    I see some people have a very difficult time here with certain things.This was not started to pit the 13-14 GT500 against the new one.Going by the numbers any FOOL with half a brain knows that the new model out performs the old one.The DCT by itself is a monster.Then the magnaride is on another level.The 13-14 GT500 clain to fame was the power at the time,the top speed and the PRICE.

    sooo you're saying the fact that he'd get lapped every 10-12 laps is a bad thing then?

    And I don't think they ever listed the lap time.

    Is there even one person at the Texas mile who GAF about a stock car? Seems to be big old turbos and meth to me. In which case, the top speed of the GT500 is irrelevant.

    13 / 14's are bench mark cars, stats the 20+ can't match...( well it did match 0 to 60 in 3.5 sec. )
    200 top end & 24 mpg means no gas guzzler tax. ( 20's = $ 2600.00 )

    Sixteen seconds slower per lap at VIR. Yeah, that was quite the benchmark.

    I feel like the only Ford people putting down the new GT500, are the 13-14 owners. I see it in thread after thread.

    There's nothing negative to say about the 20+ GT500s. I'm sure a couple 13/14 owners are a little salty for whatever reasons. Personally I still prefer the 13/14s, for a number of reasons. But I also haven't driven a 2020 GT500.

    It's insecurity because the 13/14 is no longer the top dog 500

    The 13/14's can't match the all around performance capabilities of the 20's. I had 2 13/14 gt500's, they can't touch the new ones

    Yeah but I mean, I don't remember the 93-01 Cobra owners getting all butthurt when the 03s were released. Nor do I remember the 03/04 owners getting butthurt over the Shelby when it was announced.

    Man I should be pissed my 2017 Viper GTSR only has a top speed of 177! Now I feel like I got ripped off.

    Wasn't referring to you in that comment, although the insecurity seems to apply
