BA GTHO

Do you reckon Ford should build it? If so what Specs should it have and just how much should it toast the HSV's?

My oath!!They have to break new ground, If they start cracking 12's all day and can pull 300k's, Holden will have a kitten. (excuse the pun)

Personally I'd say no. I'd love to see a faster GT but I wouldn't use the HO name. The HO was only used on the Bathurst prepared XWs & XYs. It'd be a waste applying it to a non-Bathurst car.

So if they build it to have a crack at the Bathurst 24 hrs It would pass your pre-requisites?

I can understand your point, But what better way to sell a Fast GT than call it GT-HO?

Personally i think using another name would create a sales disaster. I doubt GTS would be as desirable if it were called something else, Clubsport-Z8 for example.
