there was also a twin turbo xf falcon that supposedly pumped out 380 horses and 560 nm of torque..it went to the uk and got written off.
that was made by another mob and they didnt do much after that.

It was AWD too. 0-100 in 6.0 seconds from memory. Would have been an absolute weapon back in the 80's.

I remember reading an article about it.. they said something along the lines of how spooky it was the way you could dump the clutch at 5000rpm on gravel and the car just launches hard.
