Default The Corvette Killer from FORD?

This is one badass ride and could be a huge competitor to the C8 in that FORD hasn't had a car in the vette price range. I think the potential market for a car like this with FORD buyers has the potential to be huge.

What say you?

If Ford were to make it that might be different, but an overpriced kit car isn't going to make a real impression on the marketplace.

This is one hell of a long ways from a "kit car".

Superformance’s Ford Shelby GR-1 Generates the Most Demand in Company History


The plan is a supercharged V-8,” Stander told Robb Report. “It sadly won’t be a V-10. Ford doesn’t have a V-10 apart from one they utilize in trucks, and we want the GR-1 to be a production car with a production engine—all coming from Ford.” A supercharged Ford V-8? Sounds suspiciously like the engine from the new Mustang Shelby GT500. “You’re thinking on the right track,” Stander laughed. While Ford’s been tight-lipped about the actual power specs from that mill, everyone can agree that the horsepower will be well north of 700, so that’s a bright spot.
