There's a new boss in town, and it puts all previous production Mustangs in the shade. Take a deeper look at the car in this video.

The new 2020 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 launched with much fanfare at the 2019 Detroit motor show, becoming the most powerful road-legal Mustang ever created in the process.

There are plenty of high-end mechanical parts, from the carbon-fibre driveshaft to the magneto-rehological suspension, along with enough vents, scoops and intakes to make even the most devout boy racers weak at the knees.

In the video below, Justin Dugan from AmericanMuscle takes an in-depth look at what makes the GT500 tick. He also has a chat with Carl Widmann, chief engineer on the project, to get a better idea about the story behind the meanest, leanest production Mustang/Snake ever to grace the road.
