2013 Ford Falcon GT Panther

Australia has become a unique market for American automaker Ford and it’s no more evident than in the growing popularity of the Falcon GT (the Mustang representative in the Land Down Under).

Now it appears that Ford has a surprise for its Australian customers because the fastest Ford Falcon GT ever created is set to debut at the upcoming Australian International Motor Show in October.

No technical details have been officially announced, but it’s expected that the car, which has been codenamed as "Panther," will carry a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine that produces an impressive 449 horsepower at 5,750 rpm and 420 lb/ft of torque at 2,200 rpm. This allows the car to hit 0-62 mph in just five seconds with a top speed of 155 mph.

The Falcon GT Panther is also looking at carrying a set of 19" wheels to go with tuning work done on the suspension to make it sportier, as well as stability control systems, and an upgraded transmission to improve its overall handling.

Expect more details of the Ford Falcon GT "Panther" when it makes its debut at the Australian International Motor Show in October 2012.

They must have some units of it on United States.

If Falcon made its success on Australia, why not having it on United States?

Falcon made its journey well in Australia. No wonder the next Falcon will launch also on that continent.

It’s raining on black finishing. I noticed that most of the upcoming and production cars, they are all covered in matte black. Is it because they want to achieve sporty appearance?

US or Australia, it doesn’t matter on what and which place. What matter is that this has a lower fuel economy than AMG Roadster.

YES, I agree. Bring it in the states so a lot of people can see this new model.

If this has the mostly positive response, there is no reason not to let this Panther make it run to production.

Bring it on India and that’s a better idea.

Why you guys demand for this Panther to bring on States? It usually has a greater potential in Australia.

Bring this car to the States! Do not change the name. Ford needs a good 4-door representative.
