Mustangs don't look like anything else on the road.

That's the straight skinny.

The shape of the combined upper and lower grille of the new GT500 is similar to the one on the '68 GT500KR.
Hardly a coincidence, they literally plucked it from the Godfather of muscle pony cars.

GTR is the one who stole it, if anything.

It's not angular, but I see a lot of this in the GT500 also!

I think it's really just form following function. The function of a large grill is to pass a lot of air for lots of cooling demands in hipo engines. Obviously.
