Please ford bring back the ford GT
Tin Nguyen Aug 19, 2012
Forget all that. What about 13" wide in the back? I had 315 on my 10.5. Wonder what will fit 13. 355?

Bruce ford had a road going version in the 60s with only 305 bhp and the ford gt in 2005 was a beast also. Ford also power the cobra road cars in the 60s and the S7 in 2002

Ford had the thunderbird, which was fairly performance oriented. They do need something knew though
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 19, 2012
I agree Bill but the Mustang has been Ford's only hi-po sports coupe since 1964; the GT40 was a race car Chevy has always has the Corvette & Camaro; now Dodge has the Viper & Challenger

Adam I've watched a comparison at laguna Seca by one of the main mags and the gt500 won that race. Give up there to even
Mario Callirgos Aug 19, 2012
You wont have to ship this to Italy to hit 200, that's for sure
David Justice Aug 19, 2012
Totally agree Bill. Ford needs the GT or at least a high performance flagship. The mustang can't do it all.
Justin Routh Aug 19, 2012
Nobody wants to hear the same shit michael. This thing will dominate the strip, and thats what muscle cars are made for

850bhp with a live rear axle, smart move Ford.

This is amazing on all levels
Tom Van Nostrand Aug 19, 2012
Looks kinda derpy with that underbite.
Andrew Hossann Aug 19, 2012
The only thing it needs is for the front bumper to even up or be lower than the skirts, then it'll be perfect
Devin Babyn Aug 19, 2012
I'm really liking the (guessing) fake cooling intake in the rear quarter. Looks real good
Drew Storrusten Aug 19, 2012
Oooooh.... Wow! Inspiration right there.!!!
Adam Beiersdorfer Aug 19, 2012
Why did they have to rivet the bogus inlet on the good? They would have created a real, fully functional one that was naturally built into the hood... Outside of that... Not a bad job, but isn't it outshined by the 1000hp one?
Jackson Chan Aug 19, 2012
One word...beast!!
Duc Ngo Aug 19, 2012
You guy look at so beautiful awesome body powerful .
Bruce Scott Aug 19, 2012
That's phat!!! One tough pony.
Domi Bsaibes Aug 19, 2012
850 hp looking car! Nice job
Tin Nguyen Aug 19, 2012
Deep dish and stagger make the stang looks so good.
David Justice Aug 19, 2012
On another site it says this Mustang has 345 rear. I hope Ford is taking notes. Mustangs are notorious for not being able to put the power down, I bet with a 345 rear that won't be much of an issue.
Drew Storrusten Aug 19, 2012
And now that I think about it... I don't think that hood scoop is functional... :-/
Drew Storrusten Aug 19, 2012
Well this I my question.. I don't remember reading it at all, but is that hood scoop functional? If not, then it's kinda lame, but If so it fits. Idk just my opinion. But I do see whether they should've used one or the other not both.
Patrick Schalk Aug 19, 2012
Yeah they needed to pick one of the styles. Not use both
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 19, 2012
Maybe but its not a big issue
Spencer Warkentin Aug 19, 2012
I don't think that's nit picking at all Bill, the hood is a big part of any car and I agree this one doesn't really look great
Drew Storrusten Aug 19, 2012
With the wider rear it just seems more..... Race worthy. And aggressive to its competition.
Jordan Jackson Aug 19, 2012
Wow, just noticed that the rear was made into a wide body, it looks really good
Abraham Mendoza Aug 19, 2012
That's a really beautiful Mustang. It looks so aggressive, I love it.
Jamie Mcpherson Aug 20, 2012
I'm Impressed and I'm a camaro fan!
Drew Storrusten Aug 19, 2012
Mmhmm!! Yes prease!!!
Danny Burns Aug 20, 2012
Fake hood scoop ?! Mr. Shelby would cry...
prodrag Aug 19, 2012
Take that off please.
Tom Van Nostrand Aug 19, 2012
Whoever did that part should be fired. Sort of an insult to Shelby to tack on a high drag fake scoop on that car.
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 19, 2012
Yea they could have done a better job or left it alone.
Jordan Jackson Aug 19, 2012
That looks like an after thought... And I love these cars
John Jenkins Aug 19, 2012
no need for fake air intake...
Justin Routh Aug 19, 2012
They should have left it alone
Devin Babyn Aug 19, 2012
I hate it. I don't like the hood stock and now with this on there. God it's bad
Read Mills Aug 19, 2012
I'm not sure about this...
