new BARRA brouchure

ged'ay..

yesterday when i was shopping for a new car with my girlfriend at ford i got talking to the sales guy.. i asked him if he had any info on the BA XR's.. he went into his office and pulled out a new brouchure..

The new XR's are fricken spanking!
what i can remember from it is.....

new interior has XR embossed onto the seats in about 5 colours
Red; Yellow; Blue; Purple; light Blue all with wicked patterns

the leather seats has the XR embossed in Red

18inch wheels are an option on all XR models ( i think, maybe std on XR8 boss)

new stainless steel scuff plates/door sills with XR stamped in them (looks very attractive)

MOMO kit is available on the auto gear selector in Blue, Red and Grey
also the manual has a s/steel ball with the option of either Blue, Red or Grey gear boot!

the steering wheel also has the MOMO option.. looks unreal in Blue!

i can not wait to get my BA XR UTE!

looking forward to flogging the guts outa holden!

take it easy

Terry

Yes thats right.. a flat torque "curve" from 2000 to 5000 (computer limited).
Brochure sounds interesting! Looking forward to the launch!

Thnx for the info.

Hmmmm how many XR6T owners will attempt to remove the torque limiter? I wonder if its able to produce 500Nm just by doing so?

XR6t 450 over the range....XR8 is 400 over the range though peaks @ 500...does this mean we can expect the turbo to be faster off the mark?
