No More Windsor V8s

I heard that you can't walk into a Ford showroom and order an XR8, or any T-Series cars cause they have sold all the V8s. I remember last year they took delivery of the last allocated amount, and now they are all gone.

Yeha they won't build'em any more, just gotta choose whats available on stock. So it's kind of a luck of the draw if you end up with one with bodykit, premium stereo, leather, auto or manual.

I'd imagine there'll still be a few good ons around.

I work in Pre-Delivery at a ford dealership and I have noticed a decline in XR8's coming in, or anything with a V8 for that matter.
