Thumbs up Fang in a AV falcon

Having thrashed the tits off a AV test car last week, i was very impressed with the car ford have produced so far. With a body more easy on the eye with more sharper edges and overall a better shape (not that AU shapes are that bad) it is very horny looking, although i would much rather see it without the bra's and stickers on. The donk is very reactive indeed, allowing split second acceleration with a drop of the foot. Apparently xr8's will get the quad cam 5.4 mustang-based donk at around 250kw and the xr6's a little bel;ow with a turbo wacked on which will make the chapel street croozers crack a woody. And the interior is very upmarket indeed packed with loads of unseen stuff in oz without looking posh, in fact similar to audi in a lot of ways. I'm gettin one!
(if i had the dosh anyway)
wait till september boys and the general boys will be blown away!

nah i dont work for ford but have some ripper mates who do!! what a bonus! This one was actually a fairmont ghia but still went like the clappers, even though it had done 11,000 km's in a month! glad to see that ford are continuing to produce fast, powerful, & well-handling cars which is the same for holden who produce cars populated by skaify's driving efforts that is only good for land speed records in a straight line!

a silly question but really important to me, can you see the front hood while in it or is it just like the AU?

I don't think it's a silly question ayman, a good one actually. From the spy pics it appears that the bonnet will be visable.
