2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Limited To 5,000 Units

Ford Authority has been given a slide by a source that answers one of the big questions that 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 buyers had lingering about the car. We’ve all wanted to know what the production numbers for the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will be. The slide our source gave us shows that Ford intends to make “~5000 units,” which is consistent with previous Shelby GT500 volumes.

We already know the other key factoids about the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 like power and price. Ford announced late last month that the 2020 GT500 would start at $73,995 for the base model, and get much more expensive from there. The big daddy for price increase is the Carbon Fiber Track Package that adds $18,500 to the base price.

Adding a Gurney flap to the spoiler, removable splitter end plates, and an adjustable strut top mount with the handling package will tack on $1,500. An available Technology package adds $3,000 and brings an upgraded audio system, blind-spot warning, rain-sensing wipers, navigation, and Cobra puddle lamps. Adding Recaro seats outside the Carbon Fiber Track Package will add an undisclosed amount. Painted stripes are optional as is a black painted roof.

As for power output, Ford announced last month that the 2020 Shelby GT500 5.2-liter supercharged Predator V8 engine would make 760 horsepower and 625 pound-foot of torque. Ford touts the GT500 as the most powerful street-legal Ford ever made. We are still waiting on some key factoids, like when the order banks will open for those ready to buy. It wasn’t a surprise that the 2020 GT500 was so expensive, but stepping into the realm of nearly $100,000 Mustangs is still a shock.

    Thank goodness. My chief complaint about the Hellcat is that they made far too many of them. They made about 7K units per year between 2015 and 2018 putting around 20K units out into existence. Living in Houston, I saw them EVERYWHERE and they were not as special because of it.

    Although the Shelby is out of my price point, it’s still pretty amazing when you see a Shelby out in the wild. Glad to see Ford is keeping that Shelby zeal alive!

    “Like when the order banks will open for those ready to buy”???? What universe are you living in???? Not only are the banks open but try and find a dealer that hasn’t already sold his allocation of 1 car many many many many months ago.
