Question AU XR8 400m times?

I'm curious as to the AU XR8 1/4 mile times with the three variants of the 5.0 litre V8. 185,200 & 220 kw versions, many thanks in advance.

Mark.

0-400m 14.96 s

We were impressed with the flexibility of the 220kW hand-built Falcon engine. It swept to a 15.3 second 0-400m and was superior to the bigger Gen III engine until 100 km/h.

14.68 s @ 158 km/h

AUForte-5.0 litre windsor, sounds good it being able to smoke the 5.7l genIII up to 100. But 15.3 doesn't sound that quick when a my EB XR8 was meant to be good for 15.65!

First one I found, must've been a dodgy test as the rest seem to be much faster!

You're not wrong!! 15.3 secs compared to 14.68 is a massive diff mate, the RACQ must've been stuck in first!!

Just read the rest of it, they managed a 15.3 as well in a Gen3 on the same day They said it was slow to 100 then reeled the Falcon in, they raved about the Falcon.

im a member of the Royal Ass Club Qld..they dont know much about cars at all..they seem very biased..i think they must get some 'fringe' benefits from the dealerships where they get the cars to test drive..i have read heaps of reports in the free magazine i get from em..mostly rubbish reports u cant believe
