In GT versions can have up to 486 hp, but only if the customer selects an active exhaust system. Who gets the setup without option, it will take home “modic” 480 hp, which ranks it as the most powerful V8 for a mustang “structure”.

Torque is also different: 57.4 kgfm for configuration without active exhaust system and 57.8 kgfm for optional. It’s worth noting that this version still offers the optional limited slip differential to add, MagneRide suspension and Recaro seats.
