5.8 Trinity Gt500 is a better bang for the buck in terms of stangs. 700 Hp is not really that nuts anymore... Unless the GT500 handles well it will be shadowed by more capable machines. Just about any stock modern V8 muscle car can achieve 700 crank with a power adder and fuel. Coyote, LS3, 5.8 trinity, 5.4 condor, Hellcat, demons, Zl1's, any gen 4 engine + vette.. you get the drift. they can all handle 700 crank stock block with boost and fuel.

hopefully its not a one trick pony...

That would be awesome. Maybe a ZL1-1LE-R, lol. Rolls right off the tongue.

I can't see it being less that 747. Probably 750 or something like that

HAHA Yah the naming structure must be confusing for non enthusiasts. Although I can't follow Mercedes line up at all with all of their alpha numeric jargon.
How about we call it the Camaro Panther. Known to hunt kittens and ponies.

did ford make the GT350 splitter carbon? I dunno if a carbon splitter on a car that is used on the street would be a good idea. i know it's really strong material but if it breaks i'd rather not replace a carbon splitter lol
