Strip Kings

Our fastest tuned Aussies

Motor (Australia) - - TUNER TUSSLE -

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.
