I found out what the two new inlets were for.. and where some of the inter-cooler air exits..

WOW!!!! stunning... These are great photos... but not sure there is a way to take a bad photo of this work of art!

I noticed a small white remote control sitting under the center display... guessing that is where you select smoke, oil slick, rear cannon turret while in escape mode?

The only thing wrong with that car is the potential availability.
BTW, the seats appear as close together as a GT40!

It's been a year and we still haven't seen the engine compartment. I think it's really 6 gerbils on wheels chasing carrots. :)

The white is so pure. Come on Dave . . . you know the white it the best color yet. Interior shots are so cool. As others have said can not wait to see the power plant and under side.

Why does is scare me that you might have to 3/4 take the car apart to see anything, as its sooo stuffed in there....

I don't believe the engine compartment will be jaw dropping like our 05/06 GTs. One of my favorite things about our cars is the engine is so cool to look at. The V6TT won't be any man jewelry stuff. Having said that it will be the car itself, as we have seen in the photos, that will blow everyone away: the looks & the performance! Can't wait!

There is another item which has been added to this car.

When I saw the Blue show car knowing a little about air flow, heat exchangers and pressure drop it was obvious the square amount of inlet air area for the side pods intercoolers appears to be larger than the direct path air outlet via the tail light area.

I do see there is additional outlet venting in the lower valance area but air downstream of the heat exchanger is at a lower pressure and air does like to change direction.

Forcing the air to a lower point in relationship to the inlet point is less efficient.. So with that said it appears they did add a NACA duct to the Fender pods on the inside of the tunnel . Forcing high pressure air to the cavity on back side / low pressure side of the heat exchanger will help push the air out and help the inlet side process the air more efficiently if you move enough air via the NACA duct you would create an aspiration effect on the intercooler air flow .. For the record I did notice that on the Mule car and mentioned it :biggrin.. it must be an effective necessary solution.

It shouldn't, and it's highly unlikely that you will find yourself working on the car.
