I don't understand that second line but in regards too the GTHO at the moment it is all talk, speculation....although FPV have thought about bringing it back...but have said nothing more... you may be waiting a long time...or never.

I assume the 2nd line means something like, it's about time we get a new GTHO??well yeah GTHO is alive. Expect GT40 like engine with no less than a 370KW SC 5.4!

Ohh boy, just the thoughts of a Supercharged 5.4 V8 makes me salivate. Imagine an engine with similar power and torque to AMG's SL55 motor in a car weighing arleast 200kg less.

biggrin

Cobra, my saliva are everywhere on the keyboard since the launch of BA. Check out XR6T vs AMG C class. Almost identical power-torque-weight. So why not taking over few SL55s??:)

Don't hold your breath mate. Many moons before I think the king will return. Hopefully it wil be worth the wait I think it will. Im all for the GT40 motor in her that should make her the fastest 4 door in the world. As long as they don't speed limit it. The Phase IV maxed out at around 260kmph in stock form and nearly 280kmph in race trim if some of my old mags lying around are to be believed.
Somebodys hoping for near triple ton... drool.

Yeh good one RPO 83.
Given your excelent info in the past I was almost suckered in.
You had me for a split second.. Wishfull thinking I guess.

I must admit the 3:51PM was an interesting addition...

Has all the talk of the new GT and GTHO got all our heads spinning sooo fast that we need to add 2 more days to Feb next year to keep up!! :-))
