Il tape une pointe à 174 km/h, 7 jours de fourrière pour le véhicule

A Saint-Benoît, sur l’île de la Réunion jeudi 30 juillet, un conducteur âgé de 22 ans a été contrôlé à 174 km/h sur la RN2 limitée à 110 km/h. En grand excès de vitesse, l’individu s’est vu suspendre son permis de conduire et sa voiture a été envoyée à la fourrière pour une durée de 7 jours.

Laissée à l’abandon pendant 30 ans, cette Falcon XA GT a trouvé un nouveau propriétaire

Patience est mère de toutes les vertus… Après 32 ans d’attente, la Falcon XA GT, avec le package RPO 83, a été vendue pour la somme de 309 000 dollars australiens, soit environ 180 000 €. Célèbre dans toute l’Australie sous le nom de “Chicken coupé”, personne ne pouvait acheter cette voiture d’exception à son premier propriétaire qui l’avait laissée à l’abandon dans le Queensland en Australie, quand il s’est aperçu du prix exorbitant de l’assurance. Le bolide de la firme américaine s’est ensuite retrouvé orphelin lorsqu’en décembre dernier, son propriétaire est décédé. C’est via une vente aux enchères, il y a quelques jours, sur le site que la “Chicken coupé” a enfin trouvé un nouvel acquéreur. De quoi lui envisager un meilleur avenir… Cette version de la Ford Falcon XA GT de 1973 est l’un des trois exemplaires dans le monde avec la nuance de couleur orange appelée “McRobertsons Old Gold” mais c’est aussi le seul avec une boîte manuelle à quatre vitesses. Mais au vu des photos disponibles sur l’annonce, le nouvel acquéreur aura du pain sur la planche pour redonner vie à cette Ford Falcon XA GT.
