Question Possible FPV Sighting

Hey, were any of you down at St Kilda Beach at around 1:30 this afternoon?

If you were you would have seen a car matching the following description:

Blueprint BA
Big tough looking bonnet bulge
Car bras front and rear
Low and menacing stance.

Could it have been an FPV or did I just see an XR8?

There were (predictably, first warm sunny Sunday in Melbourne for a while!) about a zillion people at St Kilda today so I think it was a carefully planned "teaser" by Ford rather than someone sneaking a prototype out for a cruise.

possibly was a GT???? how low, if it was really low, and had MASSIVE mags then possible it will be a GT. If the mags were like 18 inch jobbies, then XR8.

Losing my license wasn't the smartest thing i have ever done, but now i can save my ass off and buy a V8!!

Couldn't tell what size wheels he had from where I was. Probably 18's.

It was low but not stupid low, if you nkow what I mean. Sort of like the new M3, only tougher.

yep sounds like XR8 - i dont think they would take GT down beach road on a sunny day...unless it was a planned teaser (doubtful though id reckon)

but then if its an XR8 (been released) why would it have the bra's on it hmmmmmm

Jeez.... I must be blind. I was driving on Beach road past St Kilda beach around that time. Must have been oblivious.

Was it parked or moving?

What about a different body kit, like we have at the moment for the AUIII.

Did it have sideskirts?
