    That rotary dial shifter triggers me. It's not even the missing manual trans, it's the fact that it has the same gear select as a fusion or explorer now.

    I can't wait to check one of these out in person and see how bad the panel gaps are.

    Wow, nice detailed shots! And that is one healthy sized supercharger.

    So I found some photos of GT350 exhaust manifolds that matched the perspective of some of the GT500 manifold photos SID took. Safe to say it looks like Watson is supplying the same manifolds? I see little if any difference...

    Yeah, those look identical, but there's no telling if those are actual production pieces.

    Wonder what the ground clearance is? Looks like 5.5 maybe 6 inches. Foot box looks bare with just 2 pedals. Does the parking brake, pull on a brake cable or lock the trans in 2 gears where it cannot roll. So much for milking the parking brake handle for a controlled stop. I like the carbon fiber wheels, but not all over the interior. Not a deal breaker though. Throttle body looks like it might be a hp killer. Glad to see the exhaust headers instead of cast iron manifolds. Less weight, but they look restrictive for 700+ hp.

    It has secondary calipers for the parking brake.

    Great pics! Thanks! I wish we knew a little more info on the car like HP, weight or even a starting price...
    Ford seems to be pretty tight lipped about their performance cars stats until they are released now days.

    Do you know if they use electrical solenoids or a cable to motor drive, etc? Just curious, thanks,

    Don't know for sure. Might be able to figure it out from some of the pics. My guess would be a motor and a cable.

    Interesting to see that it's port fuel injection only. I would have thought dual injection would be beneficial on a boosted engine like this. Unless I totally skipped over it previously, I actually don't recall Ford addressing the fuel injection system at all in their press briefings?

    I'm still looking for this to come in alot closer to 800 than 700 hp. Just basing that off adding 12.5 psi to a Gen3 5.0L, assuming the 5.2L will maintain the same vol efficiency, subtracting for supercharger drive loss, and taking into account the OEM pcm tune.

    Thanks for the pics Sid.

    I read in the initial releases, there was not enough room for direct inj with the supercharger.

    It has a little to do with the amount of time this car has been in development. The hard points were set before the DI system for Coyote was fully developed.

    They are going to need to add some security to the wing. With a simple allen-head bolt and nut those will be getting stolen left and right.
