Ford Expanding Svt Presence
Ford is adding one more model to its Special Vehicle Team (SVT) lineup — and says it may broaden its new performance vehicle initiative to Lincoln and Mercury as well. New to the SVT lineup for 2003 will be a 10th Anniversary edition SVT Mustang Cobra with a 390-hp supercharged V-8 and special anniversary paint and trim. Ford says it also will sell a 5.0-liter modular crate engine based on the 4.6-liter V-8 it stuffs in many of its mainstream trucks and cars. And lastly, the new director of the Ford Performance Group, of which SVT is a part, says the Lincoln LS might be the next vehicle it has in mind for a little massaging: “We’re not tipping our hand to the competition, but we’re obviously testing the market for entries in other markets,” said Michael R. Zevalkink, executive director of the Ford Performance Group.
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
