    True Ford believers had better hope it rapes everything in the 1/4 mile and is easy to mod. Otherwise Ford and SVT stand to lose some serious face with this car.

    Every enthusiast forum is taking shots at it now. :mamoru:

    All these GM And Chrysler forums make fun of the weight, but ironically the cars they drive weigh nearly as much if not more.

    I'm assuming it'll be easy as fuck to get power out of. Hell, terminators made 500 hp so easy it wasn't even funny.

    I'm a Mustang guy...or was, I've never been onboard with this modular crap really, but 4Klbs and 40K (not counting insane markup) is fucking rediculous.

    This POS is the 3000GT VR-4 of today.

    Yeah, modded 600rwhp GT500s will be outrun by heads/cam ls-1 f-bods.

    600rw in a fox is 9 sec. capable - in this 4Klb pig, hello mid 11's! :greddy:

    After the story of Ford closing SVT was reported Ford came out and said SVT isn't going anywhere. They will release an SVT tuned truck and Fusion.

    I would love to see it be great, but lets face it, the weight is just hurting it.

    Yes it will have a badge on the car that says Tuned by SVT. That is completely different from the SVT that made my car.

    SVT IS CLOSED

    I'd take the GT500 over that. It won't be breaking half shafts, the interior is light years better, and it has the real and distinctive Mustang styling. Production is supposed to be a bit lower as well, bodes well for exclusivity and collectors.

    and loving it :big grin: - but I'm not everyone.

    The Mustang is supposed to be the common mans affordable pony car. 40K for a Mustang that shares the same basic EVERYTHING with a car HS cheerleaders all over the country will be driving, no thanks. I'd rather have a C6. No matter how much power, it's still a Mustang. 4k lbs is fucking rediculous. 3300 Should be max, should be shooting for 3100/3200. Seriously, 4K, is a heavy duty towing package available, if so I will pull a triple axle car trailer with it, I mean it's heavy like a damn pick up :ugh:
