TE50 and TS50

The TE50 and TS50 are based on the normal Family Falcon platform, but besides four wheels, not much else is the same to the normal award winning family sedan. The TE is aimed squarely at the TWR (HSV) Clubsport at $57,000 each for the manual and the TS is aimed at the Clubsport R8 costing just $66,000, around $8K down from the last model.

Both cars are powered by the good old trusty Windsor V8 that has served Ford for over 40 years. But there is one difference and that is that the engines have been stoked to 5.6 litres now producing 250kW's and 500Nm of torque. Along with breathing better than the 5.0 V8 it is also ,as you can see, a lot more powerful. It produces more than an XR8's torque at less than 2000rpm.

They both have the signature AU head lights but besides them, and the familiar grill, the front looks very different from the Forte. The body kit was inspired by the V8 Supercar with a large air dam and meaty side skirts which make the car look a lot more low down and meaty. Also at the back you will see more of its V8 Supercar origins where a huge rear wing, a delete option, dominated the rear end. Below that are two chrome exhaust pipes so you can hear the thumping V8 loud and clear.

Inside it looks more like the basic family Forte with the air con, CD and other goodies in the middle. If it weren't for the colour codes momo steering wheel with matching black with red or blue leather then you might forget you were in a fire breathing dragon ( until you touch the right pedal).

High performance Dunlop SP9000 245/40 Zr18 tyres come complete with two different style mags. 18 by 8-inch alloy wheels are fitted on the TS50 while the TE50 gets the multi-spoke Azzuro alloys that were optional on the old model.
Inside the wheels re 329mm Ventilated and grooved front discs with twin-piston calipers and 287 mm grooved discs at the rear and of course ABS is standard on all the models. But if you want the full package, you can get a huge Brembo brake with 355 mm cross-drilled and ventilated discs up front and 330 mm cross drilled and ventilated rear discs, all with four piston calipers.
