A range of four and six cylinder sedans created by ford, running from the late 60's through to the mid 80's. Offered as only a 4 cylinder in the european market, Ford Australia imported numerous Cortina's and fitted them with a six cylinder engine from the local family sized car of the time the Falcon, whilst this endowed the cortina with prodigious straight line speed, the heavier six cylinder tended to make the car understeer. The increase in power and despite a heavier engine in the front, does make the six cylinder cortina an excellent car for burnouts. The easiset way to tell the difference between a 4 and 6 cylinder Cortina is the presence of a "bulge" on the bonnet in six cylinder equipped cars.
Wow, that guy in that cortina just went past us like we were standing still.
Person 1: wow that guy with his car firmly implanted into that wall must have forgot there was a corner there.
Person 2: no thats a six-cylinder cortina they tend to do that.
The hoon proceeded to do many burnouts in his pristine stock Cortina.
