    My source present at the dealer meeting in Vegas told me that the new GT500 will be between 780 to 790 HP and will offer the 10 speed automatic as an option. Ie) a manual is coming as a base

    Updated with leaked pics:

    Eyes were on the car. Lots of carbon fiber and aero. Cell phones were checked at the door. No photos.

    I like the wheels. Looks like they might be carbon if I’m seeing correctly on the front wheels what looks like thermoceramic coating.

    Rest of the car...meh. Might grow on me

    I love the car, not crazy about the shade of blue in that lighting though. Want to see it outside in the wild! I'll be interested in one.

    However I was really hoping for a DCT. I wasnt exactly happy with the 10 speed in my 17 Raptor.

    It looks good, really digging the venting around the headlights. I think the GT350 is the better looking car though. It's far more cohesive. Still, these are potato pics.

    Nobody ever likes a new car when it first comes out, we always gotta let it grow on us..

    Those renderings that came out from Motor Trend earlier this summer were actually pretty dead on.

    Feel like we’ve been waiting on this car since 2016. Release the thing already!

    The specs are a bit off that you have listed, but that's her.

    What's funny is it doesn't have the derpy droopy front end of the 18 GT. Man Ford missed it with the GT's front end for 18. I can't wait til they change it.

    The frontend looks terrible.
