    The 4 litre turbo straight six. Conservatively rated to 370hp. In reality they're making closer to 400hp.

    Oh look, the Silver Service has arrived!

    Just kidding, awesome car. I am hugely jealous. It's hard to argue with 270+kW, not to mention all that lovely torque. Any plans for it yet?

      Probably just do a flash tune, intercooler and cold air intake. The car also needs a LSD. G6ETs come with single spinners :facepalm:

        I thought the G6ET got the LSD. Oh well, it'll be easy enough to get one. That's the best thing about having a Falcon, everything's so goddamn cheap!

          I think it might need new tyres as well. they don't like 533nm of torque from 2000rpm

            Nice! I wish we got those here instead of the slow boring cars we get from Ford.

              Very nice! I like the fact that it looks like an uplevel Falcon with no clue as to what's under the bonnet. Does it have the same suspension as the XR6 or is it biased more towards a softer ride?
              Pudding can't fill the emptiness inside me! But it'll help.

                Looks like a Mondeo - well a bit.

                  The suspension is biased towards a softer ride but I don't think it has hindered the handling in any way. I think the softer suspension helps the car power out of a corner better than a XR6T

                    The Ford Australia designers used a mondeo and focus as a source of inspiration when desiging the FG falcons so it's no surprise that they look similar.

                      Well done. Much jealousy here.

                        That's one great looking car. Nice!

                        By the way, I just spent 5 minutes comparing that pic Cobol74 posted to a Mondeo, and concluded that the car looks like a carbon copy of Mondeo. Then I realised that that was a Mondeo in the picture. Doh!

                          That would make it difficult for people to tell which one they're supposed to buy when they're lined up next to each other at a dealership

                                    Love it! I'd gladly trade our Mondeos for those.

                                      Much better than the Falcons we got here, too!

                                      That is quite a sweet ride, stevan.

                                        Very nice car, you Australians are lucky when it comes to fun full-size sedans with plenty of power and available manual transmission.
