    If it's real. I sure as hell hope it's not. Otherwise I'm going to start looking for something else. A recent big promotion could steer me towards a P car or maybe a Vette.

    I hope this document is a fake.

    Just heard it’s bogus.
    AWD plus FI doesnt add that much weight.
    The horsepower number doesn’t reflect the fact that the GT500 will be mechanically capable of supporting E85. Don’t know if a tune will be required or Ford will provide PP or track key.

    With the weight if this is all that the GT500 has they might as well leave it in the garage :yawn:

    oh well... focus on the positives.
    no ADM, for the most part, as demand will strangle the dealers.
    price of the base car should be on par with the zl1 and maybe even steep discounts, like the zl1

    If this sheet is correct? This is a huge flop from Ford.
    500lb increase?
    Only 190mph?
    725hp?
    I hope this spec sheet is wrong.

    It came from reddit? Reddit is pure cancer and just 4Chan with moderation, never believe anything like this from there.

    I totally agree. Reddit, where misinformation flows as the truth. I bet the original poster was a teenage boy. I give it about a 1% chance of being true. Hell, I don't post... but had to for this one. I have two contacts at Ford . Both have varying degrees of information about the program/car...but neither are in the program. I'm just going to say from everything heard weight reduction was a priority. I'm just a dude that nobody knows on the internet so take it with a grain of salt. I post a lot on that blueoval board though.

    If it happens to be that 1%, then unless its's priced like a GT350 it's DOA.

    That don't look like a document from Ford. I think someone had too much time on their hands and thought they would rile up the GT 500 fans. We need a poll created to find out how many believe the document is real.

    Totally a fake. The last GT500 did 199mph with less power and poorer aero. The 707hp Charger, which weighs 4,575lbs, will do 202mph. Even if the weight on this were true (it's not), it would still be more apt to go faster than a Charger.
