    Power number is pretty much what I was thinking. But that weight?! :facepalm:
    Top speed is subject too, as is the rear gear ratio. I'm skeptical at this point.

    720hp 650lb-ft :handsinair:

    Makes the 2013 GT500's 662hp seem like child's play. :crackup:

    4225? Umm...that puts it right in the firing line of the Hellcat Redeye in terms of power to weight. Also, how could it possibly gain 440lbs over a GT350? I'm skeptical on frankly, all of this.

    If that’s true, an insider here has been telling us this information for 6 months. I’m not surprised. In fact I have posts where I tallied parts and weights, and yes, 4100 was definitely possible. 4200 curb is believable.

    Hope that's the mule weight and not the actual production car.

    Makes the s550 GT not so porky anymore...

    And look at the weight distribution 56/44.

    This car continues to dissapoint.

    Something happened to Ford once they started really pushing the EcoBoost moniker. About the same time they 'dissolved' SVT. I miss the John Coletti type.

    CF driveshaft, about time it came back.

    The weight makes me think that this is not a version with CF wheels, RSD, etc, and more of a "base" unit.

    Agreed. Still I hope it’s not true.

    I’m feeling the hydraulics and fluids in the active aero might be the culprit.

    Same story as the ford GT.

    My two cents... On the first box, is that a typo..?

    [Diesel, Patrol, Turbo...]

    Should that be Petrol, or more typically, Fuel Type?

    Odd to see this "leaked" out... I'm skeptical too. :inspect:

    First I'm hearing about hydraulics. Is it going to raise and lower too?

    7-8-9-10 speed autos do weigh more than manual gearboxes. Bigger brakes, wheels, and tires, supercharger, intercoolers, bigger oil coolers, radiators, etc... All add up. More powereans more cooling which means more weight.

    Not suspension hydraulics. I should have specified. Aero only hydraulics, and that’s still speculative. But I can see some clues in the camo cars.

    Holy shit, weight to power ratio of 5.86..... that’s super heavy!

    I guess Farruko was wrong with his predicted 5.76 number, it’s even worse..

    Not buying into any type of active aero, would add more weight on top of this. Interesting though to see the top speed figure, either it's drag limited or the axle ratio is keeping it down.
