Shelbys are making a comeback here as well and it's
My current one is what we call here a "turbo-taxi". In original name, a Falcon XR6 Turbo. Mad Max stuff. It's basically a souped-up 6-in-line with dohc 24 valve head, spinnable to 7k (which makes it sound like a F1), and a thumping huge electronically controlled turbo on top. All I had to do was change the control box, it's dial-a-power with these. Brakes are HD by brembo, tyres are as low profile as they look, suspension is as hard as rocks with a reinforced body to avoid shakes, the gearbox is a silky smooth ZF 6 sequential with power and normal auto settings for traffic. All the usual whistles: dynamic stability control, 4-channel ABS airbags all around, etcetc.
This is what it looks like:

With the electronic brain I got for it now, it's touching below 5.5 on the 0-60 dash, with a warmed up engine and hot rear tyres. Not bad for a production car below 50 grand Australian (around 28 grand US).
For 15 grand more, we can have this:

Man, exotics territory for under 40 grand USA: I love this country! Received on Sat Feb 07 2009 - 04:04:27 CST
