tim

what options did you get ? Track pak? painted stripes? etc

I know its posted here somewhere but am too lazy to find it
Rapid Red, black vinyl top and side stripes, Recaro seats, handling package, tech package, carbon fiber dash and red car cover.

I was unable to get the CFTP/painted stripes at MSRP. Dealers demand big markups for those options that I wasn’t willing to pay.

Tim

Said this before, but re read your write up on the new 2020 GT500 snd wholly sh** .... what a write up and what a car.

I subscribe to alot of you tube channels and I know those who ordered cars got invited to this event. Did all owners or better said; those who placed orders were they all invited ?

It was a terrific event and a terrific testimonial to Ford that these cars with stood the drama from all the drivers beaten on them.

Seriously,congratulationss on being a owner of the baddest car on the planet.

a 2020 GT500
The event in Vegas was actually 2 different events... there was a media event first. This was an invite-only event for media personnel that included magazine companies/website operators as well as “Youtubers” that focus on Mustang content. Those that attended the media event got to take the cars out on the streets to help them write their reviews.

The second event was the “enthusiast event.” This was also invite-only and consisted of a morning or afternoon session on one of two days. The enthusiast event had 3 parts: road course, guided tour and drag strip. I didn’t come across anyone else that had one of these cars ordered already when talking with others in my group. There were quite a few dealer reps as well as GT350 owners in attendance. I’m sure there were others with a 2020 GT500 on order, but I didn’t run into any. We were split into 3 groups and were quite busy with events... I didn’t get a chance to talk to many of the other participants.

It was cool as hell getting invited to this inaugural event and being one of the first to play with this new beast. I expected the car to be amazing, but it far exceeded my expectations in every category!

It really in a way had to be surreal. The car you ordered. The car you want.

And this event was ALL about it plus very touchee feeley.
Very happy for you Tim

Funny Don!

This car is a completely different animal. Sell the wife if you must! :p

On a side-note...I just got an uber ride from a guy that was retired. He said he started doing uber a month ago for something to do and to get out of the house (his wife was driving him nuts)! :LOL:

Interview with Jim Owens from Ford Performance. At 4:10, he talks about the “no manual transmission option” in the GT500. There is a discussion about convertibles later on:
