    He put a cobra badge on his GT, he’s a moron of the highest order.

    I wonder how he fixed losing the DRLs unless they are not mandatory in the UK.

    And yes that snake needs to go.

    Yeah, putting a Cobra emblem on a GT just doesn't seem right. It's also a little surprising to me that he got it given his review of the S550 on Top Gear previously (not that he thought it was bad, he just didn't seem to really like it):

    Over here the cobra badge means diddly shit to anyone without pure US gas in theirs veins and it’s black. Badge fascists. But I stopped watching TG after his comments about the Mustang

    I just messaged him about that. Invite him to enter the debate.

    It'd be no different than putting AMG badges all over a lower spec Mercedes.

    I can see your point of view there. But over here a Mustang is a still rare car that draws attention and a Shelby is a unicorn :)

    And which shouldn’t be done.

    It’s like meeting this girl in the bar with some big watwrmelons and getting back to her place and finding out they’re avocados.

    False advertising is evil.

    I especially don't get why you'd put a snake on it when you can have this

    Oh....there's plenty of people here that do much worse things to their Mustang.

    The badge is cringe-worthy, but over-all the car is pretty tasteful. Not too over-the-top.

    Doesn’t matter how rare a car is or isn’t, you’re saying you have something you don’t.

    Which Mercedes themselves have been doing for years, same with BMW's ///M division.

    Agreed, I see people at Carlisle every year who believe a "build" is applying the full American Muscle catalog to their car. Badge aside at least this car doesn't look ridiculous.

    Rory was my favorite presenter of the new bunch...too bad he couldn’t stay on.

    While I’m glad he chose a Mustang for his car, it suprises me that the modifications he installed are so ordinary. No dampers with the springs...the tacky ngage...the import standard CAI.

    I expected a bit more honestly, but I am glad to see another great former Top Gear host joining the Ford stable.

    Correct they aren’t a legal requirement in the U.K. on pre 2018 registered cars

    Can we all stop hating on everything for a moment and have a smile at UK boys having fun with mustangs? Warms my heart.

    Good video. Rory's car definitely looks tastefully modified.
    If Ford produced the GT350 in RHD for the UK market then we wouldn't have to keep imitating. Hint hint Ford!!!!

    Guy was awful on Top Gear. Skipped every segment he was in. Chris Harris is the only reason left to tune in.

    That show was so bad......just terrible. Ultra P.C., tried too hard to be nice, no funny banter between the hosts. Just terrible chemistry, and super P.C.
