Two 2020 GT500s Spotted In the Wild, With New Aero!

Could this be a first look at the new Carbon Fiber Track Package?

In nature, fauna and flora that want to broadcast “don’t mess with me” tend to wear bright colors. For most, the 2020 Shelby GT500 already conveys that and then some. But just to make sure, Ford has committed to outfitting the hottest factory Mustang ever in some pretty bold hues. In this recent video, Ronnie at YouTube channel Motor Tube caught a pair of wild GT500s in green and blue. Needless to say, we like what we see.

As Motor1 points out, there are some differences between these Shelbys aside from the paint jobs. Primarily, the green car (which looks to be Ford’s Grabber Lime Green) is wearing a pretty aggressive rear wing that looks to be adjustable. This could be the promised Carbon Fiber Track Package, which Ford says will make an impressive 500 pounds of downforce at 180 miles per hour. For those keeping score at home, that’s an extra 121 pounds planting you to the pavement compared to a “stock” GT500.

The fact that both of these cars look to be wearing Michigan Manufacturer plates gives this theory further credence. In the video, Ronnie, towing a wild green Dodge Challenger himself, is pretty excited about his sightings. Unfortunately, the Shelbys ride off into the horizon a few minutes into the video. There are more Mustangs to be seen later on (including an S197 GT500), but the real highlights here are the new cars.

Now that the GT500 is well on its way, it’s a thrill to see them in the wild. We’re hoping that more videos like this continue to pop up while we patiently wait for the new Shelbys to make it to our local Ford dealerships. After all, they look pretty good in the real world.
