Hmm, I hope FPV will develop a local model in Australia!! What do you guys think of the Euro version?

I think it waters down the FPV range.

Just bring it out as the RS.

Power and torque similar to a AU 3 XR8, in a car that is a lighter 4wd and can corner.

Now thats impressive, if they brought them out over here for around 60-70 grand(perhaps a bit more) they will find quite a few buyers.

I reckon its hot as, ford aus are stupid not to import it. Considering how many rice burners are on the road these days it would make sence to give those guys a ford option, convert some of them over to ford and hell one never knows in the future they might even buy a Falcon and help save our slumping sale figures.

It says in the article that ford aus would prefer to build their own version when they start building them at Broadmedows in 2011. Dumb move if you ask me. Don't waste time make it happen now.
