It doesn't even come with a Ford engine!
An LS9 is Chevrolet.

Lame... copy a mustang and put a GM engine in it, you'd think someone would have thought twice about that.

Those came out a couple years ago, they do really nice work.
But they really missed the mark,

It was like they deliberately tossed heritage to the wind, just to say they created an all new version of a classic.
IIRC, these are made over seas somewhere.

they also extended the wheelbase by 7 inches. too many things wrong with the car to actually like it imo.

$250k base price. Looks good, but meh on the GMC engine and as it's out of my price range, I'll go back to my regularly scheduled programming for the day now...
