+++Этого, собственно, вполне достаточно, все, что можно сказать об этой машине -- обычная Сиерра с дефорсированной американской карбюраторной восьмеркой. Остальные модификации, как можно заметить, не столько для перформанса, сколько для того, чтобы этой восьмеркой Сиерру не раздавило/не порвало :)

Кстати, FSA делал еще машину Granada Piranha с той же восьмеркой (аттн Фрозен :), делали такую и австралийцы (Falcon соотв. годов).
