Maybe start at like 75ish? I could see it being 85k too but much more than that and they're gonna have a hard time moving them. I think that's about where Challenger hellcats are priced.

That engine note though
I think the front of the 350 is great as well as the rest of the exterior styling.

Ford doing great, yet again. BMW could learn a thing or two.
RE: BMW could learn a thing...the crazy part is the GT500 will likely be no faster than the BMW Stang aka M850i. I know, different animals, AWD and torque converter auto, but it's not an invalid comparison.

Pretty sick, but I'd rather have a 350 I'd bet. N/A!

The 8 is the same size as the Mustang? Thought it was way bigger for some reason.

Id probably take this over a ZL1 for the sole reason of visibility. It actually boggles my mind that they allowed a car with that small of a windshield to be put into production. The mustang isn't great either but the current camaro feels like driving a chopped rat rod.

I haven't driven a new mustang yet, but having driven a new ZL1 and SS recently, they aren't that bad for visibility except for the C pillar area. And no, I'm not super tall, just slightly under 6'. All the horror stories I've heard made it out worse than it really is.

The visibility is way overblown. Its about the only negative with the car, so its the only thing that gets written about with every journalist. Its no different than my 911 was for visibility.


Be curious to see what this mustang can do on track.

Weak.


That huge ugly 8 series is tho. Its colossal in person. Have you seen it? And to your original post... the M850i weighs 4450+ lbs and has 523 hp. Not a good comparison at all.

Edit: More info. From what I see a M850i runs a 1/4 mile in ~12 secs at 116ish. A Mustang GT (yes a lowly GT) runs it in ~12 secs at 118ish. How do you think that the M850i will be faster? Were you kidding?




What they did with this thing is better than I expected. I'm impressed.
