Looks absolutely smashing. Great set of pictures, kraft.wagen . But in your first post, you mentioned it as having "Unique Quad Exhausts". But I can see only 2!

The BOSS 302 makes a comeback! The attention detail is fantastic and the engine/drivetrain/chassis/suspension seem promising. However, I do not like the colour combination options at all. Gun-to-head, I'd take the dark blue one!

Smile Simply stunning

Just awesome but is there any mention on the suspension ? Is it still the live rear axle or do they employ the Independent Rear Suspension finally in this ?

in love with the Black & red cars. rumors are it will be priced between 35-45k USD

Some info bout the suspension
Quote:
The Boss suspension gets higher rate coil springs than the standard GT setup, along with stiffer bushings, and a larger-diameter rear stabilizer bar. Adjustable shocks and struts give weekend warriors a means of firming things up a bit more on race day. Other track-worthy components include fat Pirelli P Zero summer tires and Brembo four-piston front brake calipers.
Quote:
SUSPENSION
Front
Independent MacPherson strut with Reverse-L lower control arm, 34.6 mm tubular stabilizer bar, strut tower brace, adjustable strut damping
Rear
3-link solid axle with limited-slip differential, coil springs,
Panhard bar, 25.0 mm stabilizer bar and adjustable shock damping

this is what i read bout the exhaust
Quote:
The intake system has also been re engineered to provide a throatier growl under hard acceleration, while a unique quad exhaust system made up of two standard Mustang GT outlets and two side pipes that exit on either side of the rear crossover. The side pipes send the exhaust through a set of metal discs to create an extra growling exhaust sound. “We added the attenuation discs to meet legal regulations, but we knew buyers might operate these cars in situations where noise regulations weren’t an issue,” Shawn Carney, Mustang NVH engineer, said in a statement released to the media.

Front end looks mouth watering but the rear is quite off for me; overall a really good looking sports car.

Sadly the design is pretty much the same as the current model.

I gotta agree with you. When I read the thread topic I was hoping it would be of a different design.

Yep but design apart, they have some major modification to the car like the quad exhausts, better suspension, power thirsty engine, stabilizers, air splitters. So thats something to look forward for
Also this design is way better than the old ones like 2000-2004 models
