'20MY GT500

Postby Twin Turbo » Fri Apr 13, 2018 11:02 am

First "spyshots" (I mean, its got a bloomin' snake on its nose, so they're hardly trying to hide it!!) of the '20MY GT500 :)

What do we know so far? Not a lot!

"Venom Kills Demons"

Rumoured to be powered by a 700+ HP supercharged cross plane crank (so traditional, not like the GT350's flat plane crank) 5.2 V8

For me.....I'm really disappointed they've kept the "old" pre-'18 headlamps. Whilst there's nothing wrong with them, I personally feel the '18s are much more aggressive. Perhaps one reason is to tie it in with the current GT350, which even in '18MY guise uses the "old" headlamps. The rumour is there may be a crossover year with both GT350 & GT500 on sale (early '19MY for GT350, late '19MY for GT500). But if that's the case, why use the '18 tail lamps?

Lamps aside, what's not to like? :)

I'm sure this will be a beast. $$ aside, I think I'd go with an '18 Shelby Super Snake from Shelby American......especially in wide boy form! I'll take mine in Orange Fury with black stripes, roof n wheels!

I can't make up my mind on any of it tbh. I'm still not digging the S550 style, but they're not helping with all the extra frills and bulk here.
The area around the Lamps on that is about the only thing I do like. Otherwise it's a bloated, pig nosed, plasti-fest with blingy Hot Wheels wheels.
