Im glad its comin in new colors. Te white with blue stripes was nice but with the body kit it just didnt seem quite right for some reason. That front fascia just doesnt agree with me

Pity they didn't copy your idea for backup lamps in the rear license plate area. I know those round lamps are 'sposed to be identical to ones used in the original GT350, but retro only goes so far........


Looking forward to seeing some decent photos (not that I don't appreciate the leaked ones).

I thought the body panels on the production car were going to be "better integrated".. still looks tacked on to me. You'd think with all the fab they did in other places they would have made a one piece rear facia

The rear doesn't look too different (if at all) from the pre-production cars. The front, however, is slightly better integrated.

I agree with you on the sound. I heard it in Ferndale last August and was amazed. I'd smoke one with ya!

To the OP, thanks for the photos!

Agree...the front was improved, which is the area that looked more broken in the lines to me.

Did I mention the sound was awesome? Did someone else mention that too? :-)

Is it bad that I just want the internals of this car and nothing else?

I thought Shelby said they were only offering it in White/Blue stripes? At least the Red and Blue will hide the lines on the rear bumper/valance better...

By looking at the pics of the red and white GT350s I assume the ducktail spoilers have been misalligned on purpose to signify and continue the Shelby tradition.

Dat ***... is nasty. If anything Shelby's made it worse. Backup lights in the bumper? Really? And the center exhaust? Why, exactly? Those awful light trims and panel. And WTF, you couldn't put the name on the spoiler like it belongs?

Ugh, that's hideous. I am disappoint in the front too, just not digging the lines.

But I bet they go like stink, right? So that's all that matters.

/not.
//seriously, those Geico Cavemen would have done better.
