    ...that doesn't look like the GT350. That looks like a Shelby GT, a package that shelby will sell.

    Look at the rev limiter. It isn't 8250.

    That's custom, I can guarantee you that's not a production GT350 (I happen to know the launch team is still working towards Job 1 lol)

    That looks like someone just modded a GT. Doesn't even have the Performance Pak gauges which are standard on the GT350. I would say it's a fake.

    Fixed it... anyway it looks pretty good IMO. I like what they did with the front end.

    It's... different. Can't say any of the changes are an aesthetic improvement IMO.

    Interesting but I don't think I like what looks to be wheel center caps behind the windows on each side... I could be wrong?:doh:

    ...or are those Cobras?

    That was my first thought too. Just looks like a GT with some stuff slapped on here and there.

    On another forum someone said this is just Shelby American's new Shelby GT which is essentially just a modded GT with some performance upgrades.

    The design is not cohesive. Looks worse than a regular GT. The upcoming GT350 looks awesome. The Shelby GT shown here looks like JC Whitney got involved.

    I really liked what Shelby did with the previous GT350, (except the ones that had "GT350" as part of the stripes on the hood) but this new Shelby GT is kind of ugly. I don't like the grill inserts, the badging sucks and the little wing is just weird. I don't like the new GT350 rectangular badges either, but over all it is a much better looking car than this thing.

    I like the stance........and I like the hood. The rest aren't to my taste.

    Still, it's good to see another aftermarket S550 :)

    So glad you posted this, I was going to just reply and say this is the release or Beta version of the 2015 Shelby American Package...so not a fake IMHO...I DOUBT this will be the final version, but they are on the right track...love the rear valance and exhaust, again IMHO...From what I have heard end of January this will be announced. Pretty cool this was caught in the wild!
