300+ Coupe still a goer !!!!!!

I read in the Herald Sun on friday that AEC were still considering the 300+ Falcon coupe.

Aren't these the same crowd that put a 4.0 ltre Lexus motor in the MX-5 and called it the Bullet? I'm pretty sure they are. I think they should be appluaded for having a go. I know it's likely to be expensive. But its going to go off I reckon. They appear to building a real reputation as a serious tuner like AMG of the 80's.

Not many would be sold to the likes of us mere mortals but not many of us can buy a Ferrari either. That doesn't make it any less desirable. Perhaps more so. A 100 or so people paid over $90000 for the LS1 GTS. Then HSV did the usual pull the rug out from underneath them trick and build the same car for much less.

Any way I reckon the 300+ would sell at a similar rate to the original LS1 GTS. Be a damm site better car though.

Wonder if they'll still be sold through the Ford Dealership network?

Don't really care, so long as its on the market. It will sell. 2 or 4 door, it doesn't really matter.
What a beast, Looks good, feels good, is good!!!!!!!!

This thing HAS to get to the market. Even if is costs +$100k, IT WILL SELL!!.
Make it FORD, Make it Fast, AU's handle and AU's stop.

IT WILL SELL.
Dont dream it, JUST DO IT>!!!!!!!! Whether or not this thing has Geoffs blessing, it has to be available. Come on Hillier.

Thumbs up 300+

Sorry,but i couldn't help myself. (bit of bragging)

Bit of info on AEC (advanced engine components)

West Aussie company,in ossie park.

Yes,the comment about the Bullet is correct.

In case some are familiar with Jay Upton's absolute insane nitro bike,he actually works for them and was part of the design/build of the 300+.

Tey also built the V10 mustang.

Their website is http://www.advancedengine.com
Good informative website

Regards Jon

A Falcon coupe, bring it on i say.....

I somehow feel that if AEC are doing a Falcon Coupe it will be sold under there own company brand, aka CSV.

I don't think Hillier are involved with the AEC Coupe, as they've gone with Roman Autotek to produce a 430kW Coupe of their own (see other thread). Aren't Millard involved with AEC instead? The 300+ Coupe may end up being the Hillier/Autotek Coupe's poorer brother.

The H/A Coupe is rumoured to be about $130K. If you're spending six figures, you'd may as well go the few extra grand and grab the more powerful car. I imagine that not many coach builders can do a better coupe conversion than Hilliers either, having done several already.

Two rival Falcon coupes are coming. Damn hefty price tag though. I'd go for the Hillers one myself if I had to have 2 doors..
