    FPV GT F vs HSV GTS Dyno test

    Ok Wheels Mag has done it's Dyno test and confirmed that FPV is underrating it's GTF's 351KW claim

    Although they came back later on and said it's more like 404KW in "overboost" mode or some such

    Facebook Ford fans are going ape**** over this but I can't figure out why

    HSV GTS = 330 Rear Wheel KW

    FPV GT F = 311 Rear wheel KW

    Both are roughly between 25 and 30% lower (driveline loss) than their claimed flywheel power but still the internet warriors battle it out


    Check it out

    http://www.wheelsmag.com.au/news/140...t-controversy/

    Ford Australia communications and public affairs director Wes Sherwood said Ford does not agree with the result, with internal tests showing the GT-F producing “pretty close” to 351kW at the rear wheels.

    “We prefer not to go on the record with this (dyno result),” Mr Sherwood said.


    Mr Pancione said his company has dyno-tested 30 HSV GTS models since the car’s launch last year, as well as “at least” 20 FPV GT models.

    “The results (of the Wheels test) were right on the money,” he said.

    “Good luck to them (Ford) if that’s what they think, but I can only deal with the facts and I’m confident the test we completed was correct.

    “I’d love to have Ford come back out and we’ll test the car right in front of them.”

    Yeah the sound is pretty sweet - the GT F got an extra little rev by the driver who just wanted to hear it again most likely

    Yep, I love the sound too. It's funny how marketing spend so much time pushing particular numbers on the internet, when new technology allows the ability to share vision and sound. Can't wait to hear that argument: which one sounds better?
