You read that title right, buddy. That is a dirt cheap car. Especially for what you get. And just what is it you are getting exactly? A 650 HP, 600 lbs of torque premium everything for about $63,000. That is a bargain. A 650HP bargain. Try to compare that to any other vehicle with that much power and you will go mad trying to find one. BMW M3 is gonna run you $90K, Nissan GT-R another $90K, Mercedes for get about it. And even if you decide you want to throw out the $90K you still not gonna get that sort of power in any of these cars. The Porsche Turbo puts out 500HP and that costs upwards of $130, 000. Now before you go running out to buy one, let me remind you that you are still getting a bargain. Meaning I would recommend some after-market upgrades such as a roll-cage and crash helmet to make sure you don’t die going to the grocery store. I can’t figure out what Ford’s plan is with this car. Haven’t they realized yet that people want a quality car versus a ridiculous monster with a big engine that knows nothing else but going really fast in a straight line? Guess not. This world is full of turns Ford. It would be nice to take one or two without clamping up with fear because you don’t know if you will make it through or not.
