Looks good but not a fan of that internal and front bar though.

I'm pretty certain that would be a 3.0litre Turbo version of the 3.2 compact Inline. Same donk as in the new Volvos. I was about to right R series but the 'R' is gone apparently.
Either way a very nice piece of kit. interior would be nicer in a rich red contrast though.

I'd guess these pics will be chopped very shortly and show up as "spy shots" of the new Falcon and/or FPV.

I like it, I'd change the seat colour etc but it looks good.

I think it looks great, needs a different front bar though, and maybe change the orange in the interior to something more subtle

Sorry to burst the bubble guys but that's the Casino Royale hand-built car that was built 12 months before international debut. Details on the Mondeo ST aren't on the Ford website yet, so my guess is it isn't revealed yet.

Check out the UK Mondeo launch video. Rather different! http://ford.co.uk/ns7/allnewmondeo/m..._intro/-/-/-/-

Even though that's a special car for Casino Royale i still think it's a great looking base to work from.

This car'd have to eat into the Falcon's sales... anyone worried about it in AU?

Think it dilutes their sedan range too much?

I guess Ford'll have a great range to choose from bringing it into AU and if it keeps people in a Ford rather than another brand in that car segment it's a good thing.

Nah, it might a little but nothing significant. People who buy falcons do because they offer what others dont.

It certanly will be a fine line up, and one of the best overall I can remember.

Fiesta - great small car
Focus - same as above
Modeo - easily the best so far, shame we didn't get the last one
Falcon - Orion is going to be awesome
Territory - Still doing well even though its basics haven't changed much, its due for an update soon though
