New 2020 model year weighs “approximately” 1 916 kg. The source of this information is the official brochure, which is intended for brand dealers.

The American sports coupe Ford Mustang in a more powerful performance Shelby GT500 is a very powerful car. A couple of minutes ago it became known that the new 2020 model year will also have quite a lot of weight. It is reported that the automaker has sent its dealers an electronic Shelby GT500 reference guide that will help Ford dealers and employees get to know the model. Among the information in the book there is also an approximate base mass in running order – it is 1,916 kg, which is clearly a lot, especially for a sports car.

The appearance of electronic guidance at dealers means that the American brand will soon reveal all the secrets about the new Shelby GT500.

Thus, the new product is more than 180 kg heavier than the less powerful performance of the GT350. But this is certainly not as heavy a car as the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat weighing 2 018 kg. The big question is what kind of Shelby GT500 will receive dynamic characteristics, especially if all the power will be supplied only to the front wheels – and that is what the electronic manual says.

 Unfortunately, the rest of the details of the American news remain unavailable at the moment. We do not know how long the coupe can accelerate to 100 km / h and overcome the first 402 meters. Representatives of the company many times said that under the hood a powerful engine with 700+ horsepower will be installed, although rumors were circulating about 800 “horses”.
