BA GT-P vs AUIII TS50

Looks only. Theres been alot of debate lately over which looks better, especially in Pursuit 250's thread.

Well as much as I love the TS50, a done up AU will never looks as good as a done up BA. The GT at the All Ford day looked so good. Iv'e been left to eat my own words, the stripes look awesome! Havn't seen GT-P in the metal but With nicer wheels and front splitter it would look better still.

Colours that suit the GT-P are Acid rush and Blood Orange. TS50 would be venom and Blueprint.

I saw a GT-P in the metal on Fyans St in South Geelong, I think it was Venom red and it looked awesome. Pity it was peak hour traffic or I would have followed it for a better look. I think all the new BA FPVs look heaps better than the T3s (not that the T3 was a bad looking car), Its just that the basic shape of the BA is a better base to start from than the AU IMO.

Exactly my thoughts. That's why a done up AU will never look as good as a BA.

Fyans street ay? Coincidence that that's the road that Gorells is on? Pity I havn't seen any in the holding yards yet.

Can we throw a Taurus into that poll so that none of those 2 inspiring cars come last?

I've never liked the AU from the start, but I must say that the AUIII TS50 was the best looking out of all the AU's

I'd have to say, I might be the minority, but give me the T3 any day. Mind you, T3 is my dream car, and i WILL own one one day!

i used to be like that with the EL GT, till the T3 came around. but yeah, thats not to discredit the GT-P, because it's a damn sexy car, I'd still go the T3 over it, and i aint afraid to admit it:)

Yeah I know I'm always driving past to see what new XRs are in the showroom. It didn't have a number plate on the front so I don't think it was registered. It was waiting to turn right towards belmont near bob jane. I can't wait until they get one in at gorrell's as I'll be down there that day.

I think it would be interesting too. Bearing in mind to be fair you would be comparing Series I / II AU TS50against the T3. The T3 was such a quantum leap foward is styling as far as the Boy racer image went, which was where the car needed to be. The Series I and II were nice looking cars, just way to subtle for the market at which they competed.

Having said that, I think the latest update to the BA GT range has given it the boost it needed to lift it up from looking like a tarted up XR8.

Having said that, I voted for the BA GT-P. As good a job styling wise the T3 was to make the AU look tough, I think the BA body is a much better starting point.

P.S. I prefer the GT front splitter over the plain GT-P one.
