New Ford Vehicles to Steal the Limelight in Sydney

Ford's all-new Territory crossover vehicle will be on display for the first time in Sydney at the Sydney International Motor Show, starting October 16, 2003.

It will join one of Europe's most popular small cars, the Ford Fiesta, as the stars of Ford Australia's motor show stand.

Re: New Ford Vehicles to Steal the Limelight in Sydney

As long as its NOT in the same orange colour. The latest video and some snap shots show that it looks far more classy in some other colours.

I would have liked maybe a big teaser with say a Boss290 engine and supercharger and some quoted figures in ECE and DIN just to piss off the Holden rev heads. Oh and maybe a small contest on "Guess the future model to incorporate this beastly fire breather?"....gimme a G, gimme a T, gimme an H, gimme an O, goddammit... gimmme a GTHO!

Re: New Ford Vehicles to Steal the Limelight in Sydney

just slap a 373kw supercharged alloy 5.4 in a GT as quick as you can(maybe a roll cage) and then tell everyone that it was designed with production in mind and that it could easily be built..

but call it something bizzare like concept F. (i.e. dont throw around the HO nameplate just yet)

Great idea.

Also add Magnisum wheels, custom suspension, stripped race interior, Momo seats and steering wheel, MOTEC dash et al and call it a HRT Mona... no sorry, FPV Super Falcon.

Lead the public on that you will be building a limtied number of these cars.

Enter on in the Bathurst 24hr race. Under the assumption that this car WILL be built.

Take deposits on the car from loyal customers.

AND THEN DON'T BUILD THE CAR

That'll steal the limelight at the SMS.

Or has this already been done?
