Ford Falcon XR8 review : supercharged V8 hero unleashed
http://www.caradvice.com.au/321745/?yt_desc - Read the article here.
The Ford Falcon XR8 is back after a four-year sabbatical. With the Ford
Performance Vehicles brand now discontinued, with the GT along with it, the
XR8 is now the great blue hope against the V8 Commodores.
If XR8s of the past decade have been on the underwhelming side, the latest
version has impressive on-paper credentials. Loaded with the 5.0-litre
supercharged V8 from the FPV GT under its bonnet, there’s 335kW of power
and 570Nm of torque.
The XR8 has also pinched the uprated suspension from the GT RSPEC, which
includes stiffer springs and dampers, thicker anti-roll bar at the rear,
and Brembo brakes up front.
That all bodes well for a great-handling V8 Falcon, though the XR8 already
sounds like a tremendous buy when you consider its $52,490 price tag
undercuts the GT RSPEC by nearly $25,000.
Time to find out, then, if what is the last ever Ford Falcon XR8 is also

a time". The car was a shell when he got it and over the years he has
turned it into a running, and driving classic car with a Ford 302 V8 and a
5-spd manual transmission out of a Mustang 5.0.
