    Totally understand why you chose to go with the ZR1. Gorgeous car. I love the color, but like you would have preferred Shadow Gray Metallic. Enjoy it!

    The Gray would've done it for me on the car I bought. When I found the one I purchased and went over the specs everything was there that I wanted if I was ordering one then the color stopped me. I wasn't thinking of white at the time and was going to let it go but I went on Chevy's site and built the car to see it and after a few days of mulling it over I accepted the white color of my car.

    It makes all the CF parts pop and stand out, + I've had too many Gray cars and was longing for a change so white it is, might be a PITA to keep it nice looking however so we'll see.

    I'll be honest in that I didn't care for the Shadow Gray Metallic that much because it has too much of a blue/green look to it. I like the white/black accents any day.
    The Watkins Glen Grey Metallic OTOH is an awesome color but wasn't offered for 2019.

    It wasn't till I had my neck snapped in this one that I had any interest in white or a black roof. I called Nick and changed my order as soon as I could. My only wish would be to have all the fiber the ZR1 gets too. The GT500 could use a boatload of it.

    I don't see the criticism aimed at Ford as being unfair at all. They earned it. The only enjoyable part in the whole process of attempting to obtain a GT500 has been the gentleman that ordered mine, Nick. Without him I wouldn't be ordering one.

    Dayum, the C8 was there too. This could have been epic had they both been out there at the same time...

    19 Zr1 hits 170mph
    Gt500 157mph with VG Jr

    Not bad for a mustang.

    Z06 hits 150 so I'd say its punching above and below its weight (hehe)

    I saw the FP video on RA and thought it was well done. But, there was some footage I didn't care for so, I saved the good stuff and posted the updated clip on YT.

    If that is the case, I would expect a half second and several mph improvement in better air. The car should be capable of 10.8's or slightly better at 130-132mph which is excellent for a vehicle designed to be a jack of many trades.
