A few weeks ago we discussed rumours that Ford was planning a limited edition ‘Cobra GT Falcon’ to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of Allan Moffat and Colin Bond’s historic 1977 form-finish at Bathurst.
Sources inside Ford have today confirmed the rumours. From what we have been told, there will be 400 sedans and 100 utes. They will be powered by a 302kW BOSS V8 developing 540Nm. 0-100km/h times and any further enhancements over the standard GT is currently unknown.
Of course all 500 will only be available in white with blue stripes and cobra badges on the side (picture above is supposedly the Cobra).
More on this as it comes.
