Av discussions

From the new spy pics ive noticed a few things:

The rear looks like a bit of a cross between a Magna and a VX commodore(is it masking that made it that shape?). Not a bad thing, Magnas have nice angular rear lines (some say borrowed off the R34 skyline) and the commodore VX lights do look modern.. I think its a good job. It certainly doesn't look like a cockroach at all yet still feels falcony.. It certainly will look individual.

Front looks clean and a bit El/EF ish.. Yet modern. This is what the AU should have looked liked.

I read a recently zoom where they claim the DOHC falcon turbo (4psi) origionally put out 290Kw, and ford are going to have to use restrictings in the intake/exaust to limit power.

It think ford can be reasonably confident that the have a nice product on their hands. With rumored developments of:

4.0 DOHC engine
Turbo for six
4.6/5.4L OHC V8's
New sheetmetal
Two peice tailshaft (yay no conserns about vibrations)
lighter and cheaper IRS
All the good AU underpinnings

I think this could be all thats needed to make people switch from the tired old VT metal of the commodore to something more refreshing.

It's the masking tape that makes it look like that.

September is just to far away.
