GT350/R Weights released

Recommended Posts

Well, it's about as good as we could have expected from the platform. Based on this, I expect the stripped GT350R's performance numbers to be roughly equal to the outgoing Z/28, albeit at a lower MSRP.

Also, someone should point out to Ford's website guys that the GT350R's engine almost certainly WON'T be a V9 :D

IT WON't?!?!?!?!

 

But, in all seriousness.. I think it'l edge the Z28 in almost every performance category.. nothing that I would say "dominates" but power:weight is better, larger contact patches on equally sticky Cup tires. The brakes are a big question to be still.. do they offer carbon ceramics? I forget.. Even if they don't it is totally fine by me. I think those X,000 brake packages aren't worth the price for admission unless you're really going to dedicate the car for track use only. Otherwise it is just an expensive option that will never get to be put on display.

It's a different take on the same question: how do I make a track-star pony car? And hey, I'll give Ford credit for the reasonable (more or less) MSRP and flat-crank engine. Those are both cool things, and I suspect that the engine in particular will be a big reason why customers will buy this.
