THE POWER ENTHUSIAST: FORD FALCON XR6 TURBO (FG)
Depreciation can be a wonderful thing! While you would have to go old to get much with serious power for $20k, thanks to the soul crushing reality of depreciation (for the seller, that is), an FG Ford Falcon XR6 turbo can be yours for our target price.
This is a 270kW/533Nm hotrod of a car that can blow away V8s with ease. With not a lot more expenditure and help from an aftermarket wizard, it can also produce seriously stupid amounts of power. Just in case 270kW isn’t enough for you.
