When Ford set out to make the most powerful street-legal new Mustang Shelby GT500 ever, they knew aerodynamics were going to play a huge part in the design process. So, they made over 500 3D cooling and aerodynamic designs using supercomputers and 3D printing to make sure the all-new 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 was the most aerodynamically advanced car on the road today.
“We created and studied designs among the engineering teams and proved out different strategies long before we built our first prototype cars. Not only did this improve the effectiveness of the designs, it dramatically reduced the time it took to develop the GT500 – and the costs associated with that.” – Matt Titus, Ford Performance Vehicle Engineer
“This all-new aero design merges state-of-the-art design and materials technology with the craftsmanship of Ford racing expertise to create the most aero-capable Mustang ever. It’s powerful, balanced and consistent – even over extended track runs – which works to deliver more fun and greater confidence for drivers.” – Steve Thompson, Ford Performance Vehicle Dynamics Engineer
