Ford debuts 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500: 'Most powerful street-legal Mustang ever'

DETROIT - Ford debuted the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 at the 2019 Detroit auto show on Monday.

The automaker called it the "most powerful street-legal Mustang ever."

The new Shelby GT500 delivers more than 700 hp with a new engine. It has as much power as Ford's new Mustang race cars used by NASCAR, but this one is considered street-legal.
