That's awesome, it's gotta be a blast to drive.
I was just watching the American Top Gear (which still feels really awkward) and they were saying
how great the Evo is because it's a top of the line sports car that you can still pack your family into, but if I had to get a four door I'd much rather have one that comes with a supercharged Coyote under the hood. That thing sounds just plain mean.

Taurus SHO is a pretty badass 4 door as well IMO. Looks like a sleeper.

Only problem with the car in that link is that the weird grey inserts under the headlights are fugly, I don't get why they don't match either the stripe scheme or just make it the regular paint color on the car.

Nice sound. But the car is ugly inside and out...... Too bad

I would take a Taurus SHO instead; a traditional sedan but the performance to boot! But of course, its not a V8

Actually, I wounder why the Falcon never made it stateside. A V8 performance sedan to go along side the Mustang GT would be a good line-up.

That's true, very sleek looking car too. The new Taurus' looks with this drivetrain would be a great match

I agree. That is why I said I would take the SHO instead if I had to take a sedan (i.e. a coupe is out of the question for one reason or another).

Oh, an I agree too that a Coyote drivetrain in a SHO would be bad-***!
I can't wait for Ecoboost to make its way into the Coyote; that will be some sick power!

My problem is that although power is important and all, I also don't want my car to look the way that aussie car looks. I want it's engine in the Taurus. End of story

The SHO is All Wheel Drive. Not Front.......

And it actually looks good. Unlike that "thing" in the video!
