2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 “Venom” Is A One-Off You Can Win At A Raffle

There’s no denying the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye with the Widebody option takes a step back for the 2020 model year because Ford has the hotter muscle car in the guise of the Mustang Shelby GT500. This particular car – the Venom as it’s called – is a one-off that will be raffled to benefit the JDRF in the organization’s fight against type 1 diabetes.

The Ford Motor Company confirmed that it’s giving away the car for the sake of charity, and JDRF aims to sell 75,000 tickets during the annual fundraiser. The first-place raffle winner will take the Venom Shelby GT500 home, simple as that, while the second-place winner will be treated to a VIP experience for two people at the 2020 Daytona 500.

So how much for the ticket? Each costs 10 dollars, and you’re able to buy as many as you want until November 10th. The raffle will take place in Dearborn, Michigan four days later, and the winners don’t need to be present at the raffle to win.

It should be mentioned, however, that the first owner of the Venom is responsible for income taxes – approximately 25 percent of the vehicle’s value. Also worthy of mentioning, the Venom’s winner also has to tax, license, and insure the vehicle as per the U.S. legislation.

Packing 760 horsepower from 5.2 liters of displacement, the Shelby GT500 also happens to be the torquiest Ford road-going passenger car to date thanks to 625 pound-feet. The Predator V8 is connected to a Tremec seven-speed DCT as standard, helping the ‘Stang shoot to 100 then brake to zero in the span of 10.6 seconds.

The Venom is specified in a metallic clearcoat with over-the-top racing stripes, the Carbon Fiber Track Package, rear-seat delete option, and Mustang GT4 track wing. “Not only does this raffle provide an opportunity to win the most powerful production Ford ever, it also speaks to how Ford strives to make people’s lives better,” said Dave Pericak, director of enterprise product line management at the Ford Motor Company.
