The Ford's most fiercest road-legal car

One of the American auto giants, Ford has recently released the fastest street car they have ever had. The car has the ability to produce power like a supercar.

The car is the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. The car dubbed as the 'Super Snake', will be released on the American market starting this fall. By bearing the company's big name certainly the car called the All New Shelby GT500 will offer toughness when driven fast on the road.

The toughness of this car can not be separated from the engine it carries, namely a 5.2-capacity V8 supercharged aluminum alloy handbuilt engine that is mated to a dual-clutch transmission so that it can spit power up to 700 horsepower, similar to a supercar.

This machine only takes 11 seconds to make the car accelerate from rest to 96 kph. Even said the All New Shelby is claimed to have good performance on the corner and has the best safety system thanks to adopting the Ford GT and Mustang GT4 Racing Programs. It's not wrong if this car was consecrated as the most speeding car ever produced by Ford, in the form of Mustang and street-legal car.

"Being a supercar, the All New Shelby GT500 was born as the 6th generation that offers an exotic impression," said Global Director of Ford Performance Vehicle Programs, Hermann Salen Bauch in an official statement.

"This model will have a lighter weight. In addition, we will apply this toughness as the standard performance of American cars with a V8 engine," he added.

Still about the toughness of the engine it carries, the All New Shelby GT500 engine carries aluminum alloy with the intention of saving weight and reducing vibration. Besides that there is one important note, this car is the first Mustang that carries dual clutch transmission. This transmission carries the TREMEC 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. That means there is no manual transmission offered on this car.

Jim Owens, Ford Performance Marketing Manager said the DCT system can get more engine performance than can be done by humans who need to shift the gears manually. But, Ford Performance Chief Engineer, Carl Widmann does not rule out the possibility of applying a manual transmission to this car in the future.

"Right now, we are only attached DCT, we hear feedback, we are really close to Mustang lovers, and we always listen to what our customers want, right?" Widmann said as quoted by Roadandtrack.
There are no rear seats on the Track Pack version of the GT500, but they do come on the base model. The interior of the vehicle is unique since there is no manual option. Instead, there is a seven-speed DCT for quick shifts. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2vN6CIh)
The car offers several driving modes, namely normal, weather, sport, drag, track, and can be seen through the Track Apps. To harness the power and torque, the most powerful Mustang is also equipped with the latest active chassis technology, completed with Michelin track-bred tires and Brembo brakes.

Furthermore, the Shelby GT500 also utilizes updated suspension geometry, a new electronic power steering unit, and lighter coil springs at the front and rear. This latest generation MagneRide active suspension is mated to the latest drive mode technology from Ford Performance. So that makes the Mustang has better track performance and driver control.

About the legs, this car offers 20-inch rims with a rear wheel 0.5 inches wider. Adjustable exposed carbon fiber body problems, track wings and GT4 woven fiber strip dividers with integrated diving fields. The rear seat is removed to reduce weight. Large angled grid openings and muscular hoods are designed to give the best aerodynamic systems inspired by modern fighter jets.

A wider front fender and easel for the Shelby GT500 seat are made 20x11-inch specifically proportional to the rear fenders that hug up to 20x11.5-inch wheels. The rear spoiler also has new standards and updated composite materials.

Despite being able to accelerate quickly, interior comfort is also important for this American auto manufacturer. One of them uses the best compositions. Like using carbon fiber on each side, until the Dark Slate Miko suede door panel with accent stitches. Furthermore, the Recaro racing seat also has a safety harness installed on this car.
Shelby GT500 uses a 12-inch full-color LCD instrument, while the premium B & O audio system Play 12-speaker with high taste is available in its dashboard. All of this is controlled via the 8-inch SYNC 3 touch screen featuring SiriusXM and FordPass Connect.

For new color choices are also offered such as Red Hot, Twister Orange and Iconic Silver. Pictorial lines are also available for the all new Shelby GT500.
With the advent of the Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500 on the road in the near future, of course it was intentionally intended to be a serious and fierce challenger to its competitors such as the Chevy Camaro ZLI and the Dodge Challenger Hellcat. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTOMOBLOG | DRIVEZING | ROAD&TRACK]
