We already knew that the range-topping Mustang would have a supercharged V8 that produces more than 700 hp (522 kW / 709 PS), the pamphlet reveal the engine is a 5.2-liter cross-plane crank. This could be a modified version of the Shelby GT350’s 5.2-liter flat-plane crank V8.

    The only gearbox mentioned is a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) from Tremec driving the rear wheels. Speaking of which, the base GT500 will ride on 20-inch rims wrapped in specially-developed Michelin Pilot 4S high-performance rubber. The wheels are backed up by a high-performance Brembo braking system with six-piston calipers and 420mm discs up front, while four-piston calipers and 370mm discs are found out back.

    That’s just the tip of the performance iceberg as the brochure suggests the GT500 will also have a MagneRide adaptive damping system, a carbon composite driveshaft and a lightweight magnesium strut tower brace. Buyers will also find engine, transmission and differential coolers as well as a “high trail knuckle for improved steering response.”

    The performance upgrades are also visible on the outside as the GT500 has an aggressive front splitter with prominent Shelby badging. Designers also installed a modified front fascia, mesh grille inserts and a massive rear wing. Other notable highlights a unique rear diffuser and a ventilated hood with a removable rain tray located underneath.

    Buyers looking for something more aggressive will reportedly be able to order a Carbon Fiber Track Pack that appears to include 20-inch carbon fiber wheels, a carbon fiber rear wing and carbon fiber interior trim. The package also includes leather and suede Recaro front seats and the removal of the rear seats.

    Since Tremec is the rumored provider of the C8’s DCT, might, as Tremec’s site list the ability to provide product for all different types of drives, this be a variant of the ME’s?

          That is one hell of a great question. If it does, which I would not doubt, it might not be until its next generation, I think however that the Camaro will probably retain a manual trans option.

                    Same blower as the ZR-1, too. Any word on price? This feels like a very expensive car for the high school's Head Cheerleader.
