In the Falcon brochure, it lists that the XR8 will have 17" wheels as standard. OK, so it was produced a long time ago, and things are obviously subject to change.
Rumour on this website suggests that the 18's might be standard, and that the XR8 might even get leather as standard.
But interestingly enough, the newly released Exterior Interactive feature on the www.newfalcon.com.au
website shows the XR8 with 17" rims as standard, and 18" rims as optional.
Curious, don't you think? This interactive thing was only turned on around December 19 - so I wonder if it has been just sitting there waiting, if it is using the same info as the brochure, or if the info on the std XR8 rims really IS up to date?
Oh, and the original bonnet bulge is still there too.
HOWEVER, the Exterior PICS of the XR8 have been removed. Something is about to happen. It might even be happening as I type this (Dec 20).
The thick plottens....
