hopefully this means the 350R prices go down. I've been eyeing those.

Damn good looking car and stats to back it up. First Ford that I would actually buy.

Very doubtful, the 350 is a very damn good deal. There's a ton of performance and luxury bits to justify its current price. I can't see it going lower without Ford losing a ton of money or scavenging sales. It's priced right, if not maybe a tad low for its segment

I bet that heat extractor would look great on my Lightning. As for the car itself, what's a Shelby without a stick?

Funny thing is you get double the Performance for less than a GTS. Mind you fit and finish isn't the same, but the Recaros and performance make it easy to ignore. Plus, Ford is far ahead of the game with CF wheels on a car less than $80k. Haters gonna hate, but this is a badass car nonetheless.

Definitely agree, I couldn't believe it when I saw the carbon rims. Good job Ford, making everyone else step up their game.

GT350R has CF rims. But yeah, you're getting super car Performance without having to pay super car prices.

I've always had Mustangs. Cheap way to go fast. Decided on something else this go around hence the M3. However, might have to snag one of these up when I return to the states.

Looks terrible. Was hoping to see something that would be definitively better than the ZL1 1LE. But I guess you can’t make that call until we see how it performs.

I honestly thought it was going to look like one of these two:

Anyhow, the point is...$95k or less, more Performance than you can get with any other car that price. It's a Super Car without a super car price tag.
