That being said, on what metric are they going by? If it's 1/4 mile times, that's stupid, considering what the Demon is. But if you add even one turn, the GT500 is faster. But it's just marketing departments throwing around stupid

With the specs released today, the GT500 does not kill Demons

What if he was talking about a course. In that case, it does in fact kill Demons.

Demon was built for one thing, tearing up the 1320.
Thus, if Jim meant road course, well, he is correct.

During Carlisle at Ford Nationals (2018), Jim tried to dance around a question as to what he means by ďVenom Kills DemonsĒ. Jim half-jokingly stated he was almost fired for starting that, and that venom can kill anything, including a Demon.



That said, the Demon is known for straight line, not corner carving so I seriously doubt he was referencing a road course.

Meh...the Aero/Track Pack looks atrocious with that rear wing and front winglets, plus wtf is up with the side skirt? its disproportionate. Not a fan of the wheel design either. Who the fuck cares about the headlights, they still look just as good as the newer 18/19

The base model looks better imo without the winglets and the GT350 track pack style spoiler

Im more interested in seeing someone put the blower on a GT350, should be a direct fit depending on hood clearance

As the Marketing head, he started the campaign

No need to attempt to minimize. Dodge even responded back to the campaign.

Point being, Ford is currently unable to deliver the performance level they were claiming too.

Was there a marketing campaign or was it just a silly comment he made?

Google is your friend, Dodge responded.

He is the head of marketing for the Ford Performance program (includes GT500)

As of now, little is know about the GT500 performance specs or capabilities as the Chief Engineer stated today they are still trying to get more power out of it before releasing the numbers.

What Ford did release today doesnít kill Demon, let alone put the car at the head of the pack.

Just watched the video where he back tracked. Lol man you are really stuck on a comment that you should have taken with a grain of salt.

The video also had a comment from Owens where he stated something about the gt500 in different configurations. Could there be a drag focused gt500 on the way as well???

I think the current one will be right there with the Demon if you do the same stuff to Gt500 that needs to be done to the Demon .Gutted Demon on slicks / skinnies and race gas is a 10.2-10.3 car on average . I think this new Gt500 with slicks/skinnies and gutted interior will be right there on 93 gas
