    This guy got 4 videos of a prototype wearing manufacturer plates. He asks if it's a GT500, but I don't think so as it's got the '18+ headlamps. Hard to tell, but it looks like it's got a quad exhaust.....and a big rear spoiler! Pity he had his windows up so there's lots of background noise, so impossible to tell if it's a V8......

    Oh...d'oh! Edited to add.... asked the OP if it was a V8....he said it was......

    : pleasebeamach1 : :idea:

    Observations:

    1) Front fender is flared out
    2) Euro backup lamp assembly
    3) There is a badge or something located above driver side rocker at bottom of driver door closest to fender
    4) Suspension is sitting really low when looking at top of tires to wheel wells

    I saw this early this morning also.

    Looks cool whatever it is. Wing seems to stick out quite a bit.

    It is NOT a GT500.

    Maybe a rekindle of the BOSS 429 - because it looks pretty aggressive and they haven’t retro’d that model (yet).

    If it’s a Boss car, then it would probably be a Boss 302

    Before anyone says "Cobra Jet" remember...Cobra Jets are NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT road legal and cannot be registered so there is zero point to put them on the road.

    I almost wonder if this is aero profiling for the crossover. Kinda starting with a baseline and moving up and outwards.

    Can't wait for the inevitable 7.3 engine discussion this is going to create.

    Doesnt mean they can't market a road legal version. I mean they used the CJ name before for parts for the GT500, and for street cars in the 60's. They could easily market a Cobra Jet Package for the GT's or Shelby's. Like how they have the ST and ST Line trims, two very different cars, similar name.

    What I am wondering is why the covered the hood vents. They look taller. I'm not sure what they would change those for.

    That car is not making any engine noise. You would here the deep drone/burble of the V8 if it was. Car was silent as highway speeds...
