2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 Numbers Released
Some of you may recall (given that it wasn’t all that long ago) the cover story in the May issue of AD+P about the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500.
What we didn’t know then but what we just learned today is the performance of that 5.2-liter, supercharged V8 that is nestled under the hood (the engine is so large that in order to keep the center of gravity as low as possible the Ford powertrain engineers inverted the 2.65-liter roots-type supercharger with an air-to-liquid intercooler in the valley of the V8).
The company has released the official horsepower and torque numbers, based on premium fuel per the SAE J1349 standard, and they are 760 hp and 625 lb-ft of torque.
Which makes this, according to Ford, “the most power- and torque-dense supercharged production V8 engine in the world.”
And let’s face it: a car that looks like this really needs something like that.
Hyundai's product onslaught continues with a new compact that's bigger, more stylish and more efficient than its predecessor. And its development cycle is faster than the competition.
GM gives its mid-size pickup customers what they’ve been clamoring for, a clean and quiet, high-torque, fuel-efficient diesel.
The engineers at Munro & Associates have taken a perfectly sound BMW i3 and taken it apart. Completely apart. And they are impressed with what they’ve discovered about how the EV is engineered.
