    well,
    Jeremy Cluckson oughta know about ancient chassis**, since his is a lot older than the Mustang's


    ** my dictionary says the plural is spelled the same way



    on topic (sorta)
    I wonder if they have an auto-or-DCT that can handle this much power
    &
    hope they're using this as a testbed for the 700hp 5.0EB LincStang I've been speculating about

    662 hp will be good when a bunch of wannabe drag racers are comparing dick sizes .....
    Clarkson's opinion is for "Entertainment" purposes only.

    FORD made a whole lot of improvements to handle this power. Look it up...

    I'm happy that Ford has upped the ante again, just like they did in the 80's when they lobbed the first grenade in the second American Horsepower War. I'm looking forward to a comparo between the GT500 and the ZL1. I imagine the fairest editors will break things down by category saying which one is better at street racing, at the track, on the Ring, as a daily driver, etc. I also hope that Ford builds an SVO model for the new Mustang with an EB I4. Perhaps GM will respond with a turbo I4 as an RS model on the alpha Camaro.

    Let the two beast at it and everyone benefits. Camaro and Mustang keep pushing the extremes.
