I like it, don't love it. The 'whisker' airfoil intakes don't do it for me. Get them off the bumper front and I'll take it, although it does look like the mouth of the 'preditor'.
We were told wing is larger, so I like that. That wing would be fine with me, just raise it another 3"

Edit: and just a thought by the quick look. I expect to see more venting than that picture. That wont be enough.

That hood won't work, but I like that direction.

The tacked on black plastic is played out now. It’s been a thing for nearly three years. Lets let it go.

Time to get some refinement back into the exterior design.

2019 Shelby GT500 Does Exist !!!

Dear Darkane ~ Well as I previously stated and contrary to your statement the 2019 Shelby GT500 is real as per Ford's announcement at this weeks Detroit Auto Show :ford:

Just Sayin :first:

Jubilee is not a good example and doesn’t actually fit your model.

They’re actually a fairly large dealership and the only SVT dealer servicing Saskatoon and area. One of two in Saskatchewan I think.

I purchased an R there, and they were fair.

Now, the season and the fiber of person who comes from Saskatchewan is a lot different than Alberta or BC. They have winter even longer than Alberta and three times longer than BC. Also farmers don’t tend to drive Shelby’s.

And although you say you’ve ordered a 500R (which doesn’t exist) I wouldn’t be telling people that. It is false.

Also, I feel for your surgery please do some research on the Gat Goran procedure. I think you might be a poor candidate but they’re leaders in the field.

The point I was trying to get across was dealers can’t allows orders or deposits on vehicles that don’t exist. At the time your dealer gave you a “Right of first refusal”.

But I digress, enjoy your new ride when it arrives. Earliest estimates from today are 15-16 months.

I had a deposit down before the 500 was announced. It was not a big deal, everyone knew it was coming.

Just sayin'

Looking at the video released by Ford for the 2019 GT500 there are two things that seriously bother me;
1. The front grill looks like a Lexus with the all black design. This makes the front end featureless and is a gaping Black Hole. Soooooo UGLY and soooooo dated.
2. No air ducts in front of the back wheels. Is this a Track Car or a pretend Track Car ???

It is not terribly original but it most certainly looks nothing like a Lexus. Why would you want ducts in front of the rear wheels? The engine is in the front as are all the coolers.

I think they look similar with the big black open mouth and angular edges surrounding it and the Mustang came later so I would call it derivative.

Seriously are you kidding me !!!
The Black Hole grill is just like a LEXUS and your photos prove it. That is soooooo UGLY and sooooooo yesterday !!!!!!
The middle bar needs to be painted ( white in the above photo )
From the side the car look mediocre at best. Add air scopes in front of the back wheels and it will look like a real race car. also the braces for the back spoiler look cheap. The GT350R spoiler looks MUCH better !!!!

Allow me to collaborate with this beauty.
I have to retouch it even more to make it look more real but the idea itself

I really do hope the GT500 gets both front (like GT350 and that render) as well as dedicated rear fenders - it really needs a little more differentiation, plus being able to run an OEM spec rear 19/20 x 11.5-12 wheel with a 315-325 sized tire would be __swell__.
