Thumbs up Pursuit Ute!!

Details on the FPV Pursuit ute.

290kw!!!!

Now that will DEFINITELY give the maloo even more to worry about!! Ford should be ashamed of themselves, that things gonna be just plain dangerous!! I LOVE IT!!

GT and GTP @ 330kw.

Confirmation on its way at the Sydeny Motor Show!!!

Gee it's sad but unless HSV buyers are completely morons, HSV will have a lot of their 100 GTS sedans still to sell in 12 months time!!

From a nameless Ford mate at Ford!! He hasn't steered me wrong so far, including details of the XR6T specs well before any official announcement.

Have to say, I DEFINITELY trust him as a source, so am very confident about the 290kw for the Pursuit Ute!!

Given that XR8 Ute add, I can only imagine just how mean the Pursuit will look!!!

Umm, I have heard different for GT and GT-P. Someone's being led astray!

Well, if it does put out anywhere near 330kw, where will that leave GTHO?
Scary to think about..

Seems like it was me that was led astray or should I say...got carried away!! Sorry for getting people excited!!

Pursuit Ute is 100% spot on......BUT

GT will also be 290kw (bit disappointing, to be honest, 300kw would have been nice)

Apparantly (different source this time) at 290kw the engine runs much more nicely and has a better mix of torque and power than when the engine was tuned for 300kw. So 290kw it is.

No word yet on the GT-P, there is another engine up FPV's sleeve that does have more power, but couldn't get confirmation of its kw, or when details will be officially released!!

Still, 290kw with Clubsport R8 pricing from all accounts. Very nice!! Very, very nice in fact!!

Hope some indication of pricing is revealed with the specs..

IMO it's important that FPV model prices are revealed as early as possible - potential HSV buyers may think twice about a Clubsport purchase if it's made public that you can get a GT in a couple of months time for a similar price ..

I think 290kw is fine.... Leaves the door wide open for the GTHO for example.

Its still going to take a large dump on anything HSV is sausage machining.
