Alright I have let too much time lapse on the update of my car. It was delivered on August 22nd. I’ll include a bunch of pictures and newly released video that we put together about it.

This thing is 180 degrees different from the 05-06 cars no doubt. I have had some time to get about 700 miles on it so far. Very easy to live and drive daily if you were so included. Quite fast for what it is and just a ton of fun to drive. I applaud everyone that gets this car, take it out, and enjoy it. I am lucky that I was able to get one for sure. Plus I need to give a hand to DBK for taking in my car initially so it could be wrapped ahead of time and Kevin K for handling all of the pre / during / post sales side of the equation. Oh and Steve Coates for the best delivery presentation one can get.

A whole bunch of photos are here :

Our excellent video is here :

Awesome 🍻 That is one amazingly glossy black machine :cool:

Looks like you might want to cut out some driveway concrete and bring it up to lessen that dip :unsure:(y) ... or just raise the car!

Congrats!!! Waiting for the call to spec mine. The reviews keep saying it's so raw, impractical, etc. so I'm glad to hear you can daily it.
Man, it looks so good in black!

Thanks everyone. I really love this thing. You can't attempt to transfer the experience from the prior gen car to this one. But I equally love both for their own reasons. Hard to grasp without being in each one. Granted I am still learning my way around it still.

Plus one of the really neat things about the current car is the change in its behavior when the wing is up at speed.

Torrie. So sick in all black. Love it, and really fun video to watch the delivery experience.

Keep the reviews coming, and good to know about the daily drive-ability.

I like that you have the white and black contrast now with your other FGT! Nice. But man, the black looks so mean and down to business.

Congrats!

Thanks everyone. The white GT is like driving around in a giant cartoon character. It's always a good time to roll in that thing. Plus it has the FRPP headers so you can hear it from a state away :)

We have another episode planned to showcase the 2 cars and try to highlight the differences with more on road footage of both.

No red calipers .. Are you against them? Played out? Just curious, as so many cars do have them these days, including my old beast :whistle:
