    With a price point over $400k Ford will not have trouble keeping the GT a rare commodity. Apparently Ford believes the GT should be priced in the Aventador range. At over 400,000 dollars it certainly moves the Ford GT upscale and well past the $150k starting point of the previous generation car. We all knew it would be more money than the previous generation car we just did not know it would be this much more. $250k rumors already made the GT sound very expensive but $400k+? Wow Ford. Ford Performance head Dave Pericak told Car and Driver that production will be in the hundreds, not thousands. It will be very rare and very expensive. It is somewhat of a shame it will not be accessible as the previous gen GT. Source

    Very nice results here from Unitronic and their performance software for the turbocharged and direct injected 2.0 TSI Gen 3 EA888 engine. They tested their software with a manual Volkswagen MKVII Golf GTI and an Audi 8V A3 2.0 equipped with the DSG dual clutch transmission. Stage I requires no supporting modifications and is designed for pump gas. Stage 1+ is designed for higher octane pump fuel. The dynographs below show the gains for the Stage I and Stage I+ but unfortunately Unitronic is providing crank dyno results: Getting up over 300 horsepower tune only is definitely pretty nice even if we do not have figures at the wheels. Stage 2 takes things further but requires a downpipe: Here is the complete breakdown with pricing: Ok dyno figures are one thing but what about the real world results? Unitronic’s manual MK7 GTI accomplished a 12.867 E.T. @ 112 mph in the ¼ mile, equipped with Unitronic Stage 2 Performance Software, Unitronic 3” Turbo-Back Exhaust System and Unitronic Carbon Fiber Intake System, using 17” Enkei RPF1 wheels and Hoosier 245/45/17 D.O.T. Drag Radials: The DSG A3 does better than the manual GTI running 4/10's quicker. If anyone still doubts the advantage of a DSG, this should settle it. Unitronic’s 8V Audi A3 2.0 TSI accomplished a 12.479 E.T. @ 112 mph in the ¼ mile, equipped with Unitronic Stage 2 Performance Software, Unitronic 3” Turbo-Back Exhaust System and Unitronic Carbon Fiber Intake System, using 19” BBS CH-R wheels and Michelin Pilot Super Sport 235/35/19 Street tires: Very nice documentation from Unitronic although we would have loved to see baseline 1/4 mile figures for context as well as wheel horsepower graphs. Regardless, a low 12 second GTI or A3 with basic bolt on modifications is easily achievable.

    Evotech raised some eyebrows with massive torque claims from their Stage 2 S63TU ECU flash tune. Tune only they claimed 777 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. That number is now over 800 lb-ft at the wheels (1090 newton meters) with additional tuning and bolt on modifications. The extent of the modifications to this F13 M6 is unknown. A Gruppe M carbon air intake system is clearly visible and one would assume for 803 lb-ft of torque at the wheels exhaust modifications are necessary. It certainly would be nice to get a list of the full specs. Regardless, the numbers show 673 horsepower at the wheels and 1090 newton meters of torque at the wheels. How Evotech is getting such absurdly high torque figures is anyone's guess.
