Obviously the exterior of the car is amazingly beautiful. But Ford and the designers have really outdone themselves with the interior. I have never seen a car interior that evokes more emotion than this one. It is like an incredible time piece with attention to each and every detail. The use of the carbon fiber around the footwell area is simply spectacular.

It does look to me that the numbers on the door are much further forward than what we have been shown in the past. Is that correct or just the camera angle?
Looks about the same to me as the car at Pebble Beach:

Sweet ! Beautiful Car !! I see HF3 and AJB in the house,, Who's ever it is Congrats !! When putting on any film protection I would recommend doing those small triangular windows behind the main side windows,, They are Polycarbonate and prone to scratch easily if not protected..
Hope you enjoyed the drive !! signed : .. " Envious in Florida Cat " :biggrin

OK, lucky people who've now put miles on a car, I have a question. After working my way through 310 pages of the owners manual I can't find anyway of disabling the automatic parking brake. After a track session putting a cold pad onto a hot disc is not good. In my 12c for example, you keep your foot on the brake pedal and open the drivers door whilst holding down the parking brake button. This disables it and you get a message warning the " parking brake is not set". Is there a similar hack in the GTs software?

Also, a plea for a tiny upgrade on future models; have tire pressure AND temperature sensors, knowing temps is fantastically helpful on track days.

Can't wait to begin learning all the modes with their 'performance' and 'performance plus' wrinkles!

Ever tried to load this post and all the pics off a Bahamian cell phone connection? Took me over an hour, probably spent $1K in data charges. Worth every penny. Oh baby, I can't wait!
