    Which is odd because if you look at the redline rpm, the top is only to 6500 and we know it is going to 7500. So to me these pictures as of now look should not apply to anything.

    Holy ****. About mother****ing time we got the ****ing ball rolling on this ****ing thing. I pray Ford sends somebody to the show that knows what the **** he is ****ing talking about and not a quickie that is actually a thinly veiled attempt to put Seal's name back into the limelight.

    Ehh, I mean credit where it's due the Boss 302 was a hell of a car but basically all we got on the Boss in an episode of Jay Leno's Garage was a Ford engineer saying this is as good as it's going to get so the aftermarket shouldnt try to make it better. I'm exaggerating, but it was something to that effect.

    Hameedi was on Leno's garage for a pretty good look at the GT350. I assumed that at least Widmann would have been on for the GT500. Apparently Seal has more to offer.

    WTF

    It was stupid. Barely talked about anything technical with the car other than 760 hp and 0-60 in 3.5. Didn’t show shit aside from a quick glance at the dash from the middle. A few brief outside shots of Seal flooring it. That’s about it.

    Very disappointing !

    I aimed pretty low and was still disappointed.

    What gives me hope is that maybe, just maybe, Leno did indeed do an episode with a background break down of the car. Why? Because it would have been completely retarded to send Pericak there for a 5 second cameo and then >POOF< gone followed by nothing but a waste of a trip bringing the car to California.

    I'm holding out for a Leno episode with Pericak where we might actually learn something about the ****ing car.

    spot on tob, remain flexible

    Negativity, in heavy doses, can be much like reverse psychology if the aim is to trick karma into pleasing you when it originally wanted just the opposite.

    My money is on them not releasing any more information on it. It’s already been this long without and people are still wanting them, I don’t see their incentive.

    Please can someone tell me why most American cars don't have parking sensors? Especially front sensors?

    The new 2020 GT500 seem neither have front or back sensors wtf really?


    My 2012 GT500 don't have any sensors or camera, and it really is so difficult to park the car. At least for me it is. I know I can do aftermarket install with Lockpick pro but this features should be standard from the release of the car.

    Canson: I feel you with regard to the missing sensors and it's not like Ford hasn't been putting them on vehicles for crying out loud. Every Ford I've had since at least '08 had them EXCEPT my '14 GT500. Nada, as you said. Alas, we've become accustomed to such niceties with advancing technology but most of us got by for years without any help. That said, I too nearly freak out every time I try to park the Shelby and typically do so WAY out in the back forty with NOTHING around. :)

    Because all of the sensors would go nuts when you give it some gas leaving cars and coffee and the stang wants to eat so it starts devouring bystanders on the sidewalk.

    Rear Cameras became required by law for 2018 model year, I believe it was April 1, 2018.
