Yeah, that's the Lexus out of the Tom Cruise movie "Minority Report".
So I don't know where he's getting his facts from.

Ford in South Africa produced a 6 cyl Sierra in the 80's (maybe 90's) and called it an XR6. We werent the first to get that name, however, I dont know of any other XR8.

Seem's the first XR6 was a MKV Cortina!!
Quote:

The Ford Cortina XR6 Mark V, which was only available in four door form, was powered by the 3.0 litre (183 cu. in.) It was launched in 1981, following the 3.0S Mark IV, and was powered by a 140 HP Essex V6 engine, coupled with a four speed gearbox. The rear suspension of this car was a unique five-link setup instead of the more fragile trailing-arm system of the European Cortina. The reason for this modification was to cope with South African road conditions.

Mid-June 1982 brought about the birth of the Cortina XR6 Interceptor. This was a real true blue Ford and has become a very sought after collectors item. This car included modified exhaust headers, camshaft, cylinder heads, high compression pistons, a 3.08 differential and, most important, three 42 Webers. This very special car also boasted 13" alloy rims. This combination became a legend on both race track and on the street. Only 250 of these were ever made.

Between 1981 and 1984 variations of the XR6 included the XR6 TF (Team Ford) which sported a white paint job with Ford blue striping and Interceptor rims.

A very limited edition was the Cortina X-Ocet. The car was similar to the Interceptor except for its being fueled by a 450 cfm Holley.
