It already broke cover in europe, so go for it..The new supercar Mustang was unveiled at the Las Vegas Ford meeting in front of the moniker GTD. Carbon fiber body, transaxle, 50/50 weight balance, 800+ hp. I have pictures that someone took but kind of afraid to share them.
Wild, is this the mid-engined car that Multimatic is building?
I don't think it would make a difference in the overall look, but I can guarantee that this will not be available in the style of an outgoing product design. There's absolutely zero point for Ford to offer that. With the S650 shape it can at least claim to be some sort of halo car for that model line.
I wonder if you'll be able to order one with a more S550 look. The S650 just looks weird with all that aero hanging off it.
Apparently yes. I had a hard time believing they stuffed the engine behind the driver in a Mustang. But it has sort of been confirmed. Also 95% that it will be a hybrid. Apparently it was whisper quiet when it pulled on stage but had exhaust noise when leaving the stage.Wild, is this the mid-engined car that Multimatic is building?
Well I looked up the definition of mid-engined and its very vague. Just that the engine is between the two axles. So it could still be in front of the driver. I was trying to figure out the need for the huge fender vents if the engine was behind the driver.That lower front grille is very Ford GT'ish. Makes me wonder if this is using the Ecoboost V6 with a hybrid front drive assist or if it's just a dry sump engine mounted far enough back that it's a "front-mid-engined" car like the Mercedes AMG GT or something.
