Yep, how many 250kw rear wheel drive sports cars are on the market for this money. None.

Agree 100%, even in Europe, buyers still want the V8.

The 2.3 EB High performance package might be a nice car but it just doesn't resonate with our buyers.
It's actually intended to go up against the Camaro 3.6 V6 with the sporty track oriented 1LE package.

A better base model for our market would be the 2.7 EB V6 with 325 HP and 400 lb ft of torque.
i mean, if Ford really wanted to kick Camaro's butt, that's the way to do it without raising a sweat.

Could they do a pov pack and make it work here? Is it not the whole reason why we get RHD here in the first place at a decent price is because they load it up?

Seen heaps of both here in Canberra.

Why would you buy a GT86.

Win, win as far as I can see.
To be fair there is quite a difference in price and power. For the same money I'd prefer a Mustang definitely though.
