Tough Taurus

Postby EFFalcon » June 11th, 2010, 8:40 am

Whilst not a 'Boosted Falcon'
It is one of our Turbocharged US Cousins, the Taurus SHO... and a nice one at that.

The Mobsteel Taurus SHO
With an estimated 458HP and a 12.4 1/4 Mile time, it certainly goes as good as it looks.

The big grill would look better if it had something else in or behind like a big fark off IC or a big Ford badge in the middle or incorporated into the mesh
