Ford Is Lying!

Too bad they couldn't use 93 octane. Regardless, this is one strong pony.

395rwhp? Damn!

LRA's are capable of more whp than independent rear suspension equipped cars but very impressive nevertheless. Cannot believe you could buy these 400HP muscle cars for the same price as a 328 with plastic seats and 10 inch wheels.

I think the same thing as well. It's hard to go back once you've been spoiled with Euro precision but this is definitely something to experience.

So a hungry Ford is a GOOD thing. Lets hope this isn't all wasted enthusiasm on a car that's going to die horribly due to some cut corners..

I didn't. That was just a mocking based on the sloppy nature of mustang handling.

I drove a 2010 GT, and I can tell you, the handling is NOT sloppy.
