2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500: First Drive Review

For the track, the GT500s were all equipped with the Carbon Fiber Track Package, Recaro seats and 5-point racing harnesses, which keep drivers securely positioned in their seats so they really feel what the car is doing. The car feels balanced with proper steering feel and good turn-in at corners, remaining stable and balanced throughout multiple turns. Exiting slower or tighter corners, the GT500 really puts power down well, taking advantage of all available horses. With the GT500 in Track mode, the traction control and stability control are still active, but allow more leeway before intervening — which means drivers can get the rear end out under hard acceleration. The brakes are incredibly powerful, stopping the car fast and consistently from 130 mph at the end of the straight.
