Re: 2017 GT500 Site Active!!!
A boosted V8 is more than likely, although no need for Voodoo, if you have boost.
But I am intrigued by the idea of a 650hp tuned GT motor that would be much lighter and have that raucus racing sound. As much as 130bs lighter even -- recalling how much weight was added to the previous GT500 over the Boss? I think a new GT500 can go in a slightly different direction than the competition (Hellcat ZL1) by starting with the lighter bits from the GT350R, and perhaps take it a step further yet, and undercut the R weight a bit, while including A/C, back seat niceties, etc. So the R weights 3662lbs. How about a 3600lbs GT500 with an updated chassis that can easily top 200mph, and steal the press. Why not, if it's your halo Mustang after all. The power to weight would be very impressive, and been there done that over and over and over with boosted V8's. On top of it all, cheating the gas guzzler tax(which adds a hefty increase to purchase cost) would be nice too. Yeah, no classic V8 sound is a slight drawback, but the draw would be it's uniqueness. Stand out from the low volume crowd.
Either way, can't wait.
