IF a new GTHO is made.. how much power would it have?

I'm guessing 350kw, that's a complete guesstimate though :)

Don't turn this thread into an argument about whether or not they will make another GTHO, but dicuss how much power it would have if they did decide to make one.

Thanks :)

Re: IF a new GTHO is made.. how much power would it have?

the factory would rate them up to 310-320kw max but would put out more.
FORD will be pretty conservative on the power figure as they do not want to start another power war. they would though, rate the torque as the real figure.

thats if they do build a GTHO which i reckon they will too

Re: IF a new GTHO is made.. how much power would it have?

I was reading an article about an AMG 55 (Mercedes) station wagon that has 350KW, I reckon 350 sounds like a good number.

Thats the thing about Ford and Holden p***ing themselves about horsepower figures and what the government thinks, when Mercedes and BMW are sticking the two fingered salute up at them and putting out whatever they feel like.
Can't see more then 310kw without the MP's saying they will go and buy Hyundai accents as government cars if the horsepower war dosen't stop.

Re: IF a new GTHO is made.. how much power would it have?

i heard it was to be powered by a nuclear reactor

Ultimatedly, whatever FPV do produce, in the vein of their current performance, it will be:
- Too little too late
- It will not live up to the badge
- It will not live up to peoples expectations
- It will cause mass whinage from people on these forums who after reading all the bullshit and speculation posted in threads like these, will actually expect FPV to get it right and/or expect it to have a billion kw, weigh 0.00013649g and go from 0-100 in a picosecond, covering the 1/4 sometime shortly after....

340kW, low pressure supercharged Boss 290 variant.

Alternatively, it could be a Kennebell equipped 6.8L V12.
