    That’s actually really accurate.

    Snake is going to be a little bigger, flares will be bolted on and painted to match, and the msrp is a lot closer to their guess than I assumed Ford would allow.

    Breach of contract suit against this leak is sure to follow.

    I want to get on the list, but I can't see dropping 80k on it. That's used 911 Turbo/Ferrari 430 territory

    I don't like the fender flares if that is indeed an accurate rendering. They look like an afterthought.

    The render ignores the fact that the bumper beam will extend forward beyond the grille as shown in the official photo Ford released months ago.

    That wasn't an official photo released by Ford, if you do some research you'll actually see that was a rendering commissioned by MotorTrend.

    Grille is horrible, lacks personality. Have to wait and see.

    I really hope that's not the front end of the new GT500. Looks horrible like a big fish mouth or something.

    I'm well aware of that. In fact, those renderings done in different colors were done by me.

    I wasn't referring to those bird's eye view renders anyway. If you do some research you'll find a front end view from Ford which clearly shows what I was speaking of.

    Oh, everything I read said that was a "leaked photo" and not an official photo from Ford like you said, my bad.

    Any chance you could provide the link from Ford on that so I can check it out?

    Fender flares borrowed from Mopar? That's not a clean look at all.
    Glad I don't have the new GT500 itch currently.

    Both that video and the picture on the main page are renderings.

    Did I miss something else??
