    The 2 door version is stunningly beautiful and will sell like hotcakes. I wish the 6 cyl. had an available turbo option though for performance that better matched it’s looks ! Nicest style that has caught my eye since the 1953 Studebaker Lowery coupes !

      Agree. Very handsome. 240 HP for a 3.5L is very under powered. Add turbo and get it up to 360-400 and now we’re talking! If Mercedes can do 360 with a 4-banger in the CLA45 and 400 HP with a 3.5 V-6 in the C and E 400 class, cerrtainly Ford can do as well or better.
