GT vs GT S: What's the Difference?

Yea what exactly is the difference between the 510 bhp GT S and the 462 bhp GT?

Boost.

Yea, BOOST, that's all... (in terms of motor)

Quote:
The turbo V8 might only be four litres, but it's immensely charismatic, and makes 510bhp in the S model. (The 'basic' GT, on sale six months later, is 462bhp, only because of lower boost.)

Sure, there's noticeable lag below about 3500rpm, and the revs run out at a disappointingly moderate (but par for a turbo) 7000rpm. In between those two, though, you've got an engine that answers the accelerator with quick and epic force.

Nice, seeing how turbo improves power all along the RPM range will also be a great look at what more of a difference it makes. But I doubt that will be available to us right now.

Do you know if they are releasing one model before the other or are they being released at the same time?
