Default 2020 Mustang GT500

95,000$ is it worth this amount?

I don't know how I feel about this. Almost 100 grand for a ford mustang that isn't even a manual box

I see nothing wrong with a $31K Egoboost Mustang 2019.

I recall that OMG feeling when launching a TT Supra. That car had 320hp.

That's the most hp I need, to have fun and enjoy the car to the limit. The limit I can handle. To be honest, I can't handle any more power and would wrap myself around a tree if the car had more. Not afraid to say that GLD can only handle ~ 300 hp range because it won't cause me to loose my Man Card.

No, youre right. I had a LS1 firebird with 300hp and that was more than enough to be fast, i get what youre saying. I caught myself speeding way too often because it was just too easy to cruise at 90 on the freeway. Sold the MF

Never had one, i had the pleb spec RS with the boat anchor 305 and a mullet, but I think those IROCs are going to be fetching huge prices at barret jackson here before too long.

These cars were heavily tooled around by HS kids later back in the days, as they became cheap.

I don't know if there are many survival IROCs left, and would think they would need to be restored.

Worth it? Not sure, but compared with other similar things in the segment, they'd be silly not to price it as such. People will buy it.

Manual? That's going away, and you're going to start seeing it less and less. Unless a car company is out there making one "just for fun", it is actually a bit silly to make a fast car with a manual box since it is slower.

Fun factor and nostalgia is different, I get it. But honestly if that's what you want, get a 5.0L Mustang with a manual. Want the best of the best? You're not gonna get a manual (usually).

Nice, post pics. Those wheels were bad ***. When the wheels rotate, it sort of winks at you. I guess that's the attraction of Fat-Fives.

I wanna see a comparison test against a absolutely base manual ecoboost 4cyl vs this car with a drag race, lap time, and also 450 mile economy loop. I will only accept the test if doug demuro is forced to ride in the trunk for the duration of said eco loop and it must also be performed during mid-August in Atlanta, DC, or Death Valley.

trust me, there are a lot of cars which much more power than that you can handle. The suspension, tires, and chassis got so much better in 25 years that its easy to have well over 400hp and feel less intimidating than that supra.

P100d is probably the best example of easy to explore hp. You’d have zero issues with that car and its 700hp.

lol good point.... Fastest 4 door sedan in the world. 0-60 in 2.3 seconds. Never drove p100d specifically but driven a model s and it's quicker than most cars in its price range, and never felt once out of control.
