Living in the UK, but want a little slice of Oz to remind you of home? How about a BA Falcon-based FPV GT-P?
We’ve come across one up for sale in the UK for the relatively low price of £5,400, which translates to around $9100 Australian. It’s only got 154,XXXkm on the clock, which strikes us as pretty standard for a 15-year-old car.
It’s about as Aussie as Aussie gets (short of something Barra or Holden 5.0 powered), and is actually listed as able to be shipped back home.
The seller says the 5.4-litre V8 has been left mostly untouched, though it does have an “induction kit, exhaust and chip so is in a slightly higher state of tune.”
This gives it a claimed 324kW to play with rather than its bone-stock but seriously impressive 290kW, as the Boss 290 engine would suggest.
Also on the list of overhauled components are the LSD, the six-pot Brembos on the front, and the clutch has been replaced with a performance clutch.
The seller says it’s been in the UK for only a short while, as it was imported by the original owner and “spent most of its life [in Australia].”
The ad’s on eBay UK here, so if you’re interested you’ve got five days from publishing.
Oh, and the plate comes with the car. Just imagine the ‘7’ is a ‘T’.
We found only one for sale from Queensland on TradeUniqueCars, but it’s sporting only 22,000km on the clock and is priced at $44.5K, so the UK-based car could also spark the interest of someone looking to pick up a marginally cheaper project.
