Road Test Review – 2020 Shelby GT350R – The ultimate jack of all trades?

The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R is a very interesting elixr for many car enthusiasts. When we sampled it earlier this year at the M1 Speedway, we were immediately entranced with the serpent’s ability to deliver world class track performance. This includes having the muscle necessary to blast through long straights and the grip to find the apex every time. But how does the GT350R fare beyond an average track day, and is it worth paying the extra cost over a slightly cheaper base GT500? We we’re eager to find out.   Reptilian skin wows the neighbors, and Twister Orange …

2020 SHELBY GT500 Ford Mustang – Covid-Safe(r) Track Drive Event

The launch rollout of the rockstar Mustang GT500 took a bit of a hiatus over the springtime for obvious reasons but it’s back on!   Covid-safe wit masks, lots of cleaning, disinfectant mister guns, helmet oven sanitizer and many other precautions were in place. Meeting the 760HP, 625-pound-foot GT500 on the track really is the perfect way to stretch its legs and test its limits.  Make no mistake, the rumors of #BestMustangEver are very true here. The car is so good that it even wears the famed Shelby Cobra snake logos all over — something we missed a bit on the …

Ford To Auction One-Off Shelby GT500 Venom For Charity

When it comes to creating good publicity as well as doing a good deed for others, nothing does the job quite like an all new perfornance offering. McLaren’s MSO division made a splash when it donated a 720S for charity auction, and Toyota did a similar move with its hotly popular Supra sports coupe. With the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 slithering closer to its official dealer rollout, Ford has revealed that it will once again partner with the JDRF (formerly known as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) to raffle another car for auction.   In this case, it’s a …

2020 Shelby GT350R Debuts, Borrows Tricks From Big Brother GT500

When we last met the 2019 Shelby GT350, It was at Michigan’s M1 Concourse Speedway in Pontiac, Michigan where we had the chance to experience some of the track focused charms that this delectable serpent brings to the lucky buyers that can add one to their garage.

Buyers looking for a radical styling evolution will not find it …

Ford Announces 2020 Shelby GT500 Pricing, Will Start At $73,995

The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 certainly has a diverse arsenal of sales weapons at its disposal. It has carefully sculpted exterior styling that makes the 2019 GT350 we reviewed look like a tame boy scout, a revamped interior that promises to seamlessly marry functionality and comfort, and the pony csr with attitude even comes to the muscle car wars with a 760 horsepower supercharged V8 that puts it in the same neighborhood as the Dodge SRT Hellcat Challenger Redeye and the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. Amid all the info we already know about this beast, pricing was one of the …

~755HP Shelby GT500 Joins Horsepower Wars, Sinks Fangs Into Hellcat and Camaro ZL1

In the current iteration of the muscle car wars, the extreme end of the segment has lately been dominated by two distinct entries, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and the 717 Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Both of these models have been slugging it out in sales and on the racetrack for awhile now, but that’s partially due to the absence of a third contender, the Shelby GT500. The GT500 last terrorized the dragstrip in the mid 2000’s before ending production in 2013. Ford has not forgotten the unique allure of the GT500, and has unleashed the latest GT500 to try and reclaim …

RM Arizona 2015 Preview – 1969 Shelby Mustang GT500 Convertible

So easy to forget how quickly the Mustang evolved between 1965 and 1972. The style of this 1969 is cool but a bit polarizing in some places – where it tends to look less pure than the 1965-1966 cars but less well-resolved than the wider and lower 1970 and onward. Even so, this car is a clear trendsetter and there are awesome details like the milled dual-chamber center exhaust element, or the NACA ducts in the hood, to delight the eye. The one catch with this particular car is the transmission: it is an automatic. 1969 Shelby Mustang GT500 Convertible …
