biggrin Surprise 6 speed for GT

Got my Wheels mag today...a must read for ford fans by the way. They had a good article on the GT worth a look.

One of the statements made in the article by Wheels was " With the Cobra R having been fittted with a six-speed Tremec box, there is every chance the GT will too."

Another great quote " It will blow HSV into the weeds in many ways and i don't just mean performance"- John Bowe

Well, youall said you wanted it to be different than the XR8 and a 6 speed with 290kw will do that nicely!!

Another quote from Wheels.."The GT takes 290kW at 5500rpm and 520Nm at 4250rpm into fight against the HSV GTS's 300kW at 6000rpm and 510Nm at 4800rpm. But as Ford understated many if it's BA engines by 10kW, we reckon the GT figure is likely to be closer to 300kW."

All throughout the article they were referring to the GT as 300kw. Personnally I'm not that fussed with the 290 figure as I love the 520Nm of Torque!!
