AEC Falcon 300+
In the latest January 03 Wheels Mag we saw Strip Show writeup on a top speed shot out on 18 models.
As i've posted else where I have said that i can't help but be alittle disappointed at times with Fords performance on top speed comparisons. And before anyone flames me down i do realise in the real world top speed means jack so to speak but non the less it creates a good comparison and ca outline how stable the chassis and dynamics of the car is.
Anyways one of the models there was the AEC Falcon 300+ i'm suprised no one has talked about this car. Is this a car that you can buy ala the CSV product line or is it a once off.
I think 360Kw onboard, 660Nm a usable 6 speed gearbox whereby the 6th gear can achieves the cars top speed (265km/h) not 5th this things a weapon. And the looks, i think it's gotta be one of the most aggressive AU shapes around. Kinda reminds me of the GT Falcon Ford should of built.
I really think one of the magazines should do a single writeup article on this car and AEC's lineup.
