Hmm, that's a new artist's impression! Going on the descriptions we've all heard, that sounds quite close to the money. To me though it looks a little front-heavy, i think the front wheels are a bit out of proportion. However, I think if the scale of the front end was made smaller, it would look pretty good.

I also like this bit regarding performance..

I like it.....I like it ALOT!

I think this impression is very close. The description a mate of mine gave me after he saw a "body in white" (just the shell) version seems to fit the bill. I don't whether it will have the R5 style lights or the new Mondeo style lights though, I've heard the lights will be squarer, not so triangular, but either way, this are looking good..

I can't wait to get behind the wheel of one... :p

I do like the looks for the Ford line-up proposed by the article for 2002. As for the 2001-update, I'm not convinced the Lowndes thing is a good idea. He doesn't have a 'winning' history with Ford that should earn him a 260kW 'special edition' - I'm sure guys like Seto, Bowe etc are wondering where their special edition is. Granted, Lowndes is a highly visible personality with a lot of marketing cred. but I'm not sure he's earned his Ford Stripes just yet!

The picture is just a rework of the Ford Prodigy.

After reading the AV article, I'm now thinking of getting a AV XR8 or a AV T-Series instead of the T'Series that's coming out at the end of this year

I think you'll be happy with the update to T-SERIES this year as well
