Ford Performance has been on a rampage with the 2016 Ford Focus RS and 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor, but it’s far from done. There would be an even more powerful Ford Focus RS500, accompanied by a Ford Mustang GT500 that promise some pretty insane figures.
Blue Oval is believed to be preparing more than 400hp for its hotter hot hatch, but more impressive is the Mustang GT500. Some reports claim that Ford is attempting to exceed the 707hp Dodge Challenger Hellcat with up to 740hp.
That would be an interesting retaliation against the Hellcat, given that Dodge pushed the output of its high-performance pony from 600hp to 707hp due to the launch of the 600hp Mustang GT500 back then.
Besides knocking aside the Hellcat, the GT500 would be ahead of the 650hp Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. The only equivalent to the hottest Shelby would be the upcoming Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, which is rumored to have a minimum of 700hp.
The Corvette would typically be a rival to the Dodge Viper ACR and Porsche 911 GT3 RS, but Ford has raised a challenge that would definitely be welcomed by the GM super car. Would it put up a good fight?
