    4L straight 6 turbo @6psi ford

    Ok guys I am gonna be getting a new car probably mid 2003
    and I want some opinions on this car (I know its a ford but I think this car is gonna kick arse)

    so far I'm choosing between the Subaru Liberty B4 Twin turbo
    the Audi A6 and this car

    Link - click the yellow car to get to the info

    This is the new Falcon due out in 2003 the one I'm looking at is the 6cyl turbo. It is running a GT40 Ball bearing turbo standard at only 6psi putting out 240kw and 450Nm torque (apparently in testing this thing was well into the 300+kw with stock internals.
    Also has Variable valve timing the suspension from the S-type R jaguars and an LSD with traction control.

    I don't really wan't to get a WRX for the following reasons If I got one It'd have to be an STi and subaru cocked up our STi big time by de-tuning it also WRX's are nearly impossible to get insured in this country because of the number of kids who have written them off.

    Thanks for your opinions guys

    The front end looks like a Lightning. However, soooo much better than the lame offerings made here. Pussies.

    Good looking wagon = Outback

    Boxer Six to boot!

    Wagons are great for the sleeper guys, but not for me.

    Legacy B4 or the Forester Turbo for sure.

    That ford looks like they took the rear end off a monte carlo, slapped a 5.0's hood riser on it, and tried to copy BMW's headlight design. Uhhhh. Ugggg leee

    Those head lights on that new Ford Falcon look like a total rip-off of the new 3 series BMWs. And what chassis is that Falcon built on? The Taurus?

    Only pioneering companies like Suburu and BMW are daring enough to come up with new "controversial" designs (new 7 series BMW, late model Subaru Imprezas). Ford seems just to be a trend follower...

    ... 'Nuff said.

    na the falcon is it's own chassis also the yellow car is the V8
    I hate V8's I am looking at the turbo 6 which doesn't have the deformed nose. also I'm looking at the B4 Sedan not wagon
    as we don't get the wagons here in oz.
