The New 2020 Shelby Mustang GT-500
The new GT-500 — I love it — except...
There's no manual transmission.
Not that I have the money to buy one, but if I did, I wouldn't.
It's a Mustang and there's nothing more Mustang than rowing your own boat.
I don't care if it's 100 years from now and its powered by a nuclear reactor. If it's a Mustang, it requires a manual transmission.
As in, it is officially not a Mustang without one.
Even the Corvette and the Camaro haven't lost sight of that.
To create the car without even an option for a manual is nothing but sacrilege.
Otherwise, the GT-500 looks pretty nifty watching it slowly emerge from the womb of the Mustang development team.
The claim of sub-11 second quarter-mile times with an output of over 700 horses is exactly what I think it should be.
But with a manual transmission.
And mechanical gauges. It requires mechanical gauges.
