Barra Wins Award

Read this in the local paper "Progress Leader"
The Ford falcon's new control blade independent suspension system has won the silver Awards at the 2002 Society of Automotive Engineers Australia (SAE-A)
The judges praised the Ford suspension design for its approach to developing a package with improved performance safety and cost efficiency .The end user
should readily recognise the ride and handling refinement and improvement achieved from this package

Sorry Pete but I think this was posted befroe in another thread a few weeks ago. Still it's great though that the car isnt even released yet and it is winning awards.

So, who won gold then ?
I'd like to know which car-manufacturer provides their cars standard across the range with a better suspension-technology.

That's old news too. Opel won that award originally in 1983 with that design. And the Datsun 180B won it in 1972 with the same design.

Oh, how would I know! It's worth a dig anyway....
