    The front of the GT500 looks horrible. I wish it was all body colour. The GT350 looks way better.

    The IRS has been back since 2015...

    I would drive it, but I'm sure I wouldn't want to pay the price to play. Dollar for dollar I may have other cars in mind.

    DCT. If this is true, it’s a great compromise. Still many “row your own” folks will be upset.

    If it isn't legit, then someone spent a lot of time making a hoax. It will be interesting to see what availability, sticker price, and dealer mark-up ends up at.

    I think it looks better in those photos than the previous leaked ones.

    Bigger weight needing bigger coolers and air flow, if this car had the same grill as a terminator it would heat soak before the first corner

    I'm getting excited about this car again.
    I gotta be honest, I lost interest a while ago. Can't wait for the reveal tomorrow.

    Do you want $250k Mustangs? Cause that is how you get $250k Mustangs.

    Holy hell at the weight. It is 300lbs heavier than my ZL1.

    I like it none the less. I suspect I will not like the price and I KNOW I will not like what all the greedy Ford dealers around here will want for it.

    That is part of it, but they chose to paint the crossbar flat black instead of painted. The styling team was going for the catfish look. I think it looks better than what Chevy did with the new Camaro SS front. I stopped by the dealership today and saw a 2018 Camaro with the body color "normal" front end next to a new 2019 Camaro "black out", "Predator Mouth" one and the 2018 was better by far.

    I'm not sure why this is a current fad in automotive styling. You need more square inches of air inlets, but you don't have to cut the nose off the car to do it.

    There should be a stick option.
