Why don't ford make an SV8 competitor?
After using the configurator on the Ford website, and optioning up an XT to have LSD, V8 Manual, Sports suspension, and rear spoiler it all comes out to $38,640. This is around the same price as an SV8 yes? I was told they costed less than 40 grand.
So anyway, You can basically make your own by optioning it up, but why can't Ford make a specific model with all these? Unless I buy new and option what I want, it will be pretty hard to find a second hand V8 Manual XT with LSD and sports suspension.
I will not be able to afford a new car for a while and would probably look at buying something like this in the future. But If Ford had a designated model, whcih was basically what I am talking about - an optioed up XT, it would make finding one alot less of an arduous task later on.
