    Is it the same in the front as the gt350? I was watching a video that said that the GT500 is wider in the rear as well? giving it more of a wide body set up for bigger wheels and tires?

    Same width in rear as a GT350R

    Front is wider then any other Mustang.

    Front fender is the same width as the rear.

    Rear quarter panels are the same as any other 2015+ Mustang.

    I believe it was 10mm extra per side on the front over the GT350.

    Speaking of fenders, I kinda wish they’d maintained the fender vents from the GT350. It’s a minor complaint but has always been a design feature I like on the Shelbys.

    This is what makes the 350 the sexiest of the mustangs. Front end is perfect and menacing, side view is gorgeous and the side vent gives it some exotic flair. They should have kept it along with the the GT500 front end. It would have definitely added something to the car.

    Damien: I hear what you're saying about the fender vents and it does look pretty cool. But personally, I prefer a clean fender.

    To me, it’s great that they gave the GT500 and GT350 their own relatively distinct looks without breaking the bank instead of just putting a different front fascia, a wing, and some badges on and calling it a day. I’m looking at you Audi! I appreciate the effort Ford has put into these cars and I now own my first American brand. We may disagree but we both won. I love both of them much more than the stock mustang look. Way more.

    I couldn't agree more on the looks, Damien and yep, we both won.
