Hmm, that's a new artist's impression! Going on the descriptions we've all heard, that sounds quite close to the money. To me though it looks a little front-heavy, i think the front wheels are a bit out of proportion. However, I think if the scale of the front end was made smaller, it would look pretty good.

I also like this bit regarding performance..
It's one thing to catch up, but we want to slap them around the ears a little.

I like it.....I like it ALOT!:nuts: :evil:

I think this impression is very close. The description a mate of mine gave me after he saw a "body in white" (just the shell) version seems to fit the bill. I don't whether it will have the R5 style lights or the new Mondeo style lights though, I've heard the lights will be squarer, not so triangular, but either way, this are looking good..

I can't wait to get behind the wheel of one...:nuts: :p :cool:

I do like the looks for the Ford line-up proposed by the article for 2002. As for the 2001-update, I'm not convinced the Lowndes thing is a good idea. He doesn't have a 'winning' history with Ford that should earn him a 260kW 'special edition' - I'm sure guys like Seto, Bowe etc are wondering where their special edition is. Granted, Lowndes is a highly visible personality with a lot of marketing cred. but I'm not sure he's earned his Ford Stripes just yet!

After reading the AV article, I'm now thinking of getting a AV XR8 or a AV T-Series instead of the T'Series that's coming out at the end of this year :nuts:

I like it. Looks like the back will look good too. I hope the XRs and T Series have some tough wheel desighns and kits of course.

What does eveyone think of the power claims? I wonder if Ford will build a 300kw GT before the new 8??

Also the TU50 sounds good. Its a must as our utes are superior and selling better than Holdens. Gee it feels good to say that a Ford is kicking a Holdens butt!

Yep Ford is selling more utes than holden, cause holden don't have a 1 tonner.

I was amazing to see in my town that soon as the 1 tonner came out all the builders picked one up, they sprang up over night.

I dont mind the look as long as the wheel arches don't go too Torana A9X'ish with the flares n all. Also the doors on this pic don't look like AU items which is supposedly the ONLY sheetmetal left untouched.
Looks a bit Audi/VW bora like I think.

Disagree - sorry venom, but it is just the shot in the arm the Ford Marketing Department needs to create a car which will not only kick much needed butt, but it will also rub those SKAIFE clones (wankers) faces in it .......... I say yes, Ford should extract every dollar of their investment in Lowndes.......:cool: :WH:

Well I am happy for Fords sake that so many seem to like that photo, but I can say that I hate it. The side profile is worse than Au and those wheel arches:fmad: :fmad: :fmad: :fmad: :fmad: :fmad:

Great article though
