    We've just spied the 2020 Shelby GT500 Mustang on the streets of Michigan in both Grabber Lime and Race Red (with over-the-top and rocker stripes). Enjoy!

    Not having a manual is a slight gamble based on some of the purists, but based on the high-end sports car market it's the trend. An auto probably would have gotten better reception had they eased ppl into things by using a shifter that looked traditional. The knob is a bit much, but then again it's a trend too. Fortunately, it isn't going to be a traditional slushbox, but the quickest way to propel the car.

    Sadly Grabber Lime looks nothing like Fords reveal pics, seems like someone went overboard with the editing at Ford. The color definitely needs more saturation compared to the shiny race red on the pictures

    No I get it but for me no manual is a deal breaker. I drive my cars. Trend or not some of us could give a crap about tenths of a second.
    I won't loose sleep over it though. They are purrttty however.

    Are we ever going to see a "Handling Package" car with a Gurney flap installed?

    And I pray you can option one with a RSD and all black Recaros (even if only in cloth).

    Silent testing is it to avoid critisism about sound. So they prefer to mention that they don t drive it hard or it s not the real sound, before the web criticise the sound

    I asked someone that was embedded in the GT500 program for I believe over a year and a half now, spent a lot of time in Arizona testing, at tracks such as VIR pushing the car to its limits, and at building 57 in Michigan, what this "silent testing" banner meant. The response, NVH testing.

    The no manual would keep me away, but the black bumper 'bar' appears to be a real bug killer! Should have done it up in trunk/spatter grey.

    Anyone good with photoshop? Can someone photoshop that black bumper just so we can see how it looks? Man that still kinda bothers me.

    I was bothered by the bumper for a full one day.

    Then I saw how they’ve created the entire front end to look sectioned and I loved it. Still do. Even more now.

    It’s the best looking mustang ever made by ford in my opinion.

    It’s elegant yet brutal. Thoroughly modern and futuristic looking.

    Now if only Ford could figure out a way to modernize the racing stripes...

    They look low, lean and mean. I do wish grabber lime was like the reveal pictures.

    Now that it has been revealed, TT0013, Race Red, born on March 14th. I'm glad it's going to good use. I'm leaning towards RR with black roof, no stripes.
