You'd think so but actually in the case of the GT500, it isn't. It won't be sold in Europe (probably because it doesn't meet tough European emissions standards) so it'll only be sold in North America and in Arab states around the Persian Gulf where gas is cheap and owners don't get clobbered with high import duties and annual road tax. MrAwesome987, this is probably what Ford thinks the market wants rather than what it actually wants. As for it potentially being a good track car, weighing in at ~4400lb with driver and being nose heavy, it would be like trying to make an elephant sprint around a winding outdoor track. Sure you can do it, but getting all that lard to switch directions won't be pretty! As JJ427R correctly mentioned, managing engine and tranny heat is going to be a major challenge. I think if you really want a track car, get the GT350 (especially the R version) and reserve the GT500 as a street bruiser.
