GTO or SVT

Ok, I know this is a Focus website, and I am a Focus lover, but I really like the new GTO. I know that the SVT is going away and my dealer has an 04 screaming yellow SX5 with euro package for sticker of 25ish. The GTO has a sticker of 31ish. What do you guys think? I don't have kids, so the 4 leather bucket seats in the GTO are not a factor. It runs the 1/4 in 13.8 bare stock.

Get the gto. If it were me though, I'd buy a 350z or an STi though.

I'd get the GTO, I was at the drifting shootout at laguna seca and the guy in the GTO tore it up, killed every other car there including the 350Z's and the Viper. You also can't really compare an svtf and a GTO. One is front wheel drive 4 cyl. and the other is a V-8 with rear wheel drive. The GTO would kill an svtf any day of the week, so I pick the GTO.

That's what I'm saying. I got my Euro SVT for about 17,500.

You can get the SVT for lots less than that. Get the svt and mod it with the money you save. Oh.. and the $ you save on gas will get you lots of mods too.

i would go with the svt, although the gto does look like a very nice vehicle. i just love the look and feel of the svt, especialy the interior.

but thats just my personal opinion. drive them both, and see what you want, and what you can afford.
