XR8 – the Power and the Passion

Ford Australia today gave an early look at the next generation of Ford V8 performance vehicles – the stunning BA Falcon XR8.

"There's little doubt that everyone will know the new XR8 when they see it," said Ford Australia President Geoff Polites.

"The power bulge in the bonnet is a real give-away.

"And it's not just for looks. Underneath the bonnet lies a unique V8 engine that will deliver a new level of response and refinement for the Australian performance car market."

The Falcon XR8 will be powered by a 5.4-litre V8 boasting quad camshafts, four valves per cylinder, high flow cylinder heads and stainless steel extractors.

"What that all means is 260kW of power and 500Nm of torque, and a new chapter in Ford's rich performance history."

Mr Polites said the BA Falcon XR8 would be released in early 2003
