    Yea, they shoulda kept it like the concept, convertible is stupid, the grille is too big, the hood is ugly, it needs stripes, and its too expensive.

    They pretty much outright jacked the Evo 8's hood.

    $44,000 for a supercharged V8 that runs 0-60 in 4.5 seconds, and its a convertible? thats a great deal.

    Just not feeling this car... I think if I were to spend that much cash, I would either get a newer Saleen or perhaps one of the Boyd's. To me, the body just seems a bit more streamlined and sexy on the Saleen except for the tail lights. I don't like the one that's blacked out, because I would like to throw sequentials on it if I got one :thumbdown:

    there nothing about it that sets it off from a 05 gt, the body is basically the same, atleast the Roush and Saleen has something that makes it stand out above the rest....

    Thats one of the main problems people had with the 99-01 cobras, they had a Gt rear and alot of other things that didnt really allow them to stand out as something greater or better......

    The whole aerodynamics is shot on that car as well this thing is heavy as a pig.

    I would pick a corvette any day. Light weight aerodynamics and better overal engineering. Ford thinks it can sells its products with high hp numbers on a crappy chassis design

    I'm not too sure about the hood. I wouldn't want a vert anyways if I was getting one of these cars. Still, it doesn't look too terribly bad.

    Does the grill look fugly large now or what. Affirms my belief that this throwback mustang still makes my older (99-04) bodystyle newer.
