GT-P KW's

Does anyone know how many KW's the GT-P spec cars will have?

The new Ford brochure for GT & GT-P & Pursuit vehicles says they all use the same Boss 290 KW motor but for the GT-P car the brochure states "The GT-P packs the same potent V8 engine as the GT with further performance and luxury enhancements as standard".

Am I to understand this means > 290 KW's.

It is interesting to note that you can't get a number plate from NSW RTA with GTP 300 /310 /320 combinations.


The cop said "Do you know why I pulled you over". I said " Well, that all depends on how long you have been following me!"

GT-P will be 290kw but basically replaces a TS-50 with eg...better brakes..etc...= better performance....compared to a GT which will replace the TE-50.

Pretty sure it's 290kW for the GT-P, but we all have been wrong before.

Yeah, the HO on an XY was only supposed to mean Handling Options but it didn't have the same KW's as a standard GT.

Anyway, what does the P in GT-P stand for?

Is it P for Performance or P for Prodrive? I can't find an explanation for it in the brochures.

Presumably, the GT-P will cost more than a GT, and I'd be surprised if you don't get more go for your doe rather than more whoa.

And I'd still like to know who has snapped up those 300/310/320 number plates and why. Very interesting!

u wanna know why theyve got those plates already.
its because of the money. Think of it, a guy gets those 3 plates at bout 150 woteva they cost and the GTP comes out with either 300/310/320kw ppl will be payin top dollar to get that plate off him. So the guy has spent say 500 for the 3 plates all up. He will sell the single plate with the correct kw for over $7000


the guy has made a profit of over $6500 for just using his head just like that.



i hope that made sense

Thats the obvious reason - demand will determine the price.

But the point is, do they know something (inside info maybe) or are they just speculators who will make a profit just as you correctly point out.

I,m betting the GT-P will have more than 290KW

HO was initially 'Hi Output'.
But Ford changed it at the last moment to try and avoid the 'supercar scare'.

Didn't work :sad:


It'll always meen 'Hi Output' to me.
