The Most Powerful Mustang

Mustang Shelby GT500

The Shelby GT500 2021 is not only the most powerful Mustang, but it is also the most expensive. The Carbon Fiber Track Kit (20-inch carbon-fiber wheels, aerodynamic add-ons, stickier Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, and other weight-saving measures) unlocks the car's full performance value, but it costs 25% of the base price.The 2021 Shelby GT500 is a marvellous muscle car and a tremendous sports car. Well, it has poor fuel economy and costs a lot for a Mustang–especially with the exorbitantly priced Carbon Fiber Track package–but it is a remarkable muscle car and a spectacular sports car.

Engine & Performance

The supercharged V-8 of the 2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is accompanied by the athleticism of smaller and lighter sports cars. The Shelby's supercharged 5.2-liter V-8 engine is at the forefront of the action, producing an exciting soundtrack from its bazooka-like exhaust pipes. Shelby GT500's the most powerful engine ever crammed into a Ford production vehicle. The engine, appropriately dubbed Predator, is a supercharged 5.2-liter V-8 with 760 horsepower and 625 pound-feet of torque. Through a foresightful seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, whose enormous power twists the rear wheels. At the most recent running of our annual Lightning Lap competition, the Shelby GT500 showed that modern muscle cars would record faster lap times than more exotic vehicles like the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 and Lamborghini Huracán Evo. Ford reports a 0-60 mph time of about 3.3 seconds, which is quicker than the 3.5 seconds claimed by the Camaro ZL1. The GT500 will be something better than a dragster.

The 760-hp V-8 in the Shelby GT500 is the exact opposite of fuel economy. According to the government, it can only get 12 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway. On our 75-mph highway fuel-economy survey, the GT500 averaged 20 mpg.

Mustang Interior

The interior of the Shelby Mustang is very similar to that of the mainstream Mustang. Despite having a similar platform and passenger and cargo capacity, the GT500 offers options including carbon-fiber instrument panel trim and more aggressive, Shelby-specific Recaro front buckets, in addition to a long list of attractive standard features. A configurable 12.0-inch fully digital instrument cluster, dual-zone temperature controls, leather-trimmed front seats with heated and cooled cushions, and a six-way power driver's seat are among the features of the GT500. The typical aluminium dashboard trim on the Shelby can be replaced with a portion made of exposed carbon fibre. The rear seats can be removed to save weight, but this includes the Carbon Fiber Track kit, which is incredibly costly.

Connectivity and Infotainment

The Shelby GT500's infotainment interface is very close to that of the standard Mustang: an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Ford's Sync 3 technology. The volume and tuning functions of the stereo can be controlled with physical knobs in addition to steering-wheel control and voice commands. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a subscription-based Wi-Fi hotspot are three desirable standard networking features. For those who want to add their own beats to the supercharged V8's roaring soundtrack, a 12-speaker B&O sound system is available.

With swooping, angled shapes, a bulging vented hood, and plenty of winglets, the GT500 would be impossible to confuse for anything but the king of the Ford stable. Splitter wickers and an expressive fascia in the front resist subtlety, making it clear that downforce and air channelling are the primary goals of the style decisions. Broad fenders house 20-inch wheels, which can be ordered in carbon fibre, as well as LED daytime running lights and the Shelby cobra insignia. A diffuser adds more presence at the rear, but the giant wing, which comes in two sizes, is the most visible feature.

Features for Driver Support and Safety

Unless you consider a powerful braking system and launch control to be essential driver-assistance features, the most powerful Mustang has a very short list of features. The only important safety feature is:

  • Blind-spot tracking and rear-cross-traffic warnings are also options.

Coverage for Warranty and Maintenance

The limited and powertrain warranties offered by Ford are standard, but they are comparable to those offered by Dodge and Chevrolet. Only the bow-tie brand, however, provides free maintenance in this category.

  • Three years or 36,000 miles are covered by the limited warranties.

  • A five-year or 60,000-mile powertrain warranty is included.

  • There is no free routine maintenance
