This thing is running an up-tuned version of the Predator 5.2L Supercharged engine and its $300K? Wow. Ford is nuts.
Does have a different transmission that is mounted in the rear lmao

Ford trying to go down the Coors light marketing Road ? ... trying too hard here to be something it isn't.
Ford has been racing for decades. Not sure what you’re getting at here. It’s the very definition of a halo car, much like the Ford GT was. And they need to produce it for homologation rules so that they can race the GT3 next year.

You figure Ford has to have something to compare with the new ZR1...I think they actually put out a supercar. Twin turbo, mid engine and pushing north of +800hp. The fact its being built by Multimatic is dope. They put out some gems...

Does anyone know what the wheel lug torque specs will be and are the lugs 1 piece or 2 piece. Just asking for a friend that we know won’t agree…….. Seriously though, I get what/why they are doing this and think it’s great. I also wish this would have happened years ago, so “maybe” some of the tech could have dribbled down to our price level cars before costs went crazy. 🤷🏻‍♂️

I like it a lot but not with those horrendous fenders of some sort of transformer , would look so sleek without thoese poxy over vented fenders , the rear Wing looks killer .

Homologation special.

I think it's cool as hell, especially the hardware, but for the price I think I'd rather have a Porsche GT3/GT3RS. They'll still sell every one they make.

Gotta love Shmee's energy in every vid I see him in.

That said my thoughts and impressions:
What I like/love about the it:
All the aero and cut-outs appear functional
The front end - honestly the dark horse should've had this front end, we'll see how long it takes the aftermarket to do it for the DH and the GT.
The design of the Magnesium wheels and the fact they are made of forged magnesium
The look of the widebody.
Titanium Exhaust (finally titanium for the V8).
Sport Cup 2R tires
Multimatic Semi Active Suspension (Remember Ford GT's drop)
Swan Neck wing

What I hate:
That cost: My god why can't we have cool cars that are affordable. I feel like ford had a chance to really stick it to Porsche and AMG Black Series but I guess that's the cost of Homologation.
Manual, what's that? Seems ironic that the S650 went on a hole spiel about save the manuals when it was introduced to the world, but whatever I won't be able to afford one anyone.
Weight: Yeah the S550 and the S650 are fat cows, and even with a full carbon fiber body its still going to weigh something due to its inherent bones.
Supercharged V8: Look don't get me wrong I love the sound of a supercharged V8, but my god if just think about the eargasm that could have happened if the car was a tweaked version of the race engine tuned to screaming to 9K RPM (keeping in mind that Porsche's engines are N/A in their GT3 and GT3RS).
Price
