Here’s my review. Also a video where I make a quick cameo (and a reference to the Ford GT...)

A non track pack car dealers are doing MSRP to $10k or more over sticker
A track pack car (golden ticket as Ford refers to it) dealers are getting a minimum of $20k over sticker.
Is there a confirmation on how many golden tickets to be produced?

The 4200# number is largely regarded as fake news, but we'll see. I think it will be hard to get the weight up that high. With the GT350 around 3700lbs, its hard to imagine adding 500 lbs. I believe I read the DCT didnt add any weight.

The 720 HP number was on that same "leaked" spec sheet as the 4200 lbs. When it was "leaked" last year, there were some lengthy articles about why the document was a fake.
I hope your right. Would rather not track a 4200 lbs car. I'm hoping the DCT is not heavier than the Tremec's on the GT350. This would be a nice mod for existing GT350 track cars when the DCT becomes available. The Holinger gearbox on the GT4 is more than $25,000.

(y)The event was pretty well done. I was amazed at how nimble the GT500 was, and how this car seems to defy physics. First thing we thought of was Doug and Dana when we saw the Iconic Silver.

This older GT500 VS Helcat. Just wait for the new 700HP.

What has the NFGT achieved stock in the 1/4 mile?

That Iconic silver looks fantastic.

I would have to wrap the blacked out bumper to match the body color.

Over 700 hp, track focused suspension, low splitters, smallish cabin / cargo, I bet close to $100k, sure a perfect daily beater.

They won't release how many (at least now) but a rough estimate will be around 20% of total build.

Over 700 HP is no big deal if it's 720 HP. As stated previously, the 2013/2014 GT500's had 662 HP. My 2013 cost me $65K out the door with sales tax and no ADM. Rumors floating that it's going to be porky, close to 4,000LBS. I sure hope not.

I wonder if it will be available directly from Ford here in Germany ...
No GT500'S to be sold from Ford dealers in Europe

DCTs are heavier than manuals.

Figure it will push around 4000+ lbs. The DCT will add hydraulic components to accomplish the shifting which will add weight. The SC will add weight. The intercooler(s) will add weight. To the degree that Ford has done their homework to allow the car to have at least a few laps on a road coarse, there will be additional cooling - radiators, brackets, and coolant. Rear seat delete option will help fractionally - allowing removal of the belts and retractors.

If you're looking at a car for more dedicated track duty, an NA GT350 would likely be a better choice.

I suspected that, probably too much hassle and cost to get the technical/legal certifications done.

I am curious to see how many they will make and how hard they will be to get here in the States.
