The White isn't actually my favourite colour... but it does have redeeming features.. like tooling down the RH lane of a freeway with headlights ablaze and every man and his dog getting out of your way...<grin>...
It's growing on me...

Yeah nice car, I've never been in a VCT XR6, but with 172kw on tap it must be pretty quick. Is the sound any different from the stock intech engine.

XR6 HP Vs XR6 VCT

My dad works at Ford so I have driven both XR6 HP and VCT in both manual and automatic form...

The VCT does go a little harder and sounds much better...and the manual is hepas better also
