    It may well be. Still looks bad-ass though. ;)

    For some reason it now looks incredibly European.

    There's actually a couple Mustang's that do rally cross in my region, they're awful at it but at least the guys are having fun doing it.

    It's American.

    American cars only do straight lines and left turns. (as far as the rest of the world is concerned.)

    American cars only do straight lines in the same way that British and Italian cars only stay on the side of the road with smoke pouring from the engine.


    It's just stupid to think that.

    Mustangs in particular have a few weak links that need to be corrected, namely chassis stiffness and front suspension geoemtry. Until then they are pretty terrible at cornering. Luckily once these issues are corrected the car is very competent around corners.

    Not quite sure where to post this, so I guess it's a soon-to-be custom.
    He drives the same car as me (with different stock engine)
    He wants to put a mother :censored: 2JZ engine in it. And get 600 HP- which is...150 HP more than the freakin Brabus edition.

    I truly see no possible way this could end well.

    The front is an abomination.
    Which V12 is that? Any idea on HP?

    The V12 looks like the GMC V12.

    GM made a lot of V12's. So did Ford.

    And when were said v12's put in production? I can't think of any examples off the top of my head other than the GT90 concept.
    I know that Ford owned Aston back in 1990-whatever, I'm assuming those were Ford's V12's?

    Aircraft engines? Didn't Ford make a plane around WWI-ish?
