All we need to do now is get those figures into a four door sedan with a GT badge on the bootlid and we're laughing!!
One of the problems I think with the EB & EL GT's was that Ford marketed them as a quick luxury car and not a stripped out street rod version of the old days.In saying that,they always were a tarted up Fairmont, but now Fairmont means a heap more weight to carry around.Adam W said:I have no doubt the EL GT was a very good car and it did very well in Motor's PCOTY award but it didn't have the performance of the earlier GT and the banana GTS-R.
I think the article you are talking about was a 5 or 6 way comp with the cars of old and the GT and the GTS-R included.Ford Man said:I dunno about that Adam. The EL certainly did have the mumbo for it's day while there are many disputes about the EB's true figure.
I think the LS1 has raised the performance bar so much that we tend to think anything under 250 is a bit on the nose these days..
The biggest thumbs up I can think for the ELGT is brocky giving it the two thumbsup when he did a review of it in one of the mags after it came out...
