    If you have $200,000, why on earth would you want a supercharged :mamoru: sports car, with a handful of recalls, and wonderful Ford quality?

    (yes they are going for that high now, check eBay)


    Just curious to know what would push you to get fords attempt at a supercar over a real italian exotic..........

    even at 200k, it's still 50k less than the entry level ferrari 360.

    good question. to me a supercharger on an exotic car is RIDICULOUS.........


    even if belt slip is not an issue, HEAT is a huge one, efficiency is another...having a belt driven power adder on a car that is supposed to be able to track well is crazy

    sc just has such a low class, drag race, mentality to me, i sure as hell wouldnt it on a "super car"
