Ford screwed up the design of the Mustang rear section. They need to shorten the section behind the rear wheels by 6-8 inches and redesign the shape of the rear bumper and tail lights. As is, it's just plain ugly.

That said, the front end is as beautiful as the rear end is ugly. Put a Camaro rear end on a Mustang front end and you have a hot looking car.

If that weren't a Mustang that would've been a cool video... lol J/K :seesaw::tweetz:

That things sounds good. I'm most interested to see how different CAMARO puts the power down. Hmm....

Cool video

Here is a leak. The Mustang actually out braked the Camaro. Those Saleen 15" front six piston calipers with Cobalt Friction pads were a drastic improvement over the OE Ford brakes. The OE brakes were gone after just a handful of laps. The Saleen setup is good to go for another session or two.

I love the Mustang from the front and back, but the side profile of the car is so blah.

I know what you mean. The more traditional styling of the Mustang doesn't stand out like the Camaro. Maybe that is because I am a GM guy at heart. Having typed that, when I picked up the Mustang is was very average. My partner in AU described it as a modern version of the 68. He absolutely loved the look. Then he drove it stock and said 'too bad they made it drive like a 68 Mustang.' Now that we have dialed in the car with suspension, brakes, tires and wheels it doesn't feel like a 1968 Mustang any more. I am almost embarrassed to say this. I am a GM guy. I enjoy driving the Pedderised version of the Saleen Mustang. It is a really good car. Strike that. It is a fine automobile and a long way removed from the showroom version.
