  • Quicker than a C8

    0—62 in 2.2 seconds?

    It's a lot more expensive than a C8, though

          Of course there are super- or hypercars that are faster than the C8. But those are usally end up being garage queens that are never moved while most of the C8s surely will be on the road daily/weekly.

            More speed , less attractive than the C8 and if you look at the side rear it looks like the rear of a C5. Looks like a Kit car to me with outdated styling. I would rather go 298 mph in a C8 than a twe decade old design.

              Yep, the C8 earned its stripes in the drive throughs of McDonalds throughout the prototype road testing period.

                I remember when the RS200 Ford group B race car did 2.6 seconds with a 600 HP four banger and four wheel drive but it was a race car not a car you can drive to dinner or take a vacation in. I've owned one car that did 0-60 in less than 3 seconds and it had 580 HP and weighed 2300 lbs but you couldn't drive it to dinner or listen to the radio in comfort of A/C, my plan is to be the first guy to wear a C8 out.

                  Saleen used to be the go to guy for the mustang until Mr Shelby hooked back up with Ford in 2003. 06 Shelby GT-H. 08 ShelbyGT500 KR. Then the 05/06 Ford GT . The rest is history.

                    Normal human being pricing of c8 of 60 to 105 grnd loaded makes a comparison with super expensive hyper cars kind of silly..

                    most guys who buy that hyper expensive stuff never drive their cars ...so if we even see one other than a cars and coffee its pretty rare..

                    i never get too excited about ultra rare rarely driven products...

                    its,like a peoce of artwork that no one but the owner gets to enjoy for the fact its a trophy...

                    i dont need trophys in my life...I want to add excitement of use otherwise (and its just my opinion) i have little use for it.

                    life is too brief and busy not to get maximum use out of our toys...

                    so much so I use my toys everyday!
