After a near-extinction in the 80s, the American muscle car has never been so alive and well since its birth in the 60s. Ford's just-announced GT500 is coming with the most powerful engine ever offered in a road-legal Ford — over 700 horsepower from a supercharged 5.2-liter aluminum V8. The Mustang is now firmly in territory that was once the domain of supercars, and the spec and equipment sheets blur the lines between mid-engine European offerings and even Ford's own GT. Ford claims 0-60 times of mid-three seconds for the new GT500, and performance isn't limited to the drag strip. Active suspension and a Tremec seven-speed dual-clutch tuned specifically for the GT500 mean that its track prowess will be just as impressive as its straight-line times. New bodywork adds a more aggressive look while incorporating aero and cooling improvements for high-speed demands and harsh track conditions. The GT500 arrives in Fall 2019.
