Saw the Tornado this morning..

yep, in Port Melbourne, went to my mates healthclub, was parked outside the club... was blueprint. Must have been an early development model as it was actually called the Tornado, it had the F6 Typhoon badges on it.

Don't know what caught my attention more, the Torando Ute or the brand new 6 series Beema parked a few cars away...

Thats about right.
They actually go into production in Jan 2005 so Id be very surprized to see any on the street before Febuary.
I ordered mine on the 7-10-04 so Id be expecting to get one first up so ll keep you up to date with its release date.
Actualy the production wont even get into gear till about the 3rd week after Xmas.
Plan to see something on the street in Feb

Re: Saw the Tornado this morning..

no this was definitely the real deal.. i suspect the driver was in the gym working out.. if only i knew who he was, i would've asked to be taken for a spin.

had teh F6 badge in the grille, intercooler, and the new gauges up top of the centre cluster.
