Chevy Baits Ford Mustang Owners with Special Camaro Discount

Chevy Baits Ford Mustang Owners with Special Camaro Discount It's a good try, but Ford's still ahead on sales and has an offer of its own. Current Ford Mustang owners can get $2500 off a new 2019 Chevrolet Camaro this month, assuming they would make such a switch. The Mustang continues to lead the Camaro in total sales through June. The deal expires September 3, but it's not difficult to strike a deal on a Camaro in the first place. On one side, there are those who call the Camaro's current face fugly and believe the Mustang is just a superior car.

Here's what the new supercharged Mustang Shelby GT 500 sounds like in Quiet, Normal, Sport and Race mode, inside and out. With more than 700 horsepower and a

Shelby GT 500 starts with a supercharged 5.2-liter aluminum alloy engine built by hand. To keep the intake air cooler and deliver a lower center of gravity, the team inverted a 2.65-liter roots-type supercharger with air-to-liquid intercooler tucked neatly in the V8 engine valley.

Seven hundred and sixty horsepower. That's the output of the supercharged, 5.2-liter V-8 under the hood of the new 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. Crazy. And where the old 661-hp GT500 could only be had with a six-speed manual, the new version can only be had with a Tremec seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. As Bob Dylan sang, "The times they are a-changin'." And how very Porsche 911 GT2 RS of Ford.

Looking through the configurator for the new Shelby, you can basically build a GT500 in two ways—track-focused or street-focused. I'd go the latter route, as I like the idea of a wicked-fast Mustang for the road. If I was going to do proper circuit work, I'd buy the lighter, naturally aspirated Shelby GT350R or the not-street-legal Shelby FP350S race car from the Ford parts department. As such, here's how to spec the perfect Mustang Shelby GT500:

Exterior

Paint: Many people will surely pick a crazy, extroverted color for this over-the-top pony car. Options along those lines include Grabber Lime, Twister Orange Tri-Coat, and Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat. The latter two options are $495 and $395, respectively. I'd go with Iconic Silver, which is a no-charge option, new for 2020, and has been shown in many of the press photos. It's gorgeous. I'd pass on the black roof ($695), vinyl side stripes ($395), "Over-the-Top" vinyl stripes ($1000), and the ultra-expensive "Over-the-Top" painted stripes ($10,000). All the stripe options are available in either black, white, or blue. Just keep in mind that stripe hue compatibility depends on your exterior color choice. And if you do want top stripes, =splurge and go with the painted version. They look way better and won't peel away.

This 1968 Ford Mustang GT/CS Is One Sweet Pony

This 1968 Ford Mustang GT/CS Is One Sweet Pony A fully restored example with just 30,000 miles on the clock Mosing Motorcars is happy to offer the opportunity to call this beautiful 1968 Ford Mustang GT/CS California Special you own. Just 3,200 of these special edition Mustangs were produced, and this one was given a complete ground-up restoration. In the 51 years this car has been around, less than 32,000 miles have been clocked on the odometer. A 289cui V8 under the hood powers the beast and shifts via a C4 Cruise-O-Matic transmission down to the 2.79 conventional rear axle.

The 2020 Ford Shelby GT 500 is finally here. Packing over 700 horsepower, the latest iteration of Carroll Shelby ’s iconic fastback is Ford ’s most powerful vehicle to date. We look at the new Mustang and note the history behind the high-performance GT 500 .

The Shelby GT 500 was reborn in 2007 as the range-topping Mustang , and its supercharged V8 ultimately pushed the car to 200 mph before disappearing in 2015 with the launch of the sixth-generation car. The Shelby GT 350 with its high-revving

Wheels: There are only two options, both 20 inches in diameter. I'm not a big fan of black wheels but I'd still go with the standard high-gloss black aluminum wheels. The other option is exposed carbon-fiber wheels, but they only come with the Carbon Fiber Track Pack (see below). I wish Ford offered some further wheel colors, like silver or gray for the standard double five-spoke wheels. Porsche does.

Interior

Seats: The standard perches are heated and cooled power seats in a mix of leather and Alcantara-like material. Recaro leather seats come with the track pack or are a stand-alone $1595 option. My experience with Recaro seats in Ford products is very hit or miss. I tend to like them in a Mustang but hated them in the U.S-spec Focus ST and Focus RS. But I really like the Recaro seats in the latest Euro Fiesta ST. So, it's a tough call. But given the road focus of my GT500 build, I'll stick with the stock seats, as the Recaro seat option on the GT500 deletes the power adjustment and the heating and cooling features, and disallows the selection of a memory option. The only color choice with either seat option in black with gray accents. So, no choice needed there.

Shelby American Launches Dragon Snake Concept at 2019 SEMA Show

  Shelby American Launches Dragon Snake Concept at 2019 SEMA Show Everyone has been waiting to see what Shelby American will do with the upcoming 2020 Ford Shelby GT500, and here’s the answer—The Dragon Snake.Debuting in Ford's main inside display area at the 2019 SEMA Show is Shelby American's latest concept vehicle, the 2020 Ford Shelby GT500 Dragon Snake. If the Dragon Snake name sounds familiar to you, it should. The Dragonsnake name was used in the 1960s (all one word back then) when Shelby American offered a drag-racing version of its Shelby Cobra model. Given the new Ford Shelby GT500's dual-clutch transmission and stout 5.2L engine, Shelby American reimagined Ford's new Mustang supercar for that same mission.

Every millimeter counts for the Mustang Shelby GT 500 to deliver on downforce, braking and cooling targets. The team leveraged Ford ’s vast resources of advanced design simulation tools, including the Ford Performance technical center in Concord, North Carolina, and rapid 3D prototyping systems at

Minor tweaks to the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT 350R’s suspension make for a more streetable track car. The GT 350R’s updated suspension curbs this tendency, though. The Shelby tracked straight and true on Woodward and other roads in metro Detroit, and along with magnetic dampers

Trim: The standard "Shelby exclusive" aluminum trim is great for me. Exposed carbon-fiber trim is offered for $1000 or comes with the Carbon Fiber Track Pack. I'm not a carbon interior fan, so it's not on my build—but feel free to put it on yours.

Options

Technology Package ($3000): Again, I'm going with a road-focused build. Included with this package is 12-speaker B&O audio, blind-spot monitoring, heated mirrors with turn signals and cheesy Cobra-logo puddle lights, memory for the driver's seat and navigation. Why the latter isn't standard on a near-$75,000 car is beyond me. Maybe it's that Porsche influence.

What to Skip: Most of what's offered by Ford. I've mentioned passing on the Recaro seats, carbon interior trim, and the various stripe options. The $18,500 Carbon Fiber Track Pack adds the exposed carbon-fiber wheels shod with track-focused Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires (versus the standard road-friendly Pilot Sport 4S tires), adjustable strut mounts, a giant rear wing and extra wickers on the body. The package also deletes the rear seat—I couldn't deny my wife and kids a family jaunt in the mega-powerful GT500. I could add the Handling Package ($1500) to my build but it simply includes splitter wickers and a Gurney flap for the standard rear wing, which are shipped in the trunk for later installation. That's not something I'd use. For $395, Ford offers an indoor car cover in black, red, blue or gray, as well.

Total Cost: $76,995. That's the $73,995 base price plus the tech package; it also includes the mandatory $2600 gas-guzzler tax. Compared to the $294,450 starting price for a Porsche 911 GT2 RS, not bad at all.
