The amazement is of course the 460 HP 7k rpm engine but the suspension isn't far behind.

As for this I would suspect they offer a 2.7 EB with a bit more HP than the 2.3. The other option I could see is Ford offering the PP2 setup on the 4 cylinder. I imagine with the SC2's and other suspension bits it would be a hoot with a 4 cylinder turbo. Being able to mash the gas and having the car grip and go will do a lot for the fun meter.
It handles poorly relative to the Camaro. Fortunately for Ford, GM can't figure out how to design a car that people want to daily drive no matter how well they otherwise perform.

I think the gig is up for the Transformers styling that started back with the 5th gen and the new corporate front end is hideous.
