About 2 or 3 weeks ago a guy who works near me arrived driving a Red AU2 XR8, nothing strange about that other than it seemed very familiar. What caught my eye was the 'Rebel' rear bumper, dual rear wing, Herrod Motorsport badge on the boot, Herrod XR decal on the side skirts, Vic number plates, Lowered, and loud V8 rumble.
But it doesnt have a '330+' badge or the 5 spoke 18in wheels (it had 7spoke 18in TS-50 Series 1 rims for a few days, now it has a different set of 18s)
This certainly seems like your ex-beast Minge, unless someones done a decent copy of it.
Next opportunity I get ill have a chat to him about it, but id be surpised if it wasnt the famous XR8
