Ford’s 2020 Shelby GT500 has over 700 horsepower. Let that sink in. Beneath a fiberglass hood, replete with standard hood pins, lurks a 5.2-liter aluminum engine force-fed by an Eaton roots-type supercharger. Codenamed the Predator, this powerplant comes standard in Ford’s new GT500 and stakes the claim as the Blue Oval’s most powerful engine, ever. There are even rumors the final horsepower figure is well over 750.
