It is in the The Age - Drive in Melbourne...

I'll type it out for ya....

"GTHO rumours persist"

Rumours persist that Ford Australia is developing a flagship falcon GTHO to compete with the image building HSV GTS. While ford's Falcon GT puts out a hefty 290KW of power, the Ho version, in line with the race heritage of one of Australia's most revered automotive nameplates, could give closer to 360KW, bringing it into line with hot-shot European family expresses. Its' not as if there aren't any engine choices, with the F150 Lightnin concept - based on the F150 Ute - boasting a supercharged version of the 5.4-litre V8 already used in the falcon.

The supercharged F150 concept is an absolute beast. This in the GTHO...can you say 'rear end action'?

Ok that didn't read too well but you guys know what I mean.
