Thank You Ford!!!

No words, just turn your audio up and enjoy.


This car is mental and I must one day own one. As much as I want to compare it to the M4, you really can't.

I've always been a fan of American muscle, and especially with today's advanced engineering in the C7 Corvette, Mustang, etc. But I don't see the point of a muscle car that can't even drive in a straight line.

I like it. DSC was off I see.

I can imagine the typical American Muscle Car lover will complain about the high pitch wail of the exhaust. I think it sounds awesome though.

Until Ford stealerships stop applying $70k ADM on the R, nobody in their sober mind (or with limited fundage) will consider buying one.

I agree. It will outperform the M4, amongst most everything else but, paying 6 figures on a Ford that isn't a GT is ludicrous.

Yes, you read that correctly....70k ADM on top of $70k MSRP equals.....

Have the weight specs been released on this? Really hoping for below 3,650 lbs.

Sure if you are an insecure b*tch that care what others think of you.

Head to Cars and Coffee, enthusiasts will drool over a GT350R. The engine is more European than the Europeans.

Exactly. And next year when the Shelby gt500 comes out and is faster it'll be $40,000 used.

Yeah, I don't really see the point of the straight-line muscle car. Good body lines, sounds, etc.--impressive on a certain level. However, if a professional driver has to concentrate so just to keep the damn thing on the road, how many regular drivers are gonna out that car in a ditch.

I'm not sure if that's what he meant. I like that GT350R sure, but there's just so many of the near identical looking cars on the road. They're a dime a dozen, there's just no individuality at all to them. I'd never own one just for that reason, but it's still an amazing car performance wise.

It is, and Ford will sell every one of them, ADM or not.

There won't be a shortage of people concerned about this car's styling or if they'd be mistaken for driving a rental car.

It's $63k, not sure where the $140k comment came from. Even a used Fezza with a FPC costs a similar amount and has no warranty.
