EL Falcon - Futura specs:

INDEX:

Summary:
Externally very similar to the GLi, the EL Futura was one of those cars where the benefits far exceeded those immediately obvious from the exterior.  If you need any more proof just check out the list of items below!  ABS and Cruise Control as standard immediately stand out, but it is the little things that you couldn't have on your GLi that make the difference.  Containing just enough luxury items to make life that little bit more pleasant, in many ways the EL Futura was a more comfortably equipped model than the AU version of the same.

The same goes for the styling as said for the GLi - externally there is very little to tell the two cars apart.  Yet with the V8 Supercars being based on this body style, very little is lost in the way of street cred.  Again, the V8 was available (refer GLi comments) - hardly worth having for the small power increase it brought - but well worth it if you plan to take the modified V8 route.

As a second hand vehicle, the EL Futura even further exemplifies the saying "so much car for so little money", bringing with it traditional Falcon qualities such as exceptional comfort levels, great highway cruisability and safety levels simply not possible in anything short of a car this size.  When it comes to achieving the necessary items to enjoying a relaxed motoring passage, the Futura is it.  It may not have the opulence of the more upmarket Falcons but it does not miss out by much of any value anyway.
