To buy that car, you have to say no to:
M3
C63 AMG
SLK55 AMG
GTR (Not that hard to say no to)
Porsche 997 Carrera or Targa
ZO6
Cadillac CTS-V
And the most obvious and cheapest, the 2010 Shelby GT500.

Id rather eat the money in $10 bills.

I was going to say that I might take one in a regular color, but I'd have to be a billionaire farting money because there are so many better cars I'd get first.

Looks extreme to me. I like it, as a show car. I would never pay to own one though. Not even sure I'd like being seen driving it, but it is pretty cool.

An enthuist I guess? Guess you have never driven either?

While the paint job is well definitely not my taste and I cant say I would buy one. A buddy of mine has owned at 07 Shelby GT500 and currently has an 08 Saleen S281. I have driven both and the Saleen is sick. Interior and fit and finish is definitely a step up from the Ford offering. His daily driver is a 550i, so I guess I will still remain friends with him.

From what I've always heard, Saleen is a bit more elite than Shelby; less mass market. I suppose its the difference between Dinan and AC Shnitzer or Ruf and 9ff though.

None, i do not care much about Mustangs and have not tried either. Saying the Saleen is better in quality is like buying "Premium" processed food, it still is rubbish (from all the high res photos floating on the internet).

It does show the lines really well...I wish they'd do this iridiscent paint with a different combo of colors...like multiple shades of black and white...
