Oh Lawd, please provide them boys and girls at Ford the wisdom to install a twin turbo kit in the GT500 that produces a conservative 850 hp at the motor.

Please grant them the courage to offer either a six speed manual T6060 or 10 speed auto transmission options.

Amen

From what I understand the TR6060 wouldn't be able to handle the power without extensive modification...although, the ZR1's TR6070 is basically a TR6060 with an added gear and different ratios, but it handles its duties in the ZR1 just fine....so, I'm not sure what the deal is there. Maybe development cost? Don't want to develop two different transmissions like in previous GTXXX cars?

Also the DCT is almost assuredly a faster transmission, which translates to a faster car.

If I was the new CEO at Ford, my first order of business would be to call whomever is in charge of the Shelby program and tell him to “land the fucking plane” with this GT500 prior to me landing the company helicopter on his office. In the same call question why Ford doesn’t offer a supercharged F150 5.0 option (this truck is a must).

Then call the head of Mustang engineering and find out why the hell we are producing shitting oil pump gears and why we are still dropping communist, junk MT82 transmissions in these Mustangs as compared to the T6060s (fix that quick). Also, what the hell is up with the squirrely suspension in the base models? People are barrel rolling their mustangs and killing crowds, especially canary yellow S550s!

He was president of a school and then a furniture manufacturer, I don't really trust the man to run Ford any longer

No ones going to care about this car when it comes out.

Buy a 5.0 GT slap some boost on it be faster for way less.

Or buy a used GT350 and throw boost at that for less aswell.

They’re still going to care about it... it’ll be selling for over MSRP for sure I’m betting when it first comes out.

Only reason Id stay even remotely interested is if it gets a DCT.
