Wasn't the FP350S about 115k? Seems DH-S would be more just due to inflation. I would agree 120+ seems likely. Glad to be proven wrong though! Not many options for factory built track/race cars. Even if in the 120s, still much less than the 718 Clubsport Trackday version. It was 195k+ after shipping and import.

Yes but the FP350S had the same EXPENSIVE BIW chassis as the GT4... Just playing devil's advocate. Anyway I'd prob go for the R...

I thought both S and R will have the same FIA cage- thought I read that somewhere.

edit-Looking back, I assumed the cages would be the same from the part about featuring all S content. maybe that's not correct.


"Dark Horse R raises the track-focused intensity, featuring all Dark Horse S content, as well as special serialization that approves it for racing. It will come standard with strategic seam welding, a fuel cell for increased range, and Ford Performance Parts wheels."

Thats what made me think the chassis will not be the same...

I know it's FWD and not a ton of power, but there is the Civic SI FE1 for $55k.
Still going to handle better and take the abuse better than any modified street car

Or there's the Rush SR for $40k or the Elan NP01 for I think $80k

Agree, I considered a Radical at one point, some friends have them, but they seem to need a lot of fettling. And in a DE environment with mostly large, heavy street based cars I'd be a little nervous in one. The Porsche Clubsport is nearly ideal but there's something about a NA V8, MT race car that is appealing. Can't wait to see more details on the DH S and R.

That's fair; you always want what you don't have, right?
With the mustang, I want something smaller and much lighter weight. But if I had that, I'm sure I'd want a V8 again.

Exact, $30k more than the street car, so my theory is not 100% ridiculous!
I like where your head's at, Chuck. Though I don't think the DH-S will be $70-80k, that would be a screaming deal! Honestly, I don't see why it couldn't be.....take a $40-$50k mustang and add $30k of standard race car equipment and done for $70-$80k. Seems reasonable to me.

Well I meant the civic is $30k more than the street car, so a DHS at $95k (+ $45k over the street car) is, maybe, possibly possible?!

I've called around to 5+ dealers regarding S or R ordering. Agree with most here, dealers and Ford Tech Perf line all have no idea how to get an allocation or find a way on a list. Answer is usually, "we're the last to know anything..."

I just hope when they officially launch a part number they don't have a disclaimer saying "all have been sold"

My dealer said they will not take a deposit until they have pricing.

I used to own a Ford dealership (sold 2 years ago), and unfortunately, that's kinda true. Ford tried many times to show its dealerships new stuff and give valuable future info but you always have the stupid guys secretly taking a pictures or leak the info which end up plastered over the internet

Remember the bronco pictures at the vegas dealer convention, I was there and they specifically told everyone to hand out their cell phones and not to take pictures; guess what happened. SO now they treat dealerships pretty much like customers. It takes only one stupid person to ruin it for everyone.
