Looks better all one colour



Better than the pic from Muscle Car mag, still not convinced about the Merc headlights though. Doesn't really matter anyhow as I haven't got a spare $100 - $140K to spend on a car.

The more I look at it the more I like it. And there's no arguing with those engine specs either I'll take one, black on black please!

I LOVE IT!!!!! Well done to the Hillier boys.

Now remember most cars that you see look better in the metal than they do in a picture so imagine just how awesome this thing will look at the Motorshow. Wish I could go and see it.

I think it will be the show stopper at the show for sure...

Here's some food for thought, imagine it painted up like Craig Lowndes V8 Supercar...

I love it too,absolute beast!I still think the AU XR is the best looking car ever,all it needed was a 6.4litre engine.25 a year is just about right.
Now come on boys,how do we get real photos of it?

i'm in love with it! it looks like a true supercar! i love the headlights as well - it does look unusual, but that's probably why i like it. MORE PICS! MORE PICS!!!

Smile Looks more like...

I think it looks more like a funny car, a high-octane quater mile machine. This car looks seriously fast. However, If I had the money I'd buy the 300KW+ Coupe that Hillier created first.

Also, in that article on Drive.com.au, about the coupe they quote geoff polites as saying that ford australia don't see a market for a 2 door coupe. Does this mean they won't make a GTHO (Monaro eating) two door?

Cheers, Jason.

most probably not, for one simple reason - ford doesn't have the money. if ford had as much money as holden, they'd probably do it just for the hell of it, but right now it doesn't make financial sense to cut back on two VITAL models (Barra and Raptor) and divert the funds into a project which is not as important.

Knowing the Hilliers, no matter what you think of the way it looks, one drive and you'd be hooked!!

Well done Troy, Clayton, Gavin and the rest of the Hillier Conversions staff.
