Got so excitied whilst walking back to work at lunch, I thought I was watching a new FPV GT come over the hill and towards/past me. Nice big bonnet buldge, Acid Rush paint, retro black stripes down the sides.
But alas, as it was driving past I could then see the big XR8 badge on the side skirts. Someone has already taken to striping up their XR8 to look like a GT. GRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think it was a mistake of Fords to make so little difference to the look of a GT from a XR8. Love the look of both, but damn hard to pick the difference. At least with the T series cars, they were noticably different that the XR and lower model stablemates.
If someone is buying a $60k to $80K GT, they want it to look different from the XR series.
Just my opinion

Oh no, does fitting the stripes to my Pursuit put me in the same lowly position???????
