Ok you are dissapointed that the GT is not all you expected it to be, i can live with that, but the rest of your post?!?
there has been so much hyp and speculation over the new ford gt series. and i for one dont like it as much as i would like to. what happened to the big massive spoiler??? wat happened to 20inch mags???? wat happened to the great monster lookinn bodykit???? and exspecially wats with the shit lookin power figuers??? the same figure for all 3 cars??? i expected 290 for ute. around 320 for gt and 370 supercharge for gtp?? i am very disapointed!!!
Hype and speculation is just that, hype and speculation, it is not fact, nor has it ever been. You want a massive spoiler? what would be the purpose of having a spoiler say, 1/2way up to the roofline of the vehicle? It really does not make a difference to performance, if you want it for looks wouldn't it be much better to have a spoiler that is integrated and fits in with the rest of the kit, just like the one on the GT at the motorshow does?
Great monster looking bodykit? well there are practicality considerations to take into account here, what is the point of having huge chunky plastic addons when they will only achieve the purpose of smashing themselves to bits over the roads? not much IMO.
Shit power figures? Please wake up, what is not to be impressed about with 290kw? at a time when 185kw was considered enough not that long ago, power outputs have come a long way. 370kw in a supercharged GT-P? I never heard that rumored for the GTP, maybe it will come on the GTHO down the track, but I cannot see any reason to be dissapointed with "only" 290kw.
i am very sorry to say i am leaveing my long loyalty to ford and moving somewere else. all use ford fans have taken SO much crap from holden and holden fans wen we were at our low. now there isnt goin to be much differance. i like the ba series very nice im sure that will win against holden but with special vehicles holden will win. all their designs are monster like and powerfull lookin. look at the ssx. less then 2 years of havin cars liek that ???? sorry GP but u have lost a very loyal ford fan. i suppose teh thousand posters, pictures and brochures are all going to be recycled.
If you are leaving the brand because the GT has dissapointed you because you believed too much of the speculation, how true a fan were you in the first place, the GT is an awesome car and more than worthy of the nameplate, and to leave the brand cos it doesn't have massive spoiler, 20 inch wheels or as it has "only" 290kw is rather weak.....
