That's a very real possibility...but I can't imagine FORD actually changing the suspension so much that it becomes IRS before the next generation Mustang.

Doesn't mean that it's worth $60,000 though...just because some idiots are stupid enough to piss money away.

I'm sure your car is a very cool, but I would disagree that you will just have to tweak the suspension "a bit" to keep up with the ZL1 in the handling department. If by a little bit you mean...

I agree with your points, except it's not going to be a $60K car. I don't understand why people think that, you don't price your product $10K (or a whopping 20%) higher that your direct competition,...

I think the main reason that Ford doesn't release the Nurburgring times that the Mustangs run is this:

Exactly! Way too many people on this forum are suddenly pricing the car into CTS-V, Grand Sport, etc. territory just because it ran a fast Ring time.

That is not going to make the price jump $15K...

The manual CTS-V has a top speed of 191 mph, with the auto only going 175 mph.

I would say that a 16% driveline loss is basically what most people see on a lot of GM's heavier late model sports cars.

580 HP - 16% friction loss = 487 rwHP
556 ft-lbs - 16% friction loss = 467...

Here are some vids from my runs "up the hill".

I ran a 3:55.57 --> not great, but not terrible for a 3800 lb luxury sedan with only 435 HP.

Not a Camaro owner, but I'm entered as well. I have a buddy from the same town that is bringing a 2012 GT-R. I don't think I'll be very competitive with him.
