GT & GT-P What's the diff?

Looking at the FPV website, I can't see a whole lot of differance between the GT and the GT-P, they are pretty much spec'd the same except for the wheels and body kits. Am I missing something?

I noticed that too..

Interior specification details haven't been released yet - I'm assuming that's where the differences will be. Maybe even some mechanical changes as well..

I'm putting my bets on the following extras on GT-P versus GT:

- Brembo brakes
- climate control
- better suspension (i.e. Konis etc)
- better seating and interior appointments
- Prestige sound standard
- a little P badge next to the GT badge (he he nuff nuff)

GT-P can [also] take on GTS, i reckon! Pretty much the same power and features.

GTHO should take on the HRT427 =) heheh
why not? they're both limited production. Why not go all out?
To me (19) "GTHO" represents the KING of the pack - the best of the best!

what are your views on this? GTHO to take on HRT427 (and the rest of the world)??

Um by the way, GTS is also a limited production run with only 100 examples being made. No way in the world GTHO will go against HRT 427, that's a $200,000 race car. GTHO vs GTS all the way. And also, GTS would wipe the floor with the GT-P, more than 100kg's less weight and 10 more kW, the numbers say all, oh and by the way, does the GT-P have 19 inch wheels, 6 piston 362mm AP Racing brakes, plus all the other extra features, i don't think so . . . .

There you go on about power again. GTS wipe the floor of the GT-P? I think not! GTS is only marginally quicker than the T3 TE50. GT-P has more torque, GTS also weighs 1710kg (VTII - Don't know about VX) which is far from over 100kg more than the GT-P, which weighs in probably at about 1770kg.

Why would Ford bother taking on a car which is hardly one bit remotely holden anyway? it's not worth building a two seater POS for $220k when i can buy a porche.
