TD FG Falcon Introduction 11-05-2008 D
Next part of this episode of Test Drive, the introduction of the new FG Falcon. Ok, lotsa new stuff on the Falcon, but, in the real world, away from the sissy-bars and lesbian-encouraging female-only-gyms, what point is it all and will it be suitable in ten or more years? Yeah, that's right, most of the stuff in the cabin of the new Falcon will be obsolete and useless in a few years. Like the recent models that had stereos that could not easily be upgraded or altered (meaning the average second-hand car buyer had no use for the Falcon, which diminishes its value on the second-hand market and onlookers translate that to the new cars and so buy Commodores, Magnas, Camry's or foreign-built cars)these lovely new cars will have a much lower value in coming years than that of a Commodore of the same age. It's all well and good to have lots of beaut toys in the cab, but they've got to be able to be usable in ten to twenty years and upgradability should be paramount on the minds of the car's developers; alas it is not.
FG XR6 Turbo 0-200
FG XR6 turbo 0-200. Factory standard. Rolling on factory 19" rims, Toyo T1R. Brand new tyres, so grip is fantastic. Usually it would wheelspin to 60, stuffing up the gear change, but this time it was nice and smooth.
0-100: 4.9 seconds
0-200: 16.1 seconds
80-120: 2.5 seconds
Eased off a little after 200, was contemplating going to the 240 limiter but the private racetrack had a corner coming up so I canned that idea.
Can't wait to start modding it.

Ford G6E turbo - fast with class
Ford Falcon G6E factory 4L DOHC turbo six shows why these cars have become so popular over the last few years running some strong MPH through the deep end. Not bad for a 1750kg street car.
