EF Falcon Futura specs:

Summary:
Sharing it's overall styling with the GLi, (see comments on it's shape under GLi specs) the Futura came with just enough extras to make life just that little bit more enjoyable.  From the cruise control to ABS brakes standard, life never was this easy!  Interior wise, new colours, front power windows and rear head rests were the major items while on the exterior body coloured mirrors and different wheel covers (ok - hub caps) supplemented the Futura badges to give it a slightly different look to the lower specified GLi.

Available in sedan and wagon, most of the Futura specs were carried over as the base for the XR6 & XR8's meaning you didn't miss out on much.  Like the GLi, the Futura's styling produced a particularly attractive car - one that responded equally magnificently to mods whether it be a new set of wheels or Tickford's impressively styled body kit.  Available also in a V8, the Futura presents plenty of scope for the modifier or family man alike with the six being equally responsive depending on your budget and taste.  For an in-detail look at what made the Futura and a complete specification listing read on:
