Our fastest tuned Aussies
THE Walkinshaw W557 is the fastest Aussie car MOTOR has ever tested to 100km/h, but the quarter-mile honours go to the Streetfighter FPV GTE tested at Hot Tuner 2012. While it trailed the W557 by a mere 0.02sec to 100km/h (3.83sec) it more than made up the difference over 400m with a stonking 11.54sec effort. Trap speeds sadly weren't published that year, but it would have had to be in the 205km/h region – serious speed. Another Streetfighter effort sits in third place behind the W557 on our all Aussie speed list, a supercharged VE GTS that clocked 3.91sec to 100km/h and an 11.82sec quarter mile, again at Hot Tuner
2012. Our secondfastest Falcon ever represents the turbo six brigade, Herrod's G6ET clocking 0-100km/h in 4.31sec and a
12.35sec quarter at 188.06km/h at Hot Tuner 2009.
