    No pictures were released. It was shown for 15 second increment for those who waited in line to see it at the 2004 Saleen Car Show, in Irvine California. I was lucky enough to be there, and waited in line twice to see it. It was the in a dark gray color, and we only saw the front of it (rear was unshown, and said to have a "SUPRISE"). The wheels were disgusting, and it wasn't aggresive looking. There is one fussy picture floating around of the actual thing taken by a couple of my friends, but really doesn't show anything. It will debut for pictures at the Anehiem Convention Center this week (10/27/04 - 10/31/04). I am not sure which day it will be there, but I was told by the man himself to look out for it (Steve Saleen). I have been in love with Saleen's for as long as I can remember, and when I saw the 2005, I was disapointed. Mabye it will grow on me, but the 15 sec. that I saw, I didn't like.

    i'm actually not diggin it really. that front bumper just looks too busy... i also dont like how the grill is red (but that can be easily fixed). and why did they put a hood scoop on it? seems kinda silly to me.

    I'm not digging the 1/4 window covers (c-pillars?)

    The front bumper looks like a BW bumper

    Overall, I don't like the rear end of the 05s. To me it's just too blocky. I like the look from front and front angles not showing the rear, but as soon as you include the rear in the shot, it ruins it.

    I'm sure it will grow on me and be ok when I see it in person.

    If they got rid of the thing in front of the front wheels and got rid of a set of fog lights, I think it'd be good :) :thumbup: They hood scoop doesn't look bad. '03 or '04 Cobra type induction would look better kind of like the concept.

    i think the fog lights in the grill should be moved to the lower part of the bumper and get rid of the fog lights below the headlights.

    The wheels a 18x9 front (265/35) and 18x10 rear (295/35) same as the "new wheels" Roush relased for the 03/04 cars.

    That front end doesn't stick out much more than the factory bumper cover. And the grill lights are Ford issue, so blame them not Roush.

    The rear of the '05 cars can be seen on www.fnsweet.com in the "special Roushs" section of the album. They made a ROUSH bumper finally, and use a NASCAR looking rear wing flush to the trunk.

    For all of you saying it look "rice", I strongly disagree. "Rice" is reserved for vehicles with un-need non-funtional parts. This car is anything but that. Those 4 piston brakes are the size of 80% of the wheels on this board. I won't even get into hp/tq right now until those numbers are offically released.

    I'll pass that on to them.

    Even if you do think it's rice, at least it has the power to back it up. This might not be the final product yet either. They still haven't officially released them. If anything, it's just a bit busy in the front... not rice :crazy:

    :uhh:

    Everyone talks **** until they come out. If ya'll havn't noticed the front bumper has to come out that much on the stockers as well, support beam and cushion has to go somewhere. lol
    I think its really nice, get rid of the amber signals. Hood scoop needs to go. The quarter panels need to have the old 67 Fastback Panels, and you've got yourself a real looker :thumbup:

    It's at least functional. Nothing wrong with form following function.
