But wait, there’s more! If you want to unlock the potential of the Shelby GT500 to the fullest, prepare to pay up $18,500 for the Carbon Fiber Track Pack. This optional extra includes carbon-fiber wheels, a rear-seat delete, and splitter wickers. An exposed carbon-fiber instrument panel is also available for an additional $1,000, the Technology Package is $3,000, and the Handling Package adds another $,1500 to the retail price.

In case you’re wondering, the grand total works out at $97,995. Ladies and gentlemen, the Ford Motor Company never fails to make those jaws drop in awe! For reference, the EcoBoost retails at $26,670 excluding taxes for the 2020 model year.

As opposed to the previous generation, the Shelby GT500 switches to a 5.2-liter supercharged V8 based on the Voodoo V8 in the GT350 and GT350R. This engine is good for 760 horsepower and 625 pound-feet as standard, and the aftermarket will certainly tune the hell out of it. Hennessey Performance Engineering could crank out 1,000 ponies without too much of an effort, but the rear tires wouldn’t like that at all.

The order guide for the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 – available as a .pdf at the end of the article – lists Michelin Pilot Cup Sport 2 tires that measure 295/35 by 19 inches up front and 305/35 by 19 at the rear. Dodge uses 305s on all four corners, and just like the ‘Stang, the tires boast 11 inches in width at the rear. In either case, launch control is a must-have assistant if you don’t want to spin the rear tires at launch.

On that note, the order guide lists “TBD” in the fuel economy section. Knowing how thirsty the GT350 is without a supercharger, the GT500 should be a thirsty beast.
