I've heard the GTO has a CDx of .31 while the Mustang is around .34 or .35. Anybody know the real numbers? And, no, newgoat, your buddy's Mustang doesn't have a CDx of .00001.

Appreciate the help. Googled around and couldn't find squat -- particularly on the Mustang -- with that trick upside down cowcatcher front end. Slippery bit that design is...

My buddy's 05 Mustang is modded with teflon paint and deer whistles. The drag coefficient is actually .000000000000000001

With this cheap mod the GT beats the pants off..................................

Yup. Ford is keeping this number buried for some reason -- and the idiot car magazine writers are too dumb to ask for it. Heard Ford's GT, the six figure sports car, was way up around .4 -- so you can only imagine what the Mustang is.
You have to think that the more downforce a car has the higher the drag coefficient, the Ford gt is rated at .39 as I have seen, and I believe makes about 500 lbs of downforce, so .31 sounds a bit low but reasonable.
