Yes its a Mustang but a Mustang on steroids. The 4.6 liter engine that normally comes standard in the Mustang was stripped out and replaced with a DOHC 5.4 engine that didn't even fit under the bonnet so they had to make a new one. Side exit exhaust for serious cool factor and a rear independent suspension to bring the old fox body out of the stone age and into the 21st century. It will slam down the dragstrip with its 385 Naturally asperated horsepower or it will boogie down the road course with cars 3/4ths its size. This my friends is an Ice Cold car.

Performance like this is hard to argue with...and I'm not gonna try. That alone would make it ice cold, but the styling tweaks bring it down to cool...they're really far too "in your face" for me.

I voted Ice Cold.

My only problem with this car is the pricetag.

In recent years, cars have been coming with a shitload of standard features, which is great, but whatever happened to those good old days where you can option out a car the way you wanted it. Stripped out, with the biggest motor, and a manual transmission. This car comes as close to that as i can remember (except in this case, its more expensive.)

I dont think other people on DS will like it though.

Still, having no choice I voted Ice Cold

Ice Cold purely because of the performance.
How much did these go for/go for now (if Ford is still manufacturing them, I have no idea)?

it was 2000 model year only, Zlover, and they were very low-production. I think they cost, what, $50k+ when new?

not a fan of the styling or the pricetag. the performance is great, but not enough to get it out of uncool IMB.
