In this day and age, Ford still continues to put a radio antenna mast on the right quarter panel. What would it cost them to integrate the radio antenna into the rear window like most vehicles nowadays. Then again, this could be one of the reasons they didn't need any of our bailout money. But still, that thing is ugly.

Looks jacked up like a Subaru Outback. It seriously would require a 4" drop to look respectable. I don't know why Ford builds cars like this. Even GM is figuring out the ride height thing and finally has wheel gap under control.

+ Is horsepower, engine design and decent fit/finish interior.

- It's a mustang...Ford REALLY needs to come with a tweener vehicle (not as old as a taurus and not as im a 16 yr old as a mustang) and i'd give them serious consideration.

Never liked the look of these new Rustangs. I would rather get the new Camaros.

I love the 2010 gt500, friend just bought one, the tires are just not big enough for it, even with the computer limiting throttle due to break in, at 4000 rpm the rear tires just light up

his is going to shelby for the 800 hp, it is very easy to drive and rides nice stock, I dunno what 800hp is gonna do to that

I would seriously consider this car if it weren't for the fact that the price tag will be in the high $60k's. I think it looks amazing and mustangs handle a lot better than people give them credit for.

LOL as if your C63 interior is awe inspiring. Come on, it falls in the same category as a GT500. Before you ask, yes i've sat in one.

My co-worker got a black/black one last month. Fully loaded, he paid MSRP (which is amazing). The '10 is much more visually appealing than the '09, just from the subtle exterior mods.

I guess you could consider the interior "plain," but not like an e9X isn't any less plain. The tires are too small for the engine, and the wheels are 1-2 sizes too small for the wheel well. In person, the car is far nicer looking than in pictures.

Overall, the car is light years ahead of the old mustangs, as is the build quality. He hasn't let me drive it yet (rightfully so haha), but the motor is fantastic and as previously said, the car handles far better than you would imagine even with the SRA.

Especially the 2011 models. They can easily out handle our cars, currently matching M3 specs and track times according to the latest tests.
