I know, I am very late to the party here but I think this is incredible. Certainly worth my wait to get a Mustang. Not sure if it will be the one I get but it has given me hope. Sadly, I have to get the Black on Orange scheme. Non negotiable. I love almost everything about the car. Even the quad exhaust, it's for business and pleasure!

While I wish Ford would go to a dished rear wheel in an offset stance. I can't always get what I want. Even still I know it will look incredible. I can't wait to see one in person and I am excited to see what the pricing is.

I have agreed with all of Overboost's points after reading. The only thing that doesn't bother me as much is the roof. The all alcantara steering wheel will get very used but it's super sexy. The new seats are killer in both regular and Recaro style. The intake, is great, new cams. It's just a killer combo and after watching the video, this iteration has to be faster than many cars out there. When the 2011 GT debuted the M3 had a lot of heat on it and really needed to step up it's game. Now, the M3's are going to need a new game to play.

Anyway, I am stoked to see that Ford has thrust upon the Mustang a vision of track style racing, not really focusing much on the straight line performance. This should be a nice piece to add to collectors now and many years from now. I'm not sure how I see the Cafe regulations going but 60 MPG is insanely steep, even in that time frame.

I would like to see a trickle down of parts to the GT.

For lovers of the Trans Am race models the Race Red/White will be a great combo and have great deva vu effect from the original car. The Race Red/Black will appease fans of the Boss available to consumers in 69.

I think the Ingot LS wears the red accents much better than the black version.

So do we know if the Boss engines are hand built like the SVT's or assembly line?

I read that are built along side the new 5.0 engine in the GT. I don't think they mentioned if they were hand built or not though.

I will wait and find a dealer that sells them at sticker and if that cannot be done I will wait and buy a used one with virtually no miles....
I have a written contract with the dealer for MSRP, I had to put down $500.00, plus in the contract, it's stated that I have 1st rights to 1st BOSS order when codes come in.

The segment that was being filmed starts at 47:00 of the clip on this page.

EDIT:
17:00-38:00 is a presentation of a special edition Challenger, then Mopar in general
47:00-50:00 has some discussion about muscle cars in general, including Mustangs.
50:45-57:00 covers the Explorer
1:00:00-1:11:15 President of SAAB talks about the 9-5
1:12:00-1:22:00 Chief engineer for the Corvette

More accurate info will be out in a few weeks.
What we do know as of now is-
The price will be between that of a GT and the GT500.
Spring of 2011 will see the 1st Boss' hit the showroom floors.
