Todays Drive: Its an XR6

Yeh they state in the article without a doubt that the car IS an XR6, and that they have edited the front bumper to hide something there.

"FOrd is said to be working toward greater visual differentiation between XR6 and XR8. THese pictures are of the XR6 - with 17" wheels and a spoiter kit similar to that used on the AU model - so expect larger weheels and a more radical look for the XR8"

Couple pics which we've all seen and the ute as well.

Just bet me to it.:s2:

Does anyone think the XR8 will deffinatly have a few cosmetic changes {appart from wheels and pipes}?

They also predict base Falcon to be around 175kw with an entry non Turbo XR6 at 190kw. If this is the case then could we have seen this and Turbo and XR8 are still to come?

I can't seem to find any Barra articles on Drive. I hate their new layout!

Yeah, I think that there will be an 'XR6' badge 'floating in the grille like the blue oval does.

Also these pics have no badges apart from the blue oval, no chance this is the case for the showroom version.

So the bonnet bludge falcon could be the XR8 (and not a t-series)?

And one more thing... its said that the Intercooled turbo XR6 will get around 6psi.
What gives???
The VL was non-intercooled and was 7psi (to my understanding)
