I'll have a hard time deciding on how much I like, or don't like, the new GT500 design until I get to see it in a color other than red. Red sucks. I'll have to disagree that the styling of the new cobra is a complete mistake though. I think that the more aggressive front end sets the cobra apart from the GT and V6 models very well. And the have to functional. That means it actually works to produce downforce for the rear end at high speeds. They could have sacrificed utility to make it smaller and more attractive, but performance was key in their mindset here......and I have to agree with that choice. The only thing that really bugs me about this car is the ugly giant snake emblems everywhere. They just seem too cartoonish.....especially to have put on the front grill. The snakes need to be toned down, or eliminated all together.
