AU2 XR8 220 is Fantastic!
Just hit 400km on the odometer and all I want to say is guys, the AU2 XR8 is a majorly fine automobile. You can read all about it in Wheels mag, however from where I sit, there are further avenues to look at.
As you may know my car is a little more than 5 litres now, and is essentially the same engine etc as we will be seeing in the T-Series update. To say this car is an awesome package is being nice to HSV just to keep them grinning (for now). The chassis, the torque, the flexibility, and the overall driving experience is enough for me to say if you want a 5.6 T-Series order now.
There is a waiting list for most XR8 220s, and I can tell you a 5.6 in the Falcon chassis is very definitely the best car I have owned (and I've had more than 20).
To all the people at Ford Australia, Tickford, and Herrod Motorsport, I salute you. This is the package that will make the Holden boys realise we are TRULY BACK. And the quality can't hurt either!
And about time..... :D
