    F6 is a shame it makes an awesome Pursuit vehicle for the cops and the twin cam barra is really a testament to what Ford Aus can achieve on on moderate budget. Having had a BA Turbo & regularly driving the parentals 2 FGs the driveline really is a sensational package.

    Hope I stumble across a bundle of cash before 2016 as I wouldn't mind grabbing one to keep long term, roll on acceleration never gets old played with a VE R8 Clubsport on the freeway last week and it was line ball from 80-1x0km/h. Ford's biggest flaw in their performance range since the BA days has been not putting big enough tyres on them. 235 & 245s just don't cut it with that much power and the BA was just down right sketchy in the wet on the stock setup. With 275s on the arse end you could boot it everywhere in the wet and it just gripped up or when it lost traction it was a very very progressive break away.
    If in doubt power out

    Yeah they will want heaps becuase they are aus delivered and 'only 100 ever made' lol.

    03/04 cobras will probably still be woth something as they are epic, but the rest can eat a dick.

    I suspect you might only see a Camaro here if there's no longer a Commodore V8 for it to steal sales from - or it would have to be priced far enough away from the Commodore so as not to be in the same market (say, a starting price of $60k).

    The way the GM Failboat dealt with Opel, who can predict what they'll try on?
    Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

    So you might have an 11-month window of opportunity in which to buy a Camaro?

    The visuals likely stem from Fords history with Aston Martin, ie their ownership cut. Perhaps shared/migrated designers?

    It's in key with the 'look' they are going for it seems, ie check out the new Mondeo (not hear year) for example. It seems more than ever manufactures are going for a 'look' across many of their models.

    Perhaps cause I think Astons are visual porn to me Ford visually is doing well vs many other mainstream makers. Overall really, they seem to be offering good options/performance in most of their model ranges.

    I am keenly watching this car, I have no interest in sedans so anything Holden is out for me and I was too much of a tight arse to shell out for one of the last e92 M3 coupes despite loving the model, thus a V8 coupe like the Mustang has my attention. 50-60k sounds perfect, however how the car looks in the metal will play a huge part in my decision on whether to purchase or not.

    So a current Mustang GT with a few options is in BMW 3 series price range in the USA.
    Not sure how they will land/sell/profit from selling one (5L GT) here for 50K on roads.

    Maybe the base spec 3.7L V6 model will get under 50K.

    Just for comparison. A Camaro SS in the UK (LHD - not converted to RHD) cost UKP35K from a Chevy dealer. That's Merc C250 Coupe price.

    Possibly ... but when I checked a few pages back, it was also a bit cheaper than the lowest-spec V6 Accord.
    The artificial price compression over there, along with their insanity, makes a mess of relative prices.

    GT stang is also about the same price as a base Chrysler 300, which retails for $43k here.

    BMWs aren't crazily overpriced like they are in Australia but I can't see the V8 being any less than 60K here really. actually as the list price for a GS is about that maybe there is some hope?

    Even at 60-70k I think the Mustang GT will sell well, my CV8-R Monaro was $66k in 2004...

    Just realised the Wheels which's been sitting-around for a few days has some info on these doohickeys.
    It's probably as accurate as you can get for something not released for over a year; ie. even if 100% accurate in terms of current intentions, all sorts of shit can change between now & then.

    Anyhoo, the info I though was interesting:
    (*) 230 killerwasp 2.3L turbo to be $45k
    (*) no V6 for Oz 'cos 4cyl faster & cheaper & more thrifty
    (*) V8 at $50k
    (*) Boss 302 version at $60k
    (*) top spec supercharged version at $85k
    (*) the 2.3 being developed initially for the upcoming Focus RS (which makes me think it may be a bit weak compared to the last RS - more weight & barely more power)

    So they're putting the turbo version a tad above the not-super-hot hot-hatches like Golf GTI; which sorta makes sense, it's RWD but being Ford US it won't feel as upmarket as a GTI.

    And a secret government document obtained by News Corp Australia a fortnight ago revealed that Holden will not have a V8 in its showrooms from 2018 onwards, as the next large sedan that replaces the Commodore will be front-wheel-drive.

    orly?


    whats the bet the mustang reveal is an lhd shell mockup

    Boss 302 will be epic. Pity I'll probably be able to keep one V8!

    Ah; I thought a Challenger was also a 4dr, making it indistinguishable from a 300.

    Well, looks "retro" at least.
    I (now) assume FWD, probably a Neon under the skin?

    But yeah, that was what I thought was a "Challenger".
