    I just can't warm up to the front end on that car. Puts me in mind of a whale shark feeding.

    I think that can easily be remedied. Someone (VoodooBoss?) Photoshopped the black bumper with body color & stripes

    Posted 2 sec too late....that's the one!

    I think the better look was the rendering with the painted front bumper that was posted here.

    Looks good. I posted that photo but can't take credit for the render.

    That is definitely an improvement. Never ceases to amaze me how usage of colour can so dramatically change the appearance of a car.

    Thanks for posting , I am just a human ping pong ball since I love her both ways ---super aggressive maw devouring Camaros, or the rendering that makes you just want to take her out to dance and show off to your friends!

    Funny, it took me some time to warm up to the 2015+ and the GT350s, but DAMN. They knocked it out of the park on the GT500. I cannot WAIT to see these things on the track!

    Painted bumper could/should be an option

    Plankton Beware! Painted option would be the only way to go IMHO.

    Guess I might be the only person who prefers the Supercharged Soul Sucking Maw of Glorious Track Shredding Doom(TM). I think it looks too busy when it's painted. I'll take one, avalanche grey, hold the stripes please.

    I dunno. Looks aside, big question I have is driveline coolers. Without them the thing is a poser car. They seem to be talking up the quarter mile which is uninteresting to a road course track rat. Ford says there will not be an R, so I suspect there's not going to be coolers either? Without them she's like that really gorgeous girl at the dance who can't add 2+2 and get 4.

    My dream dual purpose car would still be a base GT350R with a stoutly built CPC 5.2.

    We'll have to see but this excerpt from this article sounds promising:

    The engine has a new cast-aluminum structural oil pan, which has both static baffles and hinged doors that open and close under high g-forces to fend off oil starvation. Ford Performance chief functional engineer Ed Krenz says this allows for sustained track survivability without a dry-sump system. Likewise, says Krenz, the upgraded cooling package compared with a GT350 will keep the engine happy on long track runs. It includes an air-to-liquid intercooler mounted atop the supercharger, an upgraded radiator, an engine-oil cooler, and a transmission-oil cooler.

    It does look promising and might keep the engine happy, but it's always the diff that causes the big problem. My stock 5.0 can cause diff overheat issues so then for sure this car is going to have the same problem on a bigger scale.

    It's probably just me, I've never been a fan of boosted cars, it's like anyone can stick a blower on and make a gajillion hp, but a NA motor making big power from minimal displacement is a work of art. Such as the Coyote.

    Don't forget the Road Runner Boss engine and the original Voodoo FPC.....All tho the Voodoo did come with the guzzler tax.
