I guess GM came up with vented hoods

Personally, I don't like functional components. Give me "form" any day.

Nope competition is a good thing. I hope the Camaro lives on for a long time.

I don't know what would happen to the Mustang if the Camaro dies.... I really hope a long life to the Camaro so Ford can continue improving and trying to beat it's long-time enemy.

I like it... I wish it had the GT500 13-14 grill-style and not just a wide open grill...

Two things I see in that photo that get my attention.

1 - I see the outline of what looks to be a removable plug on the bumper. I'm hoping Ford follows GM's lead here and we finally get a hook that can be threaded in and quickly removed. Certain export Mustangs come with a plug and a threaded bung welded into the bumper at this very location.

2 - The corner of the splitter is retracted much in the way the regular GT350 is. Gives me hope that there will indeed be a more aggressive version of the GT500 available with more effective aero, ala the GT350R.

Also... don’t forget the midsection of the bumper is color matched.

Not “production-ready parts”. Usually on pre-production cars you won’t see the correct part pedigree just yet.

It appears he got it from the guy that runs this You Tube channel


This guy maybe familiar to some GT350 owners, as he just blew his engine and there was a bit of online noise made as, IIRC, he believed the replacement block should have been matching numbers (another story for another day)

Doesn’t matter whether it’s preproduction or not. I can guarantee you that Ford has heard about the conjecture around the center bumper section painted black on non-black cars.

This close to the release of the car, the colors will be close to production. I had a PP 2013 Boss 302 and the GHIG on my car was a deeper hue than the production GHIG. We noted that while at a regional MCA event when it was parked beside regular production #333 GHIG.

The center section of this one is painted continuously with the whole of the car for a reason.

I think the front end on the 350 looks allot better. It has that predator face to it.
