Lightbulb Ford Metrostar 2.5 V6 Executive

Came across this car as mentioned in LS1.com, sounds like it's a local model in Taiwan. Must say it has very similar cues to the BA Falcon. It's not exactly a small car either as it measures 4800mm long.

Engine is the same as the Telstar with the 2.5L V6. Interior takes the same queues as the BA as well.

It should look familiar, it's the current model Euro Ford Mondeo with a few minor front end sheetmetal changes for the Taiwanese market.

Thumbs down

A good example of how to make a perfectly good looking car look damned ugly.

Sorry guys, can't see the resemblance.... Looks more like some sort of Mazda/Mitsubishi variant to me....
