Wow, really? Let me guess... rear spoiler? Front splitter and air vents? If you are a mustang fan and dont like what this car is capable of and the looks are part of why its capable, then you need to go play elsewhere.

The GT350R is going to beat just about anything on the track, and its going to do it while being able to drive it every day. The Aero Kit, including the rear spoiler, creates this little thing called down force that racers really like. Do I like the looks.... nope, but its there for a reason as is every other item on the car. It is 500lbs lighter than a standard GT, has around 100HP more than a GT, has more Aero assistance, has some really sticky tires, and its going to destroy the Z28 and who knows maybe the new vette as well.

And you think its crap.... obviously you have issues.

I think you're taking a person's opinion a little personal. There are a few generations of mustangs and all aren't going to be fans of every one of them. I don't particularly care for this body style as much as the last but there are aspects of the car that are cool. To each their own.

Engine mods - all stock, trust me, wanna run??!!!

It's functional and typical to how Ford designs their Shelby models with styling slightly overstated highlighted with bold accents.

Really diggin the recaros! Hopefully they are different pictures and the accent colors match the car and vise versa, i like everything but the spoiler. Just a little to agressive for me but awesome car non the less.

Not taking it personally, just think "Boy Ricer Crap" is a little harsh for a mustang guy to say about the best performing mustang ever built. The Mustang is no linger about how fast you can go in a straight line. I have had about every mustang style you could want and Loved them all. There has been more than one I thought looked bad, or had parts on it I dont like (including the one I drive daily) but we should be appreciating the mustang for what is is, not getting stuck on what we think it should be. The greatest thing about the Mustang is how easy it is to make it unique to you, but if you don't like what someone else has done with theirs... its not crap, its just not for you. Ford has stepped up the performance game, big time, and this GT350R is the pinnacle of that game. Just because you don't like the looks does not make it crap, especially ""boy ricer crap"... of course those boy ricer crap cars have been kicking out butt on the road courses for years.... maybe we finally got something for them!

Well, I used to road race the pony cars in the 70's.........and compared to today's Calloway Camero or Corvette to whom this GT350R is competing against...yeah, from a visual street legal race car, yeah, it's got a little too much "Boy Toy Racer" styling......

ie..."BTC"

Ya know, the people who think they have 600 hp or if they really do, couldn't drive a 600 hp car if they tried.

If it serves a purpose it isn't rice, or Race Inspired Cosmetic Enhancement. That spoiler is definitely a little fugly looking on the mustang, but hey, it has a job and probably keeps you from putting that expensive thing into a barrier. I'm sure some lunatic will put a blower on one of those and it will need all the help it can get at that point.

I also do not like the look of that rear spoiler. The rest of the package is fine, the interior is stunning...
FORD could have created a spoiler for this model that offered track adjustments, both hight and pitch could have been incorporated into the design,to adjust for + - downforce, no different that suspension adjustment ( camber).
Overall, great looking ride tho, and yes this IS my opinion, not a bash!
This is really no different than Tom hates green, Paul hates blue and so on... the rule is: get what turns you on... when you post a pic of ANY ride, expecting positive as well as negative reviews is quite normal, thank god for freedom of expression!

I figured there be "R" version of GT350 we all knew they would just when. Think Z28 better run and hide but will have to wait see that happen. Did you see other vehicles to like Ford GT40 super car and new Raptor using V6 eco boost
