    Wow super cool find, Rick! I bet it's going to be an incredible car and thankfully won't suffer from the FPC issues of the 350.

    The rumor of 720 HP is looking pretty solid.

    Cool. It's got my attention. Still rather have a GT350R for now...

    It comes with a CF driveshaft. So I have to ask again why no CF driveshaft on the GT350? FPC vibration?

    Nice to see flow form wheels standard. Let’s hope they’re similar in weight to aftermarket wheels. Can’t wait to see the optional 20” CF wheels.

    That picture has the GT4 wing, so it has the optional CF wheels shown, as it is a "track package". The track pack is the "R" without the name, so maybe no allocation limits. But I bet it is $x$x$.

    Let’s hope so.

    I saw that but haven’t seen CF wheels with ridges on the spokes so wasn’t sure.

    16.5" rotors in the front! 20-inch wheels may be the minimum that will fit!

    I find it odd that they went with just one tire size bigger in the back instead of a square fitment. Widths/offsets must be different front to back.

    I think the front bumper should be body colored. Reminds me of the Lexus grills...

    That's a pretty cool car but the front end just doesn't do it for me.

    Agreed! The front is just not right

    That's a given...just how much a given remains to be seen.

    If Bill P. was selling a '14 GT500 for $52K, the new ones will probably go for over $80k-$100K...ADM's extra of course!!

    I like it. Are they offering a manual? Or is it just the twist knob?

    So it's not a GT4 wing. But the CF wheels are pretty cool.

    The panel gaps look much improved! LOL

    The new GT500 will surly have 700 HP or more. That will come with a price! My Boss has enough stuff for me/us..;)
