    I’m sure SVTP will have a front page article and thread tomorrow.
    Can’t wait for pics at debut and then see in person during public show!

    Track attack included is a cool addition!

    Can't say what the embargoed information entails (sorry!) but suffice it to say that there is no mention of a front tow hook. First person to confirm gets a free internet cookie.

    I know of someone already locked and loaded to design and sell one if it is not included.

    Notice how large the opening in the upper grille is for airflow to the intake tract (on the right side). Huge increase over how much air was let into the GT350 engine.

    Oh and living in Louisiana I would have to say No to the carbon fiber wheels. Roads here are terrible

    Assuming the GT500 is like the GT, you may want to have the carbon wheels anyway, since the longer lug nuts will accept aftermarket wheels where you can switch back and forth. The Carbon Wheels are really cool even though you may not choose to use them for daily driving.

    Looks like somebody took a crack at trying to hide the pop-out panel on the bumper for a tow hook. A weak attempt at best.

    No tease here. I want to see it in the flesh or hear that it'll be in place on production vehicles. An unimportant detail to some but a huge one to others.

    Well, I'm hoping it has some of these neat little features from the factory too. I am excited for what this car is. I have done alot of those type of mods to our other street to track cars, like the Boss 302. It would be nice to have the option there already.

    So it's a track car, but not the quickest.
    And it's a drag car but not the fastest.
    So, what will it be best at? TBD I guess..
