    Limited edition 'Panther' ready for Sydney motor show.

    Ford Performance Vehicles is about to introduce the fastest Falcon GT of all time – although it will fall short of being the much-anticipated successor to the iconic GTHO.

    Codenamed “Panther”, the Falcon GT’s supercharged V8 will have the same power as before (335kW and 570Nm) but it will accelerate more quickly because of wider rear tyres and retuned suspension.

    Although Ford does not publish acceleration claims, Drive understands internal testing has shown the new model can reach 100km/h in less than five seconds.

    The upgraded Falcon GT is due to be unveiled within the next two months in the lead-up to October’s Sydney motor show.

  5. #$%#ing awesome.
     
  6. I want an Aussie Ford.
     
  7. Why isn't this here in America? We could really use this car here in the states! but no, we gotta bring back the Ford Tauris.

    And they wonder why the American car market blows
     
  8. i would rather have that than a mustang :p
     
  9.  
  10. That concept looked so tough. I wish they had released it looking exactly like that. Oh well, the R-Spec still sufficed, and most importantly it was quicker than the 7 litre behemoth!
     
  11. nice car! Me gonna love it.
