Ford Unveils Most Powerful Mustang Ever

As for the new Shelby, it certainly comes with the trappings of a performance vehicle. The exterior is defined by a curved clamshell-like hood, neatly cupped roofline, and massive louvered hood vent with a removable aluminum rain tray. (The painted stripes down the front of the hood cost extra.) It looks more extreme—angrier—than those conventional rental Mustangs you see in Hawaii and Big Sur.
Buyers can opt for a Handling Package that includes a rear spoiler with a so-called Gurney flap, a small tab edge projecting from the wing, or a Carbon Fiber Track Package that comes with 20-inch carbon-fiber wheels with 0.5-inch-wider rear wheels, an adjustable exposed carbon-fiber track wing, and rear-seat delete (to make the car lighter, of course). The new transmission is designed to excel under varying drive modes including normal, weather, sport, drag, and track; there’s even a launch control. New colors for 2020 include Red Hot, Twister Orange, and Iconic Silver.
