2005 Ford Mustang GT Premium 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)
The new 05' Mustang is a blast to drive with a very responsive and snappy bottom end pull. Zero to 70 is under 5 sec. and continues to pull hard well past. With minor bolt on aftermarket parts, the '05 stang would be just as much and more so a street terror as was the fox body style stangs were of the late 80's and early 90's were. The interior and exterior looks of the car turn heads everywhere it goes. Look out Vette, with some more tuning and power squeezed out, you'll be having some heavy breathing on your neck. Ford is on the right track with the new Mustang, and only better can come from this model forward. With a fair price and nice power for a showroom stock car, the '05 Mustang is GREAT!
The low end torque of the newly redesigned 4.6L is awesome compared to the earlier models of its kind. The front end of the '05 is lovery aggressive looking and gives the car a nice retro look. The overall look of the car is one of a kind, but the front end I think is what will catch anyones attention.
A few things I would like to see for the new stang is, more aggressive sounding exhaust, little lower body to wheel stance so that I do not have to buy 20 inch rims to fill the distance, and of course the always appreciated extra ponies.
