In the market for an 220 XR8?

From drive.com.au

Quote:
City Ford in Crown Street has slashed 220kW V8 XR8s by $8525. Pay $37,990 plus on-road costs for a manual, $39,990 auto. Some have no-cost extras, but all have dual air bags, anti-lock brakes, cruise control, air-conditioning and 17-inch alloy wheels.
Sounds like a good deal to me if ya don't wanna wait ...

Sounds like a good deal to me. I wonder what gear these $38k XR8's have ie bodykits etc.
