GTHO is GO

I have just been told by my dealer that the GTHO is now recognised as an upcoming project for FPV.

It should be on the road in approx 18 months.

Word has it, that it will use a beefed up version of the territory AWD system.

Considering the traction problems that exist with a modified GT or GT-P,
the AWD sounds like a good idea.

There was no confimation on the engine. However, the dealer beleives it would be supercharged.

Re: GTHO is GO

no AWD please... if I wanted AWD i'd get an EVO. I want revs and more of them... I want handling and more of it

AU II XR6 - October 2001 ~ December 2002 - RIP
BA XR6 - December 2002 ~ Soon to disappear if Ford CRC can't fix it....

45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
* etc...

Re: GTHO is GO

no disrespect to those i aim this at, but, of those of you who slag supercharging and AWD of a future GTHO, how many of you will actually buy one???

Ford actually know who the majority will be that fork out the $$$ to buy one, and if it is released with a supercharger and AWD, then it seems this is the config the customers want.

Re: GTHO is GO

Maybe they will, maybe they won't.....
If they do I will buy one.
If they want a deposit..... confirm it is true and then send me an invoice.

N.B. November last year I was talking to Ford engineers in the NT while they were testing "something" (not a GTHO).
At that time they denied that there were any concrete plans for a FPV turbo 6 but did state that it was GP & DF's policy to have a V8 at the top of the performance tree.
That was only 9 months ago......

I suspect there are many glorious things in the FPV skunkworks.

Yeh AWD wouldn't improve the handling would it?
I don't want any of that poofy fuel injection either.
A real mans GTHO gets 40l/100km

Re: GTHO is GO

Be realistic, there may be a few of you who'd spend $100k on it - but I would assume that 95% of buyers would not want a GTHO that got 40l/100kms :D

People would buy them as investments and you'd never ever see them on the road :D
