Looks pretty good. I wish they made a sedan or coupe of that instead of truck though...

I'm pretty sure they do now actually. It's a sedan, and eventually everything forward of the windshield is identical. Can't remember what it's called though...but it's a pretty sweet car.

EDIT: I'm thinking of the Falcon XR8...but I guess it's not turbo like this is. There's also a Falcon XR6T which has a 4.0L turbo I6.

we do, its called the Baja, and it ugly and doesnt sell.

i dont think this would sell, turbo or not. Hell Ford cant even get the Focus down, they are going to handle a turbo motor?

The Ford XR6 Turbos sell like crazy in Australia.

If Ford Australia was ever to export these they shouldn't change it and make it look butt-ugly like they did to the Holden Monaro/Pontiac GTO.

whats good for the goose isnt good for the gander though. Cars the size of a mexican penis with tiny diesels sell like mad in Europe, but make up VERY small percent of cars sold here.

anyway, the whole front end looks very subaru. i think it has a good look, but people don't like baja-ish cars.

The sedan version looks very good. Why can't they sell cars like that in the US? Damn Ford.

How much power is 270kW and 550Nm?

yeah the sedan is much cooler. I actually like it, although I'd be so weary everytime that thing boosts....

Baja Turbo - 210hp, sits a little high sure, but still ugly as sin.

BTW, are those Typhoons and Tornados AWD or RWD?? I searched all over the net and not a single source say what kind of drivetrain it has :p

I'm gonna say RWD, because on FPV's site they mention a "unique 2-piece driveshaft"...I know that doesn't make it RWD automatically, but I'd say AWD isn't likely...they'd probably mention the AWD if it had AWD, too.

It's RWD, the only AWD Australian made performance car is the HSV Coupe4

So we get the ford 500 and the koala ausi bears get that?

Now I for the most part have refrained from any SHO comments lately, but that Typhoon is what they need to bring over and call a new SHO. That's just me personally though. Either way it's one damn sexy car.
