not really big on stripes on a car, but I do like the center stripe on this one... for it to be a test mule with a set of stripes, I'm guessing that some of the engineers were just having some fun with a pre-pro car... but the whistling sound makes for some interesting conversation.

This car is probably going to be directly aimed at the Mustang GT500.

I am wondering about the whistling sound. It would lead me to think that it is supercharged as well except for one thing......the hood vent is not open. It would stand to reason the the General would open the vent on an S/C car. I'm thinking the whistiling noise might just be the pulleys on a high compression engine. It is getting really exciting on the boards now all these finds are great!

Very cool , ...it's great to see they are (and I'm sure having a lot of fun with it) testing stipes as well

Those stripes do nothing for me, if that's all that is offered I'd have to go stripe delete, no big deal.

How many Christmas mornings am I going to have this year?

I'm in agreement about the hockey stripe. I hope there are a lot of options when it comes to striping on the car. For me, it's either the racing stripes or nothing at all.

i agree with you asrapid...lol. i'm with everyone else, the stripes do look somewhere past hideous, but i'm sure it's all testing stuff. and as for the whining noise...well, call me a heretic but i'm not sure if i want a factory supercharged engine. ok, let me rephrase that, i'm indifferent about it. i would love to have a na engine that is as snake eater, and then put a blower on it so it can be a snake destroyer! but to each his own! i know, i'm just kinda old fashion.

You dont need a vent open for a forced induction engine it dose not even need to be open on a N/A car... just like the "ram air" on a WS6 its not a sealed system... btw why would a H/C motor make that sound just cause its H/C ? Ive seen plenty of H/C setups and have never heard one whistling unless there running a pete jackson type gear drive wich has nothing to do with pulleys..

The whistling sound is probly the S/C if he really heard one in the first place..
