why barra

Hello

Im just woundering about the new falcon,its called and people call it the "barra" why is it called the barra ?

with a name like this it should be a top seller in new zealand,sounds more like a sheep than a car:s6:

baarrrra

Baaaaaaaaaa

Oi !!!

It's not gonna be called the Barra (whats wrong with Barra?!) - Barra is the codename for it.
It could be AV, AX, anything; just wait 'till September.

it just sounds gay Barra and no need for people to get upset over it,thats just what i think,
working with kiwis and sheep jokes soon as you hear the barra you think its a sheep calling out

what about the AV Falcon ?

Barra is just a name picked out by Ford, they tended to use Australian bird names previously, Ibis, Osprey..etc
Raptor was used for the crossover vehicle, Barra seemed to break the mould of using bird names, may break a few other moulds too....

Run Forrest , Run.......

If you think about it, it had to be named 'barra' for a reason, and somebody named it. So somebody knows why it is 'barra', and I want to know too!
