    2020 Shelby GT500 weight - not surprising

    4225 lbs.

    Not a huge issue for guys like me that are more straight-line than road course carvers. But pretty hard to deal with an additional 600 lbs over a GT350R on a road course which may explain why it looks like the 350 will remain in production at least a little while longer. The 500 and Demon Challenger can square off and lumber around the course in contest I guess.

    Dan,

    I had read that they would weigh in the upper 3,000 pound range but that surprises me. That would be a handful on a tight road course.

    Then throw a fat Silverback into to it and you would have a real pig.

    That's only about 400 lbs less than my 4x4 Explorer. Where is all the weight coming from?

    I was wondering the same thing Al. I could see 100 pounds, or maybe even 200 more than the GT-350.

    Supercharger, intercooler, lots of piping, pumps, intercooler fluid, brackets, shrouding, etc. It always seems like adding an intercooled supercharger adds considerable weight. Still 500 lbs lighter than my Lightning however.
