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 assembled it. With 20 units produced monthly, production of the entire LFA run will last for 25 months, from December 2010 to December 2012.





McLeod Ford Falcon XA GT 351
McLeod Ford Goss debuted at the Bathurst 500 in 1969 driving a McLeod Ford (with its distinctive yellow/black chequer windscreen strip) sponsored Ford Falcon GTHO, but Goss's co-driver Dennis Cribbin crashed the Falcon at Forrest Elbow. In 1970 John Goss posted the fastest lap during the Bathurst 500 in his XW Falcon GTHO Phase II. The following year Goss won two rounds of the Toby Lee Series at Oran Park against such opposition as Colin Bond and Fred Gibson. Goss won the 1972 South Pacific Touring Car Series and the 1972 Sandown 250 endurance race, both in Series Production Ford XY Falcon GTHO Phase III's. He also put his Falcon on the front row of the grid at the 1972 Hardie-Ferodo 500, qualifying second fastest behind the Works GTHO of expat-Canadian Allan Moffat. Engine failure after splashing around for 24 wet laps ended Goss' race. With the Series Production class being replaced by the new Group C Touring Car class in 1973, Goss was the first driver to develop and race the new Ford Falcon XA GT Hardtop. Unlike Series Production, the new Group C rules allowed considerable modifications. Goss obtained sponsorship from Shell and Max McLeod, a prominent Ford dealer in Rockdale, New South Wales -- known for his "Horn cars" -- as well as obtaining factory assistance from Ford Australia, who provided Goss with purpose-built XA racing chassis. Goss was actually the first to race the XA Hardtop in the 1973 ATCC, even before the Works team who used a modified Phase III GTHO and didn't make the switch to the Hardtop until the Endurance races later in the year. Goss and Kevin Bartlett teamed up for the 1973 Hardie-Ferodo 1000 at Bathurst and qualified on pole position with a time of 2:33.4 (it was to be Goss' only pole at Bathurst) ahead of the GTR-XU1 Holden Torana of Peter Brock and Doug Chivas. Goss started and built up a good lead which was kept until he was involved in a crash at The Cutting which damaged his front end. The Falcon suffered radiator damage which later caused its retirement on lap 110 of the now 163 lap race (prior to 1973 race distance was 500 miles and ran only 130 laps. The pair returned to Bathurst for the 1974 Hardie-Ferodo 1000 in the same car -- repainted from yellow to blue after losing Shell as their major sponsor -- and proved to have the reliability needed to last through a race marred by driving rain, finishing first. To celebrate the victory, Ford Australia released a limited edition XB Falcon Hardtop in 1975 called the John Goss Special. Actual production numbers of these cars were never released by Ford, but estimates range anywhere between 260 and 800 -- they are now considered collectible.





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.





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.

Falcon XY 9-second true street car
Arty's Ford XY runs into the 9s for the first time. The car was driven to and from the track and raced in full street trim (3690lb with driver) for consistent 9s and then driven to the pizza shop to celebrate! Dandy Engines powered naturally aspirated 440ci Windsor V8 running on 98-octane pump fuel through the mufflers and street radial tyres. Making 800hp the car has room to improve yet. http://dandyengines.com http://www.facebook.com/fullBoostcomau http://www.youtube.com/user/fullBoostcomau http://www.fullBoost.com.au
