    Love it or hate it, it's a head turner for sure. I would have added black stripes.

    yes, they mentioned in their sale thread they were taking it to BJ.

    good result relative to some other late model super/hypercars.

    I think it stopped at $900, but a no sale either way.

    to me the most interesting was the McLaren Senna sold for $860k (that was $1mm+ MSRP)

    If you want to go in a more exotic direction, you can spec the GT’s new Liquid Carbon series finish, which simply clear-coats the car’s composite structure for all to admire. We've seen dramatic tinted examples before; the GT's dark, presumably natural finish is more subtle, but very cool.

    Reminds me of years ago when American Airlines took all the paint off their aircraft to save hundreds of pounds in weight and went with polishing the aluminum exterior.

    Liquid Carbon finish seems to be more of a marketing and styling feature than a weight savings attempt.

    At $250,000 (on a $500,000) car, I'd call it a money grab. :eek: There's not anyone silly enough to get this, is there?
    Jim Glickenhaus says he'll do it on his SCG004 for $60k, why is Ford's price so outrageous?

    I think Ford now realizes they underpriced the car and this is some attempt at recapturing some lost revenue.

    Ford is not doing well and this is not going to help them financially. Their hail-mary is a mustang suv and a mustang. For me, they got the big lincoln right after 45 bad years and I believe they are sacking it. The best thing about them is the wild swings in their stock - good trading vehicle. ;-)
