- Jpolicke Twenty-three grand for a basket case? And it has '66 wheel covers and gas cap so who knows what else isn't original?
- Scott Can't be a real 1965 Stang as all of those are nothing but a pile of rust that MIGHT be car shaped by now.
- 56m65711446 So, the engineers/designers that brought us the Pinto are still working at Ford!
- Spookiness I dig it. The colors are already available on the CX-50. The terracotta is like a nice saddle brown. The non-turbo Carbon Edition has a bluish gray and a burgundy leather interior. A nice break from the typical relentless black and 50 shade of gray palette. Early CX-30's had some dark navy blue (armest, console, and parts of the door) but I guess that was just too weird and radical so they switched to all-black.I'd be fine with cloth in colors, leather is over-rated, but I'll never have an all-black interior in a car ever again.
- Haze3 Interesting vehicle but, really, it's not hard to be great at anything if cost is not a serious constraint. This is A LOT of cost.Second, it's no great trick to use a large battery to get large range. If the internet is to be believed, the long-range R1S runs a 135KWh pack vs. the I6 at 77KWh. That's going to add up to a big difference in running mass and charging times.
The brand-C units are indeed substantially better than the brand-H ones, from the beam performance standpoint. Both are about the same from a build-and-materials perspective. It's a crying shame the ones once made by the other French brand starting with "M" were discontinued years ago; they were head, shoulders, knees and toes above any of the others.
