Pre Production units.  One of the cars I drove had a chassis number like PP00022 or something like that.

Correct, Ford like most every automaker has pre-production or what used to be refereed to as "pilot cars" to work out the kinks in the assembly line along with training workers on new procedures.

Just think about it, would you really want to own a vehicle where the line workers who are assembling the car had never performed such and such procedure before and they are learning on "your" car? I sure wouldn't.

Steven

PS- Many of the pre-production cars will be offered for sale to Ford employees when Ford is done with them.

The New 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is Much Better Than You Think — Here's Why!

Amazing Car, it looks like they nailed everything performance wise and I absolutely LOVE the looks.  I still can not get over the fact the Interior is basically the same as a $35K Mustang.  The fake plastic Stitching has to go, I can not think of another car at this price point that has an interior this cheap.  If you are going to charge $10K for stripes have an option for a FULL leather Interior.  People that spend this much want a much nicer interior.  Also PLEASE tell me they plan to offer something other then Black Wheels.

 

Other then those 2 small gripes (Interior isn't too small, but I would deal with it) I love this car!!!!

All the 2020 GT500 reviews are positive, but if Chevy wants to find any ideas to criticize the car for their commercials, look no further than Team Shelby. 

Also, more traffic for their C8 here than any other site. :doh:

Comparable cost to the C8, well, there goes one of the arguments people had.  And faster times on the drag strip too.  So much for the C8 being the greatest thing ever.

"The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Would Make Carroll Shelby Proud"

Redline Reviews

Carnut, you'll like this review, he agrees with your assessment of the interior vs price and there's close ups of all the alcantara, leather, aluminium, carbon fiber, soft plastic and faux stitching lol. Remember, this isn't a high-end euro luxo cruiser, it's a sport/musclecar/track car where most of the money is in the drivetrain which really shines here. I think most will agree that the interior is plenty nice. Save the wood paneling for the Bentleys, ok?

My old boss recovered the entire interior of his 2013 GT500 in leather and suede.  It came out very nice.

Read the article.

The average auto journalists make $45K and Probably can’t afford a $90K+ Shelby . So they are biased to start with. These GT500’s will sell well ( 5000 made ) but not to the average Joe out there. Can’t wait till Randy gets to track one.  They sound good at the track at WOT. The 13/14 GT500 with the SVT track package had track manners but this new one takes it to another level. ..:dance:  A level that most people can’t reach and certainly not on the street  IMO . Chime in Mongoose.

Hey Slo Lane, your right on the mark again, good catch!    Yes, the author must of been thinking about the Corvette when he mentioned  being around 65 years, because the very first Vette came out in 1953.

It was an article on the Mustang, why would he get it confused with a vette?  I'm thinking more like a typo nobody caught cuz 55 would be correct.  If he was thinking about vettes then he needs to be slapped around.

But we're not focusing on writing an article on Mustangs like he was.  The attention span here is a couple minutes long.

The 2020 GT500 is proving to be yet another Ford success with Shelby Lineage attached to it. The overall performance numbers trickling out about it are impressive. The reviews are predominantly positive. The order banks are filling up rapidly. People are starting to receive their cars and people are posting in multiple different forums that they will be receiving cars soon with estimated delivery dates before Thanksgiving of 2019.  While I am not in the market for a 760 hp beast myself, I like what they did with the platform. I am glad to know Ford as well as Shelby continue to push the performance envelope for the Mustang and I am happy for people who are going to be getting one.
