    * 260kW (350HP) of power @ 5250rpm and 500Nm of torque @ 4000rpm1
    * 6-speed manual transmission
    * Dynamic Stability Control incorporating Traction Control functionality

    There is also the 'UTE' version

    That thing would light em up lol.

    So I guess that Falcon XR8 is pretty much a Terminator in a diffrent shell! Before I leave this city you can take a XR8 all race-ready (done to the tits, search up V8 SUPERCARS for more info on google) for a rip around a track for like $350 I think, gonna giver a go if I can find out more info on it.

    Check out this site:
    http://www.airpowersystems.com.au/products_aus.html

    Has some of them putting out over 500hp.

    Here is the Holden, they call it "the billion dollar baby" it took them 10 years and a billion dollars to design it lol. 362hp, 6 speed, 19" wheels. Its the competitor of the Falcon XR8.

    I think these look sweet or mabye its just the lack of nice cars over here which makes it intern seem sweet:

    I've been steaming for years over the fact that the Aussies got 5.4 4V's and we didn't!
    The GTO is just a Holden rebadged...

    One of my customers has the V6 2.5 Focus ST, only his is silver with grey leather interiour.
    You should see the security he had to have on it just to keep the insurance down, and he's not a youngster.

    You need to buy a Falcon XR8 and bring it home.

    falcon looks pretty sweet but im not digging the four door. other than that the performance aspect of the car sounds pretty tempting.

    they need to bring the falcon over hear(or something similar) to fill in a 4 door v8 car and then put the 5.4 in the stang (atleast have the option of it)
