It looks offical - Ford's teaser video on the 2019 GT500

Recommended Posts

"Loaded with the most venom ever, the all-new Mustang Shelby® GT500® with its 700-plus horsepower supercharged V8 will be the most powerful street-legal production Ford ever."

I thought the new FGT was the most powerful ever?

Ford GT twin turbo 6 is rated at 647 HP.  New Mustang Shelby GT500 wins the horsepower bragging rights and costs a lot less!

Gotcha.  Marketing 101 by Ford I suppose.

I'd like to hear that conversation.  A guy with a new GT500 bragging to the guy with the new FGT that his new GT500  is the "most powerful Ford ever".

That would be a short argument.  Power is nothing compared to racing pedigree.  Two different worlds, but much respect between both.  Wonder how the GT500 will stack up against the current Super Snake?  That would be a much better comparison.  And why is Ford stuck on black wheels?

The new ford GT can't be compared to a mustang.  the gt has more than enough hp to compete in it's class.  in fact it is always choked back.   put them in a track and guess which will win.

GT500: more horsepower, rear seat for kids, trunk for luggage., no purchase restrictions.

Ford GT: ultimate eye candy and prestige as well as insane collector value.

Both win in their respective categories and would appear well in any two car garage.  Fantasy dream.:cool:

I agree.  I suppose any Ford guy would know full well that the NFGT is king of the castle by a huge stretch.

No the 13/14 GT 500 was 662hp. Puts the ford GT in 3rd place. Sure hope they can put that much hp to the ground in the mustang. AWD would help so who knows.

AWD option would be outstanding, I don’t see it happening though.  The problem with cars like the Hellcat is most of the time you can’t use the power, it’s mostly for bragging rights.

True, but that was back in 2013-14 before the new GT.  I am referring to the coming year.  But you are correct that the Shelby GT500 continues to win the Ford production model horsepower wars.

That’s exactly what my 14 GT500 was like . You could go 0 to 60 without shifting out of first gear. Could not use all 662 hp on the streets  

What magic powers will the new 700+ hp Shelby have ?

Looking forward to the new GT500! :thumbsup:  

Looks like it won't be just a straight-line car with that rear spoiler, but a track beast like the new ZR1 Vette and Camaro ZL1.

I agree.  I think Ford has turned the corner on the "One trick Pony"
