    Virginia, Base with Recaros nothing else. Ordered like this to hopefully have one of the first ones and it looks like it worked out :)

    He mentioned off the cuff that they really should have called it the "aero package." I said wait a minute....what about bar diameters and spring rates being different for the Handling Package? I did not get the sense from his response that it was anything other than a Gurney Flap and the splitter wickers.

    It looks like we won't know what we've bought until it's to late to do anything about it.

    I called and talked to Andrew and got the same answer, I guess we won't know for sure until someone gets a 2020 GT500 with the handling Package and posts it on here or one of the other forums.

    I don't remember reading anything about there being any other features in the Handling Package other than what is mentioned in the Order Guide with the exception of the adjustable strut mounts. I am glad I removed it from my order.

    I viewed the order guide as exactly what you are getting. $1500 "Track pack" is three pieces of plastic.... Hence, I didn't order it. Aftermarket will make copies for $150.

    Check this out. This is from Ford.com

    The most track-precise production Mustang ever
    "Adjustable front camber plates are available to allow Shelby GT500 owners to dial up more negative camber for better grip and high-speed cornering at the track. Custom-tuned bushings built into the camber plates reduce harshness and noise typical of aftermarket plates for more comfortable use on the street (included with Handling Package and Carbon Fiber Track Package)."

    On second thought, I don't know how much I trust Ford's information.

    "Michelin Pilot Sport 4S and Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires
    Ford Performance-spec tires from Michelin, offered in two levels of performance, feature all-new tread designs and compounds specific to Shelby GT500. The 295-305/30ZR20 Pilot Sport 4S tires are offered on the base Shelby GT500 with all-new 305-315/30ZR20 Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires offered on the Carbon Fiber Track Package. Unique Ford Performance-spec markings on the sides denote the custom tire configurations."

    Explorer the 2020 Mustang

    It looks like the Build & Price feature is now available for the 2020 Mustangs, it shouldn't be long before the GT350 & GT500 will be on the list.

    New top speed? 186 MPH

    It looks like the GT350/GT500 have a one car only exterior color.
    Ford Performance Blue

    I just looked at the new 2020 Mustang Build & Price and FP Blue is not available on the regular Mustangs.

    That is one of my favorites. Torn on choosing either white or black stripes. White is more traditional, black would be easier to maintain (think of rock chips and fixing them with a black sharpie.)

    P.S. I hate the fact that the Edge ST also can be had in Performance Blue.

    Bug blood doesn't show up on black stripes.

    Are we not allowed to fat shame a car anymore?

    Thank God the giant white cobra sticker looks to no longer be planned to reside on the rain tray.
