    I'll just go over the high points

    5.4L DOHC 4V engine, iron block (same configuration as the 550+ hp Ford GT - except for the iron block), rated at "more than 450 hp"

    8.5 psi from twin screw blower (not the same cheesy eaton from the lightning and 03 cobra)

    Rear suspension design is based on the same design that the race mustangs are using to win Grand Am races. Not independant rear suspension

    low key interior with lots of black leather, all chrome trim replaced with satin finish

    14/13" brembos, 19" wheels

    The last cobra had a beastly motor, and the new one should be even more exciting. Plus, the car now has a chassis to be proud of :cool:

    If they can price that between $33,000 - $36,000, then THAT'S my next car.

    It's not going to be CHEAPER than the '04 :hsugh:

    The word now is 5% increase over the '04. So like 37ish

    In the article, they say SVT is NOW working to design other mustang models, in line with the previous Bullitt and Mach1 :x: :bowdown:

    Depends on the dealer. They went for under MSRP at some. They were only marked up in stupid markets like california

    If you're patient you should be able to snag one brand new for that kind of money by the end of the model year. :cool:

    It will definitely be the toughest SVT vehicle (other than the Cobra Rs) to get, but with ~7500 per year made, they'll be out there to those who want them.
