Whats a Barra?

Ive noticed we seem to have a lot people coming into the dealership asking to see the new barra. when shown they say isnt that a falcon?

everyone whos looked at the BA falcon is impressed but it would seem people have got the idea the barra is a new line altogether.

Hmmm... Very intersting. None of the Ford advertising uses the Barra term referencing their cars. I can only assume they have been told by a fanatic about the car and have asked no furthur questions... You reckon they would at least know its the new Falcon.

i reckon a model of the BA shoulde be called Barra, maybe like an FPV special edition. The name has a real good strong sound to it.

Noticed the other day at the Ford Website going though the pricing options, they refer to the Barra 182 engine in the drop down options list.
