The specific differences between the S and R in the press release were a serialized # for race series, fuel cell, strategic seam-welding and Ford Performance wheels.I'm curious as to the price and level of preparation difference of the S, R and GT4. I'm expecting the S to be somewhat like the the FP350S, maybe a little less prepped for around $120-125k. Like stock pedal box, tuned ABS, stock trans, basically a bolted (or watson style welded) cage, adjustable susp, big brakes, cooling and a race prepped interior. You guys agree? The FP350S used the same chassis prep as the GT4, maybe less prep would allow them to reduce the price even more...
But where does that put the GT4 and R then? $240k for the Gt4 and the R would be midway? How would it be different from the GT4? Both would use the same chassis/cage... Maybe sequential trans would differentiate the 2? Any ideas?
Thanks Mach E!......but you're still not a Mustang...Well, maybe I’ll be a bit more forgiving of the Mach-e going forward….
I seriously doubt they'd bolt right up. But I'm sure we're going to see some aftermarket options that look just like them become available for the S550.Given the S650 looks like a refresh - Are fenders / bumpers etc going to fit S550's? Because I'm liking those front fenders and the lines look like ours.
I have only had mine for literally 2 years and just learning what it can do. Almost 500 hp - check, big brakes - check, sticky wide tires and wheels- check , mega camber ( at least in the front), ford racing springs, after market shock/struts, less weight and more..... for probably less than 1/2 for a new s650. I have absolutely no reason to even think about something new. All those bells and whistles are cool and might make it "easier" in some ways to track but is not going to improve a driver's true capabilities... I would rather learn on an S197 and have to work hard refining my skills.Once you've had the car long enough, the pining for the newest thing fades away. It pops up every once in a while but doesn't last long. Ask me how I know.
