There is a guy on Facebook in some of the 2020 GT500 groups that owns a custom wheel company. He posted pictures of his matching 500 and 350. Looks like he added a 2020 GT500 style hood to his GT350R.

Fuuu.

Very nice.

That's the perfect way to answer that "Either, or" question. BOTH.

I’ve been wanting to see the same color side by side. What an incredible combo of cars.

Wow that’s quite the pair!
The red accents on the 350 look great IMO.

Awesome!!! Beautiful cars. The second picture is very interesting -- didn't realize the 350 was that much lower than the 500.

Eric,
Is that the stock ride height on the 350R?

Not sure if his 350R is lowered or not, but those are his wheels you see. I am assuming the 350 is on 19” wheels. The 500 is on 20” wheels.

The large vent on the 350 looks good, $$$$$ and you can do anything. I wonder if hood pins are a future mod ??

There was more info on the cars last night in the Facebook post. Apparently the GT350R is Lightning Blue.

Although the vent looks like a GT500 style, it's actually from the FR350 race car. He was a brave man to cut into his hood to do that. For me, it looks good from 15+ feet away. Get up close and my discriminating eye wouldn't be so satisfied because of the distortion/wave it adds to the areas of the hood that were cut and then from having the vent attached. It would simply drive me bat shit crazy. Looks bad ass in photos, that's for sure.

There are at least two manufacturers making those hood vents for the 350. I've thought long and hard about them and may pull the trigger once I run headers to keep that excess heat out of the engine bay.

That looks great Kyle! Plus it’s functional!
