Re: GT 500 1/4 mile Run

Yeah, it was towards you. The new GT500s are nothing but a serious let down to me. There is nothing to set them apart from a GT...or a V6 for that matter. In the past, there was at least an aura around a cobra that just felt bad ***. There was a look...and a feel. The GT500....not so much. Order it without the stripes, and it will be hard to tell the difference without seeing the hood. I can at least pick an 03/04 out of a mustang lineup. The GT500s...well, they won't be that way to me.

Never the less, I think ford completely dropped the ball on this car. With the weight gains (which will eat up a good bit of the added HP), the solid rear, and the total lack of design (the concept was a ton better than the released version...don't get me started on the cheap *** stickers, gay shelby badging, and horrendous hood and cobra emblems)....I am nothing short of fully disappointed in this car....and I can't wait to rape the first one I see on the road to see the look on his face after spending 70k on it.

Re: GT 500 1/4 mile Run

The bumpers and wing are totally different.
*edit* wheels too.

Re: GT 500 1/4 mile Run

Yeah. The front bumpers, hood, side skirts, rear bumper, spoiler, and wheels are all different. You can even get the interiors with a leather-covered dash.

By that thinking, a 2003-2004 Cobra is also just a GT with an engine. As well as any other special edition Mustang Ford has ever made.

I don't understand why people get so pissy about this car. It's a pig, yes. So are the 03 Cobras. So are the 05 GTs. It's not Ford's fault that dealers are selling them for ridiculous prices. It is the dealerships and the consumers.

Re: GT 500 1/4 mile Run

after seeing the 1/4 mile run, you can make a v6 whip its ***... easy for fewer dollars than 70k, then have money to go to the bar and celebrate a victory over whipping some prics *** cuz he's in a 70k dollar car.
very disappointing... rob's cobra would tear that thing to shreds...

Re: GT 500 1/4 mile Run

These places never put the kind of stress on the car that true drag drivers do. I guarantee they didn't dump the clutch at 5k....

It would beat me on foot, so as long as it does that, I'd still drive it.

That statement is a major ricer argument and shouldn't be used to make the 03...or any other car for that matter...look any better than another. There is always a cheaper way to get a faster car.

The truth is, take an 07 shelby...and an 03 cobra...stock. They are running near identical stock 1/4 times (1-2 10ths difference with a very skilled driver). So, that 110 stock HP increase (ok, about 80 since the 03/04s were under rated and had closer to 420). and 8k more in price, you get 2 10ths? There is a much better way to invest that 8k....I would expect a much better increase than that. Stock for stock, it is a drivers race because of the SUV weight class.
