04 or 05, probably manual and almost certainly a rental.

GTHO Phase III[edit]
The Ford Falcon GTHO Phase III was built for homologation, it looked almost identical to the GT. The modified version the Falcon GT built in 1971 with a heavily upgraded engine, a 4 speed top-loader gearbox and Detroit locker 9" differential. It was also equipped with special brakes and handling package, plus a 36 imperial gallons (164 litres) fuel tank.

Winner of the 1971 Bathurst 500, driven by Allan Moffat, the Phase III has been described as "...simply one of the best cars in the world, a true GT that could take on Ferraris and Astons on their own terms..." by Sports Car World.[3]

The GTHO's 351 Cleveland engine output was understated as 300 bhp (224 kW) to satisfy insurers. It is generally accepted to produce in the region of 350-380 bhp (265 kW -283 kW). Initial cars were equipped with an electrical rev limiter which came into effect at 6,150 rpm. With the rev limiter disabled, the engine was reputed to pull in excess of 7,000 rpm, even in 4th gear. The Phase III GTHO was Australia's fastest four-door production car. In 1971 it won the Bathurst 500 motor race in the hands of Allan Moffat

Performance:

Top Speed: 227 km/h (141 mph) @ 6150rpm 0 - 60 mph - 6.5 seconds 0 – 100 km - 6.8 seconds Standing 1/4 mile (400m) - 14.4 seconds

Bathurst (6.172 km - 1938-1986) (6.213 km - 1987-present) Fastest Lap time: 2:36.5 by Allan Moffat (1972 Hardie-Ferodo 500 - Ford Falcon XY GTHO Phase III)

A few years back after a track day at Wakefield (ironically in my old 05 Gallardo) a couple of scribes from Motor magazine showed up with a genuine stock Phase III GT.

The magazine article was to show how the legend stood up to a modern Falcon - from memory they used a bog stock V6 econobox for the comparison. I can't remember the lap times but the GT was comprehensively beaten by 30 years of automotive progress.

Against a modern exotic a stock GT wouldn't stand a chance. A highly modified GT - obviously a different story but a detail clearly lacking from that article...

Lol

I'm not one of those people that think there ageing Italian sports car is the fastest thing out and could never be beaten by a rx2 or a mrt'd golf or singled r32 gtr or whatever... But I don't understand how the Lamborghini doesn't gain anything while the falcon is doing a gear change that's slower than a f1 pit stop??

lol Momentum. The GT was already accelerating so much faster than the Gallardo that it was still pulling away while he was effectively in neutral waiting to get the next gear and pull away again. Thats why the Gallardo didn't gain ground. If the GT was doing 140kph and the slow shift took it back to 135 and the Gallardo is doing 130 when he starts the shift and reaches 135 when the GT gets going in the next gear, the Gallardo would still lose ground during that time.

Hope that helps you understand.  :thumbsup:

If they were both doing the same speed when he missed the shift then the Gallardo would have gained ground.
While the Falcon is slowing down its still doing 136 while the accelerating Gallardo is doing 134..
