@monkeypop yep I have seen some of those spy photos as well. The IRS will be good for those who drive on poorly kept roads with frost heaves and root intrusions affecting the pavement. The live axle was not a problem on smooth roads or race tracks. I really hope Ford addresses the real problems: the poor shifting MT-82 transmission which is also flimsy and not durable enough to handle the power of the 5.0 Coyote engine; and also the inability of the current chassis to put down the power coming out of corners. The IRS development could lead to a change in weight distribution (more weight on the rear), and this might help on corner exits. Replacing the MT-82 with the Tremec is more important though, In my opinion. :)

IRS is coming in 2014! Spy shots show the rear suspension and evidence of re-routing the exhaust around the new suspension.

@ Fangio Man: You'll do fine, I took it slow at first, until I got more confident. I'm best at highway driving, since that's what most of my driving consists of. My advice, know your vehicle and know yourself. If you know the car you're driving, you'll drive it well.

@ Viking: Beautiful scenery, I understand why you got an MR2, it was made for roads like that. In middle Georgia, we have a lot of country back roads and long stretches of highway, not to mention dirt roads, the view I get is a lot of farmland, pine trees, fields, and patches of exposed red clay soil. It's scenic, but the roads are a lot straighter.

@Super8 that is cool to know. The Mustang GT 5.0 has tremendous power, and great sound. Also neutral handling, and fine brakes with the optional Brembo pkg. Drinks fuel a lot though, and the shifting could be better. Still a groovy muscle car with great retro styling.

Your interstate highways (autobahn) are much better though since you don't have the silly speed limits we have. I really like driving in Germany. I spent a fair bit of time in and around Schleswig, Thorsberg, Ribe (Denmark) Hamburg, and Lubeck. I really enjoyed driving among the excellent German drivers at high speeds.

@Fangio Man
One thing that is kinda cool also is that we don't have snow or ice. I noticed that the motorcycle riders were going between 50 and 70 mph, I usually travel at least 10 mph faster. Lots of fun. Funny thing my previous car had 412 hp, and my current car only 138 hp, but my actual speeds on these roads are slightly higher with the new roadster. I am somewhat cautious and careful, but I am an ex-competition driver. :)

What a beautiful scenery! You are lucky to live near such roads, here in germany you will not find many roads like the one in the video. Thanks!

@Fangio Man
I have some great roads to drive on out here in the wine country of California, you would enjoy them. I drive sports cars not motorcycles but I did find a video that shows one of our local roads that leads from Napa Valley to Fairfield/Suisun City called Wooden Valley Road: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUYll1h1U5E enjoy!

Now I am more optimistic that I will not crash my first car after a few days. ;D

its nice to see one with the optional scoops and flares, I swear, that should be standard equipment, makes the cars look so much better.

I just saw this this one when I drive around Osaka. I think Ford export small number of GT to Japan since I seen not just one but few of them driving around Japanese street.

Fast good looking car with a great exhaust sound. I sold mine to a nice fellow named Rory. He makes good money as a car salesman at a Ford Dealership, and he doesn't care about the 16 mpg average. He also has enough time to wait for the transmission oil to warm up for decent shifting. He is a big fan of Mustangs, and so ignores the slight drawbacks. I miss the V8 sound, but the Spyder fits my current needs better (good fuel economy in a slick shifting two seat convertible). I still have a Mustang GT to drive anyway since my dad prefers my driving him around in his car most of the time.

@ Viking: It does look good, dark gray is my second favorite color behind black. Great color for a car.

I added a couple of photos from 2 years ago taken while visiting a relative in Maryland. The "grey beast" was good looking!


User avatar

@ Viking: My friend who had a V6 mustang said that she had been told that Mustangs need to warm up before being driven, honestly, who has time for that?


User avatar

Viking  5y ago

Very, very fast car, but the MT-82 six speed transmission isn't all that great. It doesn't shift well until the fluid is warm, and the skip shift is annoying. No simple fix for it either. So I sold the grey beast. Fortunately I owed less than it was worth, so I have a big check to deposit.

I haven't made a comment on this car for months, so I will once again say it is silly to put a governor on a performance car that has Pirelli PZero Z rated tires. The DOHC 5.0 Coyote V8 puts out enough power to the ground to reach maybe as much as 178 mph according to my calculations. Not that fast, so why limit it? I don't think the German cars should be limited either.

Hi Eryk03, you are doing a great job. Thanks.

You must write out clearly to me because I am not able to catch all the bugs. :)

Viking  6y ago

@BR2 okay, maybe I am a bit optimistic in my terms, but I have noted a lot of corrections have been made lately. Eryk seems to have fixed a lot of stuff. So I figured why not see if the horsepower on this page could be corrected as well.

BR2,  6y ago

...Perfected?... -_-


User avatar

Viking  6y ago

Since everything on this site is getting perfected, I might point out that this car has 412 hp/ 418 ps (not 406 hp/ 412 ps).

@Viking

Thas a good reason why i picked the RS5, thee all wheel drive and the weather here, The Nissan ive owned for the past 10 years is also Awd, so it works good, but i neede something different, the RS5 would be perfect, Luckily i can pick the car of my OWN accordance since me and my Wife have our own seperately paid cars. I was thinking of a Challenger, that is a good alternative, Snug and heavy, but as far as i know its only available as an Import and i wouldnt want to pay that Import tax.

And the Boss, Im sad too say it looks like i wont be getting:( Ill have to stick to something thats availabe here, i dont want to sound cheap, even though i can afford to Import the cars here, but i dont want to pay that when i can get something already ported.

I was thinking of a Bmw, but the only car that Bmw has right know that im interested in is the F10 M5, But i dont want to get that, even though it starts at 73k, but i dont buy any car in standard trim.

Also a Infiniti G37S IPL Coupe was inline, but alas, It doesnt seem available here:(

I swear, we either get the good cars, or we dont, wish we could just get ALL the cars, such a shame..

In the past few days, I have been posting way too much. My excuse is that the wine harvest is coming, and starting Monday I will be hard at work with no time left for this wonderful website. Oh well, the sacrifices one makes for good wine!

Of the three, I like the styling of the Audi RS5 best. Pricey, but good looking and fast. Since you are in the UK, the AWD might be useful in bad weather as well. As far as great American retro goes, I don't know if it is available in Europe, but the Challenger has the best in retro styling. I know it is a bit heavy, but I have heard the ride/handling compromise is fine, and great for cruising around. I agree that since Ford doesn't market the Mustang in Europe, the Boss is not a good choice.


User avatar

BR2,  6y ago

I Love the Retro styling also, I think Retro looks best on American and Italians, Some British, but not as good as American Retro styling.

I Am in the Market for a new car, more of a nice comfortable cruiser this time around, as much as i want a ZO6...Not happening-_-(Wifes Influence)

But im curently looking into these.

£78,935 Audi RS5

$27,800 Hyundai Veloster Turbo:
But i cant seem to find on on the UK Hyundai site, Im not sure there available here, if so, it is a damned shame:(

£46,200 Infiniti M37H ATS

Those 3 are what Im currently looking into, there are others, but just these AT the moment.

I was thinking of a Boss 302, But im not gonna export something and pay that extra, even if i can afford it. a Camaro SS is an alternative, starting at £35,025, but id rather go for the ZL1, but like the Hyundai its not on there website, and i would pay it, the GT500 is also a Great alternative, but again export..

I dont care about performance in any way, but if i have too, i have a car for that, im just looking for a comfortable cruiser. I thought about n Audi S6, but why get that when i can get n M5 for 3k less? Id like to stay under the £90,000 Mark, Over is possible, but id like to be around the £40-£70k area.

I wouldnt mind a Ferrari FF, But i cnat afford anywherar near that:(
