Checked out a Typhoon today
Went to pick up the Territory today and what should be sitting outside of the dealership but a Typhoon in Rapid. First impressions;
The alloys look terrible, l think Rapid made them look shite , probably better on silver or black. They look to be designed to really show off the brakes and managed to make the standard premiums look small, would look great with a set of Brembos behind though. They look OEM not aftermarket and do nothing for the car.
The bodykit wasnt bad but looks a little unbalanced without the bulge. Could have done better with the rear spoiler, looks like a quick and easy re-design that does nothing for the looks. Otherwise ok.
Interior was very nice, car had luxury pack with sports leather, not sure if thats standard but it looked trick. Gauges looked very purposeful perched on top of the console.
It seems as if Ford have been a litlle lazy with the development of this car, l cant imagine it took much to develop and bring to market.
Amazingly it was for sale, l thought these things would be impossible to find at present
