WOW, An official Falcon Coupe with 300+kw revealed at the Melbourne Motor Show.
This from Ford Australia's own website.
4.6 litre 32 valve DOHC V8 (supercharged version of the MUSTANG V8)
More than 300kW
0-100km/h in 4.6 secs
Standing – 400m in 12.6 secs
Tremic 6 speed manual transmission all synchro
18” alloy wheels with Pirelli P-Zero ZR18 Asimmetrico tyres
I'm not into the look of that Millard coupe at all..The Hillier conversion is much better IMO. I'd rather not see it sold through FTE dealers. Tickford can do a better job at designing a new kit for it I reckon, give millard the flick, keep AEC. I read an article stating that AEC will have an arrangement with FORD to continue developing for future products, they also said that they are negotiating with another Australian manufacturer.
I haven't seen it in the flesh so I'll leave judgement of that to those who have and the angles of the photos don't give me much room to actually say what it looks like, but I think that if they had involved tickford into the equation as well, there would be a much better bodykit and 100% certainly a much bettter suspension package in that coupe` even though no one has driven it to say that it handles badly, I am sure tickford are the mastars at suspension tuning and would ultimately do the better job.
I guess all will be revelealed as people voice their opinions through the motoring magazines of australia.
Got MOTOR today also, great story on the 300+, the more I see it, the more I like itm especially the pics MOTOR had. Considering this prototype was put together in just 6 weeks, I guess I wash a little harsh on it when I first saw it at the show, I think the production models will be better in the way the body kit is added on.
I think Motors pictures were awesome aswell. Interesting to see them say that they are considering calling it a GTHO. Considering Mustangs are nearly 90k with only 240kw and less equipment i cant see a problem with 100 of these selling. Super strong gearbox and diff aswell as better quility and a 345.1 ratio. Cant wait for the test either especially if its against the Monaro. There would have to be something wrong with Motor if they dont get it into the high 12s.
