Getting over there next thursday !


Let's see if this is the final EU version....still hate the black wheels with the PP and no fan of the white tail lights.


Don't think they made the right color choice as first impression for Europe...never saw an audi or beamer in yellow at a car show overhere...must be good reasons for..


Keep you posted.

good point, they shouldn't try to reinvent the wheel, instead they should have went with what ever is proven that people like.

Yellow will attract a certain kind of public, but not the ones buying Audi A5, Mercedes (CLA) and BMW (3/4) today. Tought this was their main target group...

This color is, my feeling, good to compete with Japanse brands, some french sport versions and Opel (GM local edition).

I plan an Ingot Silver one....

I don't think that the yellow looks good with the white taillights. Red or blue would have looked nicer IMO.

I think the paint choice was not so much to appeal to potential customers as of yet, it was to grab eyeballs. Its a visual shock shop, everything is competing for attention, while yellow is likely to flashy for the type of potential client as described, yellow at least has the benefit of pulling people in...

white tails are still disgusting....

Made already some remarks on Mustang6G, but also ask info about the sales brochure, maybe you can also get some info on price settings for Europe.

I'm curious if the rumors Europe will be getting the GT are true or not, but its not exactly imperative I will say...

Do we have interior volume numbers yet?
