***Got new MOTOR mag today***

yep, received MOTOR today...and not a mention about the 220kw XR8, not even for next month:rolleyes: :eek:

The only Ford related news was in the hot bits section that says

Quote:
Ford may have scrapped plans to sell Lincolns outside the US, but over the next five years, there'll be eight new models. First up, in 2004, is a 4X4 with V8 power and rear-hinged "suicide" doors.
There was also a small article on a hotted up Falcon Ute (looks great ) that will be sold by Mick Webb's SVO operation. It's based on the Fairmont, runs on 18" Speedline wheels, Koni oil shock absorbers and Eibach springs. Tonneau cover cover can be either hard or soft. Engine upgrades are staggered, a 30kw increase, a 55kw increase and a 80 kw increase, they mention that thet will have a 5.6L Stroker available in a month also.

Could Ford be supplying the aftermarket fellas with their strokers :WH:

Must say Ford have dropped the ball slightly on this one. The cars are being delivered either this week or next and there is no write up at all. They have a couple of mule cars that could have been used (and I was told they did) to at least get the news in peoples face

If they are it makes you wonder why there was no write up in the mag..

Yeah, the usual "we have ignition" add thats at the begining of the mag has been updated. it now says, "THE LIGHTNING FAST FALCON XR8. NOW CHARGED WITH 220kW."
