  • Carbon Ceramic Rotor for 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500

    The Car 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 has 760 hp to compete with Camaro ZL1, Challenger Hellcat

    The Blue Oval's latest track-focused brawler gets a whopping power increase, going from 662 to 760 horsepower.

    Naturally, braking has been substantially upgraded, with a Brembo package including 16.5-inch two-piece iron front rotors -- Ford says they're the largest found on any domestic coupe. Six-piston fixed front calipers are fitted up front and four-piston units are found out back. Ford says the new discs feature 20 percent more swept area than the binders on the GT350, and 30 percent more thermal mass up front.

    According to Ford, the upsized brakes forced the adoption of 20-inch wheels (the GT350 runs 19s). In case you're wondering like I was, Widmann says, "Iron brakes were found to meet the track requirement when it came to brake fade resistance and longevity, we did not pursue ceramic brakes."

          What Does A Carbon Fiber Package Worth A Ford Ecosport Get You?

          The 2020 GT500 is finally here and this new top dog Mustang offers options packages fit for a supercar. One of the most exciting options is the Carbon Fiber Track Package which adds a host of carbon fiber components for the princely sum of $18,500. So exactly what does an option package worth a Ford EcoSport gets you?

          Owners who opt-in for the Carbon Fiber Track Package are in for quite a treat. To start you get a set of excellent 20” Carbon fiber wheels courtesy of Australian based wheel manufacturer Carbon Revolution. Wrapped around those feather-light carbon wheels is a full set of Michelin Pilot Cup Sport 2 Tires Front - 305/30 R 20, Rear - 315/30 R 20. This is also the most downforce on a factory Mustang thanks to the addition of front splitter wickers and a massive carbon-fiber rear wing lifted directly from the Mustang GT4 race car.

          The interior is also dressed with carbon fiber accents around the gauge cluster and instrument panels. Ford will also remove your rear seat as part of this package to keep weight and lap times down. A set of Recaro bucket seats also come with this track-focused package to keep you in place during hard cornering. There's also a set of included wheel locks to keep those very valuable carbon fiber wheels on the car, just watch out for curbs.

          The Carbon Fiber Track Package takes the GT500’s base price of $73,995 and immediately pumps it up to $92,495. However, if you’re looking for the absolute highest performance Mustang from the factory this is your ticket. A near six-figure mustang is a tough pill to swallow but if you have the funds trust us, you’re going to want the Carbon Fiber Track Package.

            See this amazing weight reduction on Mustang GT500 (2020+) rotors - Converting from iron to CCB.

            Rear: 370x30mm

            This GT500 front rotor (420x40) is the largest and heaviest (43 lbs) one we ever handled, so is the front CCM rotor which is the largest and heaviest one (43 lbs on Iron and 19 lbs on CCB) we ever built for any motorsports car in history.

            Both are holding the record in the size and weight in the brake industry.
