You misspelled fasst. /thread.
You spelled it wrong.
There’s a stripper trim 3400lbs 2019 mustang eco boost for sale. Go drive it side by side with a 3750lbs gt350r and tell me if it feels lighter or heavier. I’ll wait.
The 03 cobra was a fat ass at the time too. It was 3-400lbs heavier than a stripper ss, or gt. How did that go again?
•irs made it heavier.
•supercharger made it heavier
•iron block made it heavier
•adjustable driver seat was stupid heavy.
•bigger brakes made it heavier
•wider bigger wheel/tire package made it heavier
•thicker sway bars and beefier knuckles/hubs/spindles/steering box, made it heavier
At the time the car was 500lbs heavier than a z06 corvette.
Arguably and easily, that car was and still is punching well beyond its weight or contemporaries and it’s resale value shows it.
You can say this new gt500 is a fatass, but it will punch well beyond its weight class, and hold its value far better than the rest of its contemporaries.
Ferrari 599 (meant to say the 2020 Ferrari 812 super fast) is pushing nearly 4,000lbs from an NA v12 2 seat coupe. The gt500 is pushing 4150lbs (200-300 heavier) with a price tag 1/5th the size, with a mod friendly sc 5.2 able to handle 4 digit power, 4 Seats, bigger trunk, and with 9/10th the performance or more.
this isn’t 2004 it isn’t that impressive when guys are running mid to low 10s with a coyote without much issue. I don’t like the new gt500 because IMO ford could of done a lot more to it. People have waited years for the top
Dog to return, and well it’s not doing anything new or special besides the cool DCT
Humor me, what more could they have done in your opinion?
It could have been whittled from a block of carbon fiber, had 809hp plus Ford could have FedEx'd you a FTW purple tuned ECU and it should have been AWD.
Oh and FE is so 2019...It really should have been ME.
Should have been TT V8/DCT.
My only disappointment but I may be crazy enough to pull off the TVS and install a sleeper Hellion kit in time.
I think they gave us a killer platform, I’ll do some mild mods and keep this one wife night friendly
