Your opinion has been noted, NightHawk.


I like the stripe along the bottom.
Sheís a long car, and itís a nice offset.
Iíd like something like that on my GT350.

Fordís traction control unit is pretty intrusive in normal and sport modes.
Which is fine with me. Unintentional tire slippage whilst making a right hand turn at 5mph isnít something Iím down with.

I like it a lot. I'd imagine the 525hp version would be saved for the Boss, and likely be 5.2L with a crossplane crankshaft.

I like nearly everything about it. Looks great. The only thing I don't like is the Mach 1 graphic decal on the front fender. I know it's paying homage to the original font and model but it just looks so out of place on a modern car. I'm shocked they're putting the Tremec in it from the 350 actually. I still think the SS 1LE is going to be a better buy though.

I never understood that 525 number floated. The motor is stretched as it is.

It's a parts bin car. Parts bin cars are largely the best buys if costs are held down.
The biggest issue with the regular GT is the MT-82 (I will never buy another car again with this transmission) so the inclusion of the Tremec is a huge upgrade providing this car isn't considerably more than a GT with the PP2.

Given how expensive the current GT can be, there's really no excuse not to fit the better tremec box. The V8 Camaro has it.

Out of my price range but there's something about that package that looks awesome to me. Can't wait to see on in person to see if it changes perspective.

Totally agree. I don't know how Ford was let off the hook for so long offering that crappy MT-82 all the while the Camaro has been offering the superior Tremec....which has a couple of flaws still of it's own.

yes, the phone is way more important. I honestly think if one of these automobile manufacturers offered the top tier ultimate phone with purchase of said vehicle, people would buy the car to get the phone that you couldn't purchase otherwise.

Can you imagine the wider public trying to operate these flying drone cars so many companies are working on? People can't even handle 2 dimensions of movement, now they'd need to master three??

MT82 isnt a bad transmission, its the clutch and shifter thats the issue.
Come drive mine with a twin disc and fixed mount shifter. Its a night and day difference.
