There was talk of Ford revealing something special at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) and a lot of people thought it was going to be the 2015 Mustangs, but turns out it was this. At first I didn't like the way it looked, but it's staring to grow on me (would still change a thing or two). I want to say it's the modern day Eleanor, but not much info is available on it yet. Thoughts?

Only thing I don't like is the hood, rather see the classic eleanor hood or a shaker

The hood and quarter window (can't tell if that's a louver or not) are what I would want to change. I'd really like to see what's under the hood though.

Not a fan of the widebody look and that hood is hideous

Knowing Hollywood they probably swapped in the 4 cyl turbo rice engine out of the 67/68 Mustang from the F&F Tokyo Drift. :rolleyes:

I like it except for the hood. I agree that a shaker would look better, but if they just HAD to go with a ram air, they could have at least stuck with the old Mach 1 ram air. I do like the wide-body though, especially since it looks like the side scoops are functional.
