2017 Ford XY Falcon 'GTO-HO Phase III' 50c PNC
The GTHO Phase III is one of the undisputed kings of Australian muscle cars. When it emerged it was the most ferocious Falcon to date, with a fire-breathing 351ci V8, an irrepressible "shaker" poking through its bonnet and subtle yet effective body additions.
It was trumpeted as the fastest four-door sedan in the world, offering supercar-rivalling acceleration and incredible speed in what was essentially an affordable family season.
Though it wasn't intended to be the ultimate locally-developed and built muscle car, the Bathurst-winning XY (along with its Holden and Chrysler rivals) became a victim of its own success. Claims that they were too fast for the road led to the demise of more potent performance models. This ensured immediate classic status, yet it was the GTHO Phase III that entered the pantheon as the greatest-ever Australian high-performance sports sedan.
Its stamp on Australian motoring culture remains undisputed.
