Still a very plain car. It looks like a very typical GM car from the 90's.

There is something strange about australia even the fords over there look like GM cars from the 1990's. They all have decent performance specs but all look like bubbles on the outside. Heres the Ford Falcon XR8/XR6 style, 350+ horsepower, manual trans, IRS, and rear drive. Still looks like a 4 door GTO to me though. The XR8 has a 5.4 dohc naturally aspirated V8 while the XR6 has a turbo 6.

Heres a video of a Falcon XR6 running a quarter mile in 10.98 sec @ 124.74 mph.
