XRMORE

THERE is one teeny bit of info Ford Australia forgot to mention in announcing it was upping production of its XR8. It turns out waiting lists had formed for the last V8-powered Falcon, so Ford decided to bump the price up by $1000. Minor price rises also hit other hot Falcons, including the G6E Turbo and XR6 Turbo. With production doubled from 1200 to 2800, the final XR8 is shaping up to be one of the better performers in the slow-selling FGX range.
