First road test of XR8. NOT!

In Melbourne's AGE, Drive states they had a drive of a manual XR8. Well I quickly rush to the page and what do I find, they have taken a test drive of an XR8 from a Ford dearleship for 24 Km. Almost screwed up the liftout due to my being cheated of what I thought was a "proper" road test. Even I can jog to my nearest Ford dealer for a roadtest. And they had one in the first week of Jan.
