Falcon HO 6 and 8
just after some information
I am looking at buying an EL XR6 is about 3 yrs time and i was doing a bit of research through old copies of motor and wheels........and i made a very pleasent discovery.
In the back of Motor (DEC, 94) in the road test data section it lists two very interesting falcons:
Falcon H0 6 (4.0)- 177KW!
Falcon HO 8 (5.0)- wait for it...............................230KW!
These are very impressive numbers considering the time (1994) and makes them both more powerful than todays outputs. They were both automatics and the HO 8 did 0-100km/h in 6.66 sec and the 1/4 mile in 14.5 sec- not bad, especially considering the tranny!
Anyone know anything about them? Are they just a project car similar to the old Alan Jones specials? I think they must have been the ED Series because they were tested in the FEBRUARY 94 edition of MOTOR- ANYONE HAVE A COPY?
