I shot a crap-ton of pics and made a video. Most of the pics didn’t get used. I’m sharing a bunch here for people to hopefully see some things they haven’t seen on the new car before. I’ll say this too... there are a lot of subtle lines/curves that I only noticed after spending a few days detailing/polishing it. The fenders on this car stick out pretty far to accommodate the wide tires (305 front/315 rear).

If the pictures don’t load properly, hit “reload.” This is a pic-intensive thread. They don’t always load properly.

Ford went back to a folding mirror design like what was on the Terminators. This is handy when you are using a buffer on the door. Fixed mirrors prevent polishing the area under the mirrors. There is a backup camera and a button just above the license plate to open the trunk.

You can see the electric valve looking into the 5” muffler tips. The exhaust volume is selectable from toggle switches below the screen. The sat antenna is no longer black. On the 2020, it is painted body-color and moved to the roof.

You can get a sense of how far the fenders stick out on the 2020 in some of these shots. The cobra “puddle lamps” are on the tech package cars (as well as the upgraded stereo and blind spot warning). Also the bolsters on the Recaros are much more robust than previous years. The thigh bolsters stick up quite high which makes it more challenging to get in/out. The rib bolsters would not be comfortable if you are bulbous. I dig the Recaros in the 2020!

The car has an LCD screen for the instrument cluster. This allows you to select different displays. The displays also change when putting the car into different modes. Below is NORMAL/SPORT/TRACK. There are also 2 rows of shift lights that are on the windshield. I’ll try to capture them later. They are pretty cool.

Great pictures! So many things concerning the design points on your new car are duplicates of the GT350. Looks a lot like my interior, except no shifter! Also, I noticed there doesn't seem to be a radio antennae on your car and there is none one mine either! I guess they incorporated it into the windshield or the little bump on the roof! My fenders are real wide just like yours. It's an outstanding look when your are behind the car! Looks a little like a Porsche Carrera from the rear. Other than the different nose, it looks very much like the GT350 except for the shark gill side slot on the GT350. I'm just missing the hydraulic hood support (I bought aftermarket hydraulic JLT hood props) and the 760 HP engine!! Can't wait to see it this Spring!

She's purty! I see there's no spare tire again. Any plans on getting one? Looks like your front tires are 27.2" tall and the rear are 27.4" tall.

Mike, does the 350 have the wide front fenders too? On the 500, there is quite the extension:

The front fenders on the GT350 are different than the Mustang GT. They are wider. Not having seen a new GT500 to compare, I'm not sure. I would think the GT500's fenders may be wider, but not sure. We can compare when we meet at Shelbfest next May!

The Recaro’s are the same ones they’ve been using since 2015, the 500 added them in leather. Bolsters and everything else is the same same. Indeed very comfy and secure for a guy my size.

The GT350 has wider front fenders than the standard GT, but the GT500 are about 10MM wider still.



Be careful of those little openings, they're rock collectors. I run a set of ZL1 Addons wheel spats that cover that area and protects a portion of the back of the wheel-well on the front fenders from rock damage and chipping. You can just make out the thin outline of the rock protectors here.

Got a link to those Kyle? I sent an email to Jaeger Brothers... they don’t have anything listed for the 2020 GT500 and I’m not sure if the GT350 fender holes are the same on the GT500.
