Ford Motor Co. (F) just announced the release of its newest Mustang Shelby in 2020. Ford's Performance Marketing Manager, Jim Owens called it a "fire breathing monster." Let's start with the coolest part of the car:
It's a 5.2 liter cross-plane crank that's got a 2.7 liter super charger, which can produce over 700 horse power.
This car has a self-centering hood pin, which enhances that drive-down-the-race track experience.
The breaks are "massive," said Owens. They are "the biggest breaks we've ever put on a passenger car in the United States," he added. This break can stop the car as it goes at high speeds. The break system is somewhat linked to automated technology as well.
This allows the car to go at high speeds with minimal drag, something eager racers love in their experience in the car.
There's a wing on the back of the car, which is built in Michigan. That's where the wing is put together, but some of the parts are sourced from around the globe.
"It's more shaped like a cockpit, Owens said.
