The ford GTs were getting about 190 stock, I've seen modified ones do 225+ in a standing mile, but they are heavily modified.

I see the numbers as generous and only a reflection of what the speedo will read. The current generation GT500's are speed limited at 155mph, they should be able to hit 170-175 without the governor based on gearing, since 6th is useless due to aero drag, but 5th should be able to be topped out at the redline.

I know that with the right combo, a gt500 could compete with the supercars, add a twinturbo and strong enough internals and you can be putting down 800+HP, but then you need something like an 80/20 all wheel drive system, and that's where the Ford GT could play where the mustang variants shouldn't go, I don't think anyone would complain about an exotic getting some all wheel drive... The mustang though, the outcry would be incredible.
i wouldn't say AWD drive is necessary, i would say that the wheel wells would need to be flared and some 385s would need to be thrown on.

There will always be ways to make other cars look similar. Especially if you are trying to make it aerodynamic and fast. It also does look a lot like the GT, just a shorter back end.

I don't think you need AWD for an 800HP car, just that if you want to play against the supercars (ferrai, lamborghini, etc) and have more than a straight line machine AWD with more power going to the back would help in the twisties as well as on acceleration. Wide tires as you stated are a necessity.

I think it should come from Lincoln, to push them back to the top of american(possibly world) luxury cars. I would assume it would be a supercar and a luxury car at the same time, like a Ferrari. It would also compete with the ZR1 and all the european exotics.
