The brembos standard on GT-P makes up more than 1/2 of the difference, then add in all the other detail changes and you soon see where the difference lies.
If you optioned up the GT to GT-P spec you would pay a little bit more and still not have features like the dual zone climate control....

Brembo's for one. Nicer alloys. Nicer Grill treatment. Dual ZOne Climate. Sports's Wheel. Mats. Performance seats as opposed to sports seats(unsure how they differ). The brakes alone are worh over 5k

Incedentally over here the FPV vehicles get the top spec audio and sports wheel as standard.

To be exact (and I am looking at the auto here).

FPV-GT Auto $ 61,000
+ FPV S/wheel 950
+ Prestige Audio 600
+ Floor mats 200
+ Power Adj pedals 350
+ Side stripes 495
+ Brembo brakes 5,950

Grand Total $ 69,545

Plus we have to add the LCT onto those extras which is $8545 @ 17.5% for another $1495 in round figures.

Toital is therefore $71,040 compared to the GT-p auto at $69,850 for a difference against an optioned GT of $1,190.

In the case of the manuals the difference drops to $371 in favour of the optioned GT (as you drop the pwr adj pedals) but either way you don't get the better seats or the dual zone climate of the GT-p.

Cheers
Russ

I would definately get the GT-P over the GT. Looks better, nicer alloys and the such. I don't understand why Premium sound is an option though.
