Question

I am pretty sure that they are not giving it away!! They said if you would like to show your interest please enquire to AEC on Ph: #### ####, i dont know what the number was!

I saw Drivetime yesterday and went to ask if any of the LS1 guys from WA have seen the show, and none of them beleived me on the figures!!

300+ kW at 5psi
over 500Nm from 2000rpm
and 1660kg
0-100 4.6 and 1/4 @ 12.5 or 12.6

Wish i had taped it! i only turned the telly on and the show happened to be on!

What? Only with 310kw???

But seriously, I would rather see the 5.4l in the engine bay of a GT. I reckon stick with naturally aspirated engines for GT.

Abbasolutely mate.. A real Ford GT doesn't need any "artificial" help getting it's power level. It's got balls from the box.. :D

Oh, to only have the GT back in the lineup...for good.How grand it will be! Come on AV baby yeah!
I agree, a naturally aspirated 5.4 with all the good gear will do the trick. And we'd definitely all want it to have that much power or more.
Russell.:D

I think the main thing the next GT has to do is live upto the legend. The EB GT and EL GT were good cars but they didn't have the mumbo to be called a GT.

I dunno about that Adam. The EL certainly did have the mumbo for it's day while there are many disputes about the EB's true figure.
I think the LS1 has raised the performance bar so much that we tend to think anything under 250 is a bit on the nose these days..
The biggest thumbs up I can think for the ELGT is brocky giving it the two thumbsup when he did a review of it in one of the mags after it came out...
