Ford brought the original GR-1 concept to the 3rd Rally. The prototype Cobra too. Quite an event.

First, the act has to get passed. It's been held up because Congress has had, well, er, other activities keeping it from doing anything else. This would also imply that Ford will submit the GT500 engine as for compliance with the act. As of right now Ford does not have a compliant engine with the only offering currently coming from GM which.

Here's Superformance's statement

Congress? Or the NHTSA?


At least Superformance is less likely to pull that trailer trash move and drop GM power in a Ford. My guess is they will sell it as a roller due to Ford not wanting spend the money to submit their engines for compliance.

The SPF statement says "750+ HP Ford Drivetrain". So Ford has to submit for compliance. Ford has stated they would when the rules were approved but not before (because, as we've seen, it wouldn't have mattered).
