That instagram account is full of aids. It is 100% made up!

Here is the original image that the guy ripped it off from:

I don't care what anyone says. Plain and simple why won't Ford inform us of the weight? Horsepower, ok yea we get it you don't want to reveal it because you are trying to squeeze out all you can but the weight isn't going to change. Is it a tank or what?! My bet is YES!
My guess is Ford doesn't want to release the weight by its self. Because theres nothing sexy about a 4000+ weight. And why poison potential buyers minds. Without the full context. Of how the car performs. People have no issues with the GT-R or hellcat at over 4000 pounds because they put up numbers. And I assume the GT500 will put up numbers.

Agree with comment. Just want to add the GTR is well under 4000, and as low as 38xx for some of the older cars and nismo.

I use to think it was a pig until the hellcat and potentially 500s weight is revealed.

i think the gt500 will run right there with the 2019 ZR1, which is low 11's / high 10's @ 130'ish mph. might even best it.

speculating and guessing games are sure fun!

lol, likely. I cant blame him, youtube and IG have made people feel its easy to make $$ by doing so ( and it kind of is, but takes work) fake info wont pay off in the long run.. i want to send a pm now too, just to get a response :)

Any idea what blue this is? Performance or Velocity?
I believe it is performance blue. I went and looked at a 2019 GT350 in that color the other day.

Velocity blue is much lighter so this should be performance blue for sure.

Road & Track has just confirmed that this sheet is faked!

No, We Haven't Tested the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Yet

An R&T test sheet with performance numbers for the GT500 is floating around online. One problem: We haven't even sat in one yet.

BY TRAVIS OKULSKI
JUN 3, 2019


Nobody outside of Ford has driven the 2020 Mustang GT500. Literally nobody. That's why our ears and eyes perked up when we heard that a test sheet is circulating around the web which says that the car hits 60 in 3.4 seconds and can brake to zero from 60 in 96 feet. Impressive numbers.

But the numbers weren't the only thing that caught our eye. They were written on a work sheet that we use here at R&T to report numbers. Our logo and everything is on it! And that's the problem: nobody at, near, adjacent to, or even tangentially related to R&T has done more than sat inside a GT500 at an auto show or other event.

To be clear, these supposed test numbers that Road & Track got at a test in Las Vegas in May are 100 percent fabricated. When we do get to drive the car, which should be later this year, you can bet we'll be getting performance numbers. But we don't have them yet.

We also asked Ford to chime in on these numbers:

We appreciate our Mustang fans enthusiasm, we also know they appreciate authenticity - especially when we talk Shelby models like the all-new GT500. Ford will announce production performance specs as we get closer to launch.

GT350 is approximately 3,750

20" wheels instead of 19's
bigger heavier brakes
supercharger
supercharger cooling system
DCT has to weigh more than the 6 speed in the GT350

4,000 lbs seems totally believable to me.
My supercharger box was 286lbs on the crate how much did some card board and foam weight? A PD 2650TVS with its system full of water is going to add 200lbs especially with bigger tensioner and 8 rib ect. I can see 4k lbs easy
