Felicity, Geoff, David (H.J)..... There is a confirmed rumour in Sydney that there will be a limited edition, or limited run 260kw XR8 due for release in Sep 2001. This info was given to me by a Ford Dealer.
Yes I have and we spent some time on this board talking about a suitable name and stuff but nothing any more substantial than that. It is a strong rumour and dealers are supposedly asking some owners if they might be interested!
I must have missed that thread.
without dobbing in the dealer and all, I have seen some figures on the weekend which I assume ARE GENUINE....although I've never had any drama's from these guy's.
But if you've heard and so have a few others, then it must be true.
hey pete not to late to cancel..he he
Definitely sounds like the stroker Doc. Just what's needed to inject some life into the brand, and inject fear into the LS1 guys.
mmm.."hey Guido, watch me blow this XR8 maaate. I dunno Con, this one goes really gooood maate.What's that badge on the back say?"
Things are on the up & up.
The only reason I have heard of anything is that I had approached my dealer sometime ago saying I could be interested in the next GT as I thought it might come out at the end of this year. All I have been told is the rumours everyone has heard. One of the sales guys was holidaying in Melbourne and must of heard it from someone.
