That one looks horrible, it was done up by an aftermarket tuning company - d*** Johnson Racing to boost power up to 320kw (from 260kw). The car with those fancy plasticy body bits looks terrible and makes the car cost as much as a semi reasonable BMW or Mercedes. (BMW 325i goes for 90 000 AUD, 525i for 87 000 AUD; this tuned Flacon for 95 000 AUD)
That thing is sexy. I was looking at the threads, and it seems taht Ford might bring it up here depending on how the Goat does. I would love to see that...I'd haev my 06' Mustang and my 07' Falcon, right next to each other...that would be mad cool...
I don't really like the "hood scoop," but the rest of the car looks amazing. Why can't Ford bring cool stuff up here? The only state with really crappy emissions laws is Cali...screw the californians and let the Jersians get it!
Historically, rebadged imports have failed for American manufacturers in the US market. Starting back in the late 60's, Ford tried the Cortina, the Euro Capri, the Merkur, the Fiesta, the Aspire, the Aussie Capri, and probably some I've forgotten. Ford will be quite wary about trying again.
But, the Falcon does look pretty sweet, if you ignore that piece of bird poop on the hood.
