A quick chat with the 2020 Mustang GT500

Cars
[MUSIC] Everyone check it out. The new GT. Alright rev it, rev it, rev it. Okay it's putting in track mode, come on. [SOUND] [BLANK_AUDIO] [LAUGH] Arid that sounds pretty awesome doesn't it? That is amazing and that is the sound of 700 plus horsepower. Yeah we don't know exactly how much yet. They didn't say. But only that we're at like over 700 horsepower and I'm assuming probably around Mid six, high six torques? Whole lot of it. Yeah. Now, I'm a GT350 guy. I really enjoyed the GT350 when we had it in, and that's 560 horsepower, and I was like, this is amazing. I know! The way that that car revved, the way that it handled, I loved everything about that. My favorite Mustang of all time. Ford says that this is going to bring a **** load more power but also keep that handling intact. Yeah, because it does have the magnetic sphere like magnetic ride suspension. So that should be able to soak up those bumps. Super light carbon fiber wheels Brimbo Brakes I know, I know. And did you check this out, these are 20 inch wheels so they can fit the brakes.>> Yeah exactly. Now the previous GT50's were a little bit of a handful. Yeah this is still going to be a handful though. It's going to definitely be but if it can keep some of that performance intact it's going to be amazing. It will also be a great weapon against the challenger hellcat which is not the The best at going around a corner. No, but the Hellcat Widebody, you have to admit, the Hellcat Widebody handles pretty well. It handles better than the brand that the Hellcat is. But it'll also be like an excellent foil to the VL1. So Ford is actually stepping their game up significantly here. Can we look at the front here, and look at these vents? Yeah, get in there. Have you seen how giant these vents are down here? Holy cow. [LAUGH] I know. And there's so much cooling that needs to happen because we've got a giant supercharger under the hood. Right, same Voodoo V-8 engine, except for without the flat-plane crank, because that's gonna be more reliable. Adn that's what I really like about the G T350 was that [UNKNOWN] point in the way solid. But it also turn out to be not the most proper liable treat. Liable how cares if the sound the performance and what is runing what all you really care about but when we just curves right now start up, it sound really good. That's pretty damn good. So I also know that there is a truck package with a rear seat delete. You don't need that. Yeah, yeah, yeah. So, what I'm gonna do put a car seat back there? Exactly. Come on. And then we also when we're put the wing it's got more down force than the GT40. More down force than the GT40. Wow. That plays and that wing is impressive. Yeah. I mean it looks like an after market bid but they're just- I know. I guess it's technically is sort of a. OAM after--whatever, you know, it's an awesome look for the car. So, when we get thus to Retro HQ, ama drive it? Ama drive it. Ama drive it. wait, I mean we take turns, we'll write paper scissors for who goes first but we take turns. You wanna write paper scissors right now? I mean, no. [LAUGH] We'll save that for when we actually get it in. And well I would love to see compair of these and the whole car, is nice to see more. More interesting in see how this compares to the [UNKNOWN] because I mean the whole car is kind of a one treat [UNKNOWN] I'm expecting this to be a more well rounded vehicle so I mean to be a one extremely well arounded performance vehicle so this is like. I don't know mehn, its sort if like a good time to be like an American sport enthusiast between this in the Chevy. Yeah, I love it, I love it. Looking forward to it. And we've got a crap time more coverage of the GT3 GT 500. We'be got a GT 500 I've been saying 350 for so long. [LAUGH] I love that car. We've got a crap ton more coverage of the GT 500 launch over on the roadshow.com. So be sure to check us out for even more videos, more specs and more details there.
