BTW: This car is really awesome! I'd compare this to a ZL1 Camaro or even the new SRT Hellcat.

I kept requesting the admins to update the performance figures; the power and torque figures haven't been edited in four years, so I guess the original rating is true.

0-300 kph: 31.0 s; impressive or not, it's a ponycar with musclecar additude!

..Hello people where have you been? Its obvious that Power is measured from the front area of the car when the wind hits it, Having the wind resistance measure how much force is hitting the car in turn measuring how much power it makes, Who ever herd of measuirng power from a car not moving? Thas like saying Japanese food isnt delicious..

The power is not measured at the rear wheels, it's measured at the flywheel, horsepower is lost through the drivetrain, only the majority of it actually gets to the wheels.

The new 5.0 gt makes 367 rwhp,not 390hp!


User avatar

I don't see this thing hitting 136Mph, Not even in the 10s, 131Mph is THE highest I would guess, But only with the best results. Has the power and torque, But it also has the big weight and horrid gearing.

137 mp/h = F12's 1/4 mile trap speed achieved by Qt Magazine.


User avatar

saxy  5y ago

136mph would be quite high of a trap speed... higher than any F12 trap speed

mr Bonneville  5y ago

11.23 @ 136 MPH STOCK (no kidding!!)

It is known that the output of this car is overrated. With a terrible weight distribution and skinnier tires, it wouldn't be able to beat a ZL1 or a Z/28 at smaller tracks. Nordschleife, maybe, but definitely not the Top Gear Test Track or the Laguna Seca.

I wasn't sure If either the cars picked WERE one of the cars that actually did the lap, So I wasn't gonna bring uo there was a passenger in the car, I dunno, Maybe those cars could have been test cars, or they were getting shots of the car and track, don't know how accurate any of that is, thas why I said "Maybe"

Also I did recently just notice those differences, 9Good Eye) The front grille isn't of the 2014 Model, nor are the exhausts, SO why is there 2014 trim pieces on a 2012 Model?

Which further intrigues my curiosity, Either a modded 2012 Model was used in the lap, Or those cars shown WERENT the car that lapped in 7:39. I do think more evidence needs to be found, Very curious know, but also very skeptical.

The GT500 that ran the Ring time actually "May" not have been stock..

it also had the "advantage" of an extra passenger


User avatar

Hamcee  5y ago

why do they have the old gen rearlights?

instead of these

I dunno if either of these cars were there for testing or if one of them was the actual car, But it seems like, The interior may have something that isn't stock, dunno if its safety equipment or something else, Also on the red car theres Air Dams, Cant say about the tyres though, But those front ones look kinda suspect.

But I don't really know.


User avatar

BR2+  5y ago

There not no, You cant get them from the Ford parts bin.

Aftermarket, Not stock, I "Think" there prolly DRs, Dunno what the difference is in grip compared to the MPSS it has on stock. But its a fun fact to know it would get a similar time.


User avatar

Hamcee  5y ago

are those tires actually an option from ford or purchased additionally?



User avatar

Sergio Marchionne  5y ago

Because it was run on super tight slicks

Why was the manufacture Nordscheife laptime of 7:39 deleted?

The time is impressive, but not unexpected. GT500 should have been close to the ZL1's track performance.


User avatar

BR2+  5y ago

I understand.

But given the situation, You have to treat EVERYBODY you don't know here AS a "Potential" Troll, Atleast everybody that's not.. "Noticeable"

You know, The simple crap posted, BS claims, BS articles, Downplays, etc

Mea Culpa, I am not as sharp in spotting trolls as either of you. This is the only site that I regularly participate in (there are a few others that I mostly lurk on without posting much). Of course there are many in my age bracket that aren't even computer literate. LOL. :)
