I waited until today to go because I got in free, it was hero's day. All active duty military and veterans, along with police, fire, and EMS personnel got in for free. Anyway, here are the pics.

The base or non track pack looks like a meaner GT350. It looks really good. I would not mind seeing the GT350r wing on it....but perhaps that is the best for the GT350r alone.

I was at the Cleveland show too. I’m guessing that show car mule has a manual transmission in it. Why else would they have all windows blacked out?? The other show cars don’t have this dark tint? Ford doesn’t want the public to see inside this car. Can someone get close and peak inside and verify?

I like to disassemble things.
You can see inside that car past the tint. It does not have a manual transmission in it.

Non of them will have a manual transmission from what I've been reading.

None at launch will have manual but chief engineer did not rule it out when the car was launched at Detroit Auto Show. I strongly believe the manual will be offered. It may be job 2 or 2021 offers manual. When it gets a manual, ford gets my money.

It won't be getting a manual. At least not while it is S550 based.

Is it me, or do the rear and side pics look like a typical GT350, with the exception of the bigger snake and bigger wheels and brakes. It would be sleeper for unsuspecting drivers who think it’s a normal GT350.

It looks more like an EB or GT from the side due to no side vent and it looks like a GT500 from the rear if you really know what you are looking at. For most people it will just look like a Mustang with big snakes on it. They will ask you how you like the Cobra.
