650hp with factory warranty! Jeezus! That is some serious mumbo for a factory engine and people thought the W427 was something special... This thing is a weapon

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh fck. That's intense. The GT-HO better pack some serious heat. But, how will it go with the Euro emmission bullshhit that stopped the 5.4L from being produced?

i heard a couple of years back they were going to do the 5.8, but didn't think it would be superchargered or put out those numbers. 320kph top speed? f**k haha

"Just looking at it gives me a chubby" :P
That's amazing!!! imagine the sound!!!

I was lucky enough to get driven home in my mate's brand new Mustang GT after my last exam today and the acceleration on that thing is phenominal!!! i mean 80-130 kph in seconds, up hill!! and thats just the standard 307 kw 5.0 (mind you i havn't been in anything as powerful but still..)
The 5.8 would be that scary its not funny!

Fingers crossed we get this donk in a falcon!!!

Based on Motor's estimate of what they'll think it will cost - that would be about a 50% deposit
