The 2023 Mustang Shelby GT500 will be offered in two flavors, depending on how you want to use it. The basic model of the 2023 GT500 will be Drag racing oriented, while the version that comes with the Carbon Fiber Handling Package will be optimized for circuit racing.
That’s because this package includes 20-inch carbon fiber wheels (one inch more than the GT350R), giant GT4 style carbon fiber spoiler, front splitter, and no rear seat.
Both the base model and the circuit race car will be equipped with the same 305mm tires on all four sides; the base model gets the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, while the car with the Handling Package gets the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2s with a unique palm pattern and compound for the GT500.
Both models will be very fast, Owens said, but the downforce (and drag) of the two-position rear aerofoil can make it a little slower in a straight line compared to the base model.
