Looks like that 5.0 was driven down to the dealership for a special racing event. (Gainsville Florida). It was gone the next day.

Monday we will be assaulted with reviews once the embargo is lifted. Till then I will be constantly checking the net for spy shots ect.

Thumbs up I'm so jealous!

I'm so jealous you are one of a very few that has had the privilege of driving one.Any thoughts on the EPAS steering or the SKIP SHIFT feature.

Don't worry, I wouldn't pay the Skip Shift much mind, it's not some thing new. Computer Aided Gear Shifts or "Cags" for short was introduced in the 4th gen T-56 equipped Firebirds and Camaros all the way back in 1994. Needless to say it didn't take very long for the after market to figure out how to disable it. I can not see how this car would be any different.

Well then, I might need a time machine because I can't wait any longer! lol

I wonder where all of the leftover 2010s will go at the dealerships. Our Classic Ford has like 9 2010s still on the lot, including a Shelby.

Yeah, I went by there last Sunday and saw them all out front by the road. I didn't see a Shelby though. I'm assuming that was in the show room. They're going to have to nearly give those 2010's away to get rid of them.

I doubt a dealer with any great amount of '10's left over would bring out the 5.0 until most of their stock is gone. Then they'll have to blow them out with 0% financing.
