    Nope.

    ADR's will be the sticking point.

    I was hoping for twin turbos if i am honest but this will do.

    Donít think this one will be global either but may be next time.

    There's ZERO chance of Ford allowing their product, especially a Hero product like GT500 to be sold through the aftermarket.....



    Actually LESS then Zero.

    Is that to do with noise Norm?
    I recall something to do with the Shelby Blower kit being nixed as a dealer fit because of that.....

    The GT500 blower is valley mounted upside down ala Miami so that should help NVH.

    The issue will be as it was with PP2, for eg wider wheels altering track width from the approved Base GT Mustang so needing full retest, ride height etc.

    Are they moving ahead with ECE harmonisation and if so,
    could that bring a change of circumstance or actually make things worse?

    Logic says that if a Miami complies then this version should too...
    Getting a RHD is another matter - maybe a petition of interested buyers with deposits?

    Question,
    If Ford has PP2 already as part of the Mustang package elsewhere in the world,
    could they simply add that to ADR registration as an upgrade that may or may
    come to Australia in future?

    I find it odd that Ford would have to repeat all crash test on the V8 Mustang
    to simply include those upgrades....could they simply apply as an upgrade
    that doesn't affect the primary crash protection data?

    Dunno. Its a good point worth exploring though.

    As it stands low run specials with altered track width, noise and ride height issues mean expense to comply.

    People fitting wider offset rims to Rangers for example as part of an aftermarket kit upgrade have found out their vehicles are actually unroadworthy.

    These are the issues cars like this face.

    True but the manufacturer does it and has those features approved via extensive field reliability testing
    well, that a whole different kettle of fish. PP2/GT500 thoroughly tested and approved by the manufacturer
    is way different to some punter lowering his car and putting different shocks tyres and suspension on it.

    The GT500 isn't from Shelby, it's all Ford with them licensing the names from Shelby.

    It has been earlier reported that the GT500 is to feature a dual clutch transmission derived from the Ford GT’s 7-speed DCT. Could it be that this "predator" 5.2 supercharge motor was headed to the Ford GT supercar and was decided to go with the V6TT leaving this for the GT500?
