BA XR8 coupe from MMS pics!

What a beauty!! Much prefer the lines of this to the Hillier AU's, the C-pillar and window line are much cleaner, and don't have that nasty wedge angle thing happening.

So who's going to be the first to convert their GT-P???

Clicky clicky here for previous ride! I still miss her!

I still prefer the Monaro And as for those rims

It would be ok with a normal Falcon, but if anyone was to rape their GT like that, it would rate along side those people that put tow bars on their $90,000 cars

That's my opinion

Mmmmm Loverly!

Interestingly enough, It looks like one of the many coupe photoshops that proliferated this site around BA release...

:s6: :s6: :s6: :s6:

I can see that shape gaining classic muscle car status in a few years, and Oh! the Exclusivity!!

I'd do it in a heartbeat, but on the other hand, the 25,000 odd dollars needed for the conversion, would make for some rather nice performance mods. :s4:

Thumbs up

Nice shots Sparkles - shame that most of us are in the background!

Thank God most of us are in shadow except for that last pic!

This was THE FORD of the show in my opinion - much better than that overpriced gul-wing thing, yet it was wedged away in a corner with no fan-fair and no support.


Sooner or later Ford WILL get the message and build a hard-top again, it's just a matter of us making them realise they need one!


Cheers

i think the car looks great. the rims are perfect, what brand, size, etc? that car looks like a monster, very muscle car look, in black that thing would be frightening. I want one :)

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....
