Default 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500: This Might Be It For Real

The Ford Shelby GT350 has been the top of the Mustang heap for a few years now, but we’ve known for some time that a GT500 is coming to top it. Now, as part of an already leaky 2019 Detroit Auto Show, we have images that images appear to be of a factory marketing brochure for the new top dog supercharged flat-plane…

DCT and no manual option. Sure, makes sense if the point is fast 1/4 mile times and needing something to take all the torque. That being said, I wanted the Mustang I've got on order specifically to go back to a manual, just for the old school feel that I had in my 1970 Mach 1. Not sure I would have done it if there was just a DCT.

....so will it have a flat or cross plane crank? We'll find out later this week I'm guessing.

If it makes at least one more horsepower than a ZR1, then it will be more powerful than a ZR1. FACT

Maybe the manual will come later, like what Dodge did with the SRT8 Challenger. IIRC those first came out with the auto only.

Even with 7 gears I'm guessing the gearing will be long for traction purposes. 60 mph in first gear. Says it's a new transmission but wouldn't be surprised if it's very similar to the unit in the GT.

I
The text in the brochure shown in the article says cross plane.

If a manual does get produced, hopefully it isn't a Getrag.
