Tasmania from the 20th -- 25th February, we were lucky enough to be invited
out to take some photos of this group of awesome cars before they set sail

Brother's R8 Birthday Pickup
For my brothers 16th birthday I decided to give him a bit of a surprise.
One of my good friends lent me his V10 Audi R8 for the week equipped with
full Larini Exhaust system and I
decided to turn up to my brothers school, Maroochydore State High, and pick
him up in it.
Here's the video of the reactions.
Thanks to Sharp Imagery, JRH Media and Blakliquid for assisting with the
car detailing, pictures and video.

2600hp Ford Falcon??? The DIRTY BIRD
One badass bird! This 1968 Ford Falcon running on 275 Drag Radials lays
down around 2600hp through its 449ci Small Block Ford with a pair of 88mm
turbos, watch it tear down the track at
the North Star Dragaway x275 race.
600HP 6-Speed TURBO Ford Falcon!
SPOOLING, SHIFTING, BRAKE BoostING...
An unsuspecting 1960's Ford Falcon rolled into the parking lot in Missouri
during the Missouri FBody Meet, it wasn't until we saw under the hood that
we realized why there was a giant crowd around this car. A turbo V8 with a T56 6-Speed Manual, powered by a
351 Windsor and S475 turbo. This car is
badass to see rowing through the gears, spooling and pulling on people on
the top end! Not too bad for a big lead sled from the 60's!
Ford Falcon XR8 v Holden Commdore SS V Redline Track Review
http://www.caradvice.com.au/326189/?yt_desc - Read the article here.
In the great Australian V8 war, the Holden Commodore SS in recent years has
been consistently victorious. Not only has it defeated the Ford Falcon on
the motorsport battlefield, it has also wounded its arch enemy both on the
road and in the showroom.
The Blue Oval, however, is going back on the offensive with a new weapon:
the first Ford Falcon XR8 since 2010.
The Ford FG X Falcon XR8 and Holden Commodore SS V Redline cost the same
$54,690 in automatic form as we have them here, but the eight-cylinder
approach under the bonnet is different.
Ford has the on-paper advantage. The XR8 has seized the supercharged
5.0-litre V8 out of the GT that’s no longer on sale, giving it 335kW and
The Holden opts for capacity over forced induction, with a 6.0-litre V8
producing 260kW and 517Nm.
