2009 Toyota Lexus LFA
Lexus began taking orders for the LFA supercar on October 23, 2009. Buyers
will be selectively chosen by Lexus in the second quarter of 2010.
Production will begin in December 2010 as a 2011 model. Only 500 total LFA
models will be made worldwide, with only 20 produced each month. Each car
will be custom ordered to the customer's specifications, and will cost an
estimated US$375,000, depending on options and customization.
Production LFAs, lined up in Yokohama
Following the LFA's release at the Tokyo Motor Show, Lexus unveiled a
website with a 'LFA configurator' which allowed users to select exterior
and interior colors, brake caliper colors, seats, steering wheel leather,
and other interior designs. In total, there are over 30 billion possible
configurations. Each LFA will be hand-built by a dedicated production team
of engineers and specialists at Toyota's Motomatchi plant in Aichi, Japan.
In the North American market 150 LFAs will be initially sold through a two
year lease program much like the Ferrari F50. This is to prevent owners
from reselling the vehicle for a profit. Racing driver Scott Pruett was
hired to give test drives to interested buyers, demonstrating the vehicle's
capabilities at Auto Club Speedway. The Lexus division of Toyota Motor USA
will stop taking orders at the end of 2009, in which they will talk about a
purchase plan for the lessees. Lexus later changed their stance and allowed
outright purchase, but only on the condition that they sign an agreement
giving the dealer first right of refusal to buy back the LFA if the owner
wants to sell it within the first two years. The dealer will have the
option to buy back the used LFA for either fair market value or the
original sticker price, whichever is lower. In the European market buyers
order their LFA through a single Lexus dealer located in Park Lane, London
where it is purchased outright.
During LFA production, each vehicle will receive a plaque which is
individually numbered, indicating the unit's place in the production run.
Each LFA V10 engine will also bear the signature of the specialist who
With 20 units produced monthly, production of the entire LFA run will last
for 25 months, from December 2010 to December 2012.
1965 Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint Coupe
Purchased by the vendor at the Bonhams UK's Silverstone Classics auction in
July 2010, this fine example of the Bertone bodied 2600 Sprint is one of
only 597 factory built RHD Sprints recorded.
The expansive history file details restoration work by the renowned
Brookside Garage in the nineties, which was owned by former AROCA UK
Chairman John Dooley. At this point the chassis was stripped and re-painted
while the engine was also rebuilt. New brakes were also installed at this
time. Fast forward some ten years and the 2600 had only travelled a further
1000 miles before its owner decided to return it to its original
specification. The exterior was restored to its original Rosso Amaranto
finish and the interior was re-trimmed in black leather, with new
headlining and carpets. Around this time a set of Dellorto carbs replaced
the original Solex arrangement and electronic ignition was fitted whilst
new Michelin rubber encased genuine NOS hubcaps. Steering and suspension
components were also rebuilt where necessary. With receipts on file
exceeding $70,000 this 2600 Sprint has had the hard work done and is now
ready to enjoy. The receipt file includes copies of brochures and road
tests. The Alfa will be sold registered in Victoria until November 2011
with a Victorian Roadworthy Offered by the vendor after sale.
Allan Moffat's 1970 Super Ford Falcon XW GTHO
Moffat first entered the Australian Touring Car Championship (ATCC) in
1965, driving a Lotus Cortina. By 1969 he had become a regular competitor
and his bright red Coca-Cola-sponsored Ford Boss 302 Mustang, which was supplied brand-new
to Moffat from Ford's American 'in-house' race car fabrication and
engineering facility "Kar Kraft", was unmistakable at circuits around
Australia. With the help of Tom Hamilton, he would go on to win 101 touring
car races (from 151 starts) in this car between 1969 and 1972, yet his
dream of winning the ATCC in the Mustang eluded him.
Moffat in the works Ford Falcon GTHO Phase III at Surfers Paradise
International Raceway, February 1972
Although Moffat and a number of other drivers raced Mustangs for ATCC competition - the
five ATCC titles from 1965 to 1969 were all won by Mustang drivers - this car, modified
to CAMS Improved Production Touring Car regulations was ineligible for the
Bathurst 500 (later Bathurst 1000), which was restricted to standard
production cars prior to 1973. Moffat therefore made his debut in that race
in 1969 in a Ford works team entered Ford Falcon XW GTHO. He and co-driver
Alan Hamilton finished fourth.
The following two years would see Moffat come into his own as one of
Australia's most dominant race drivers, and the Falcon GTHO as an almost
unbeatable car. For 1970, Ford Australia had made significant improvements
to the Falcon XW GTHO Phase II over the previous year's model and Moffat,
racing without a co-driver, took the car to two crushing victories in both
the 1970 and 1971 Bathurst races. In 1971 he became the first driver to
lead the Bathurst 500 from start to finish while driving the famed Ford

Ford Falcon GT HO Phase 4 
Excerpt from History Of The Ford Falcon (posted on my 'grubcomedia' channel
in full), this segment shows a real life Ford Falcon GT HO Phase 4, one of
only 4 surviving examples (at least back in 1998).
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.
Ford Falcon GTHO Phase 4 test drive
The Falcon GTHO Phase 4 is one of the rarest muscle cars ever built by
Ford. Only 4 were ever made and 3 are beleived to still exist. 3 were
purpose built for production car racing and only one made it through the
production line before the program was cancelled due to the "muscle car
scare" in Australia.
It is to Australia, what the Mustang Boss 429 is to the USA - The
ultimate muscle car.
