Thanks also is there any times for the XR8 I would expect 6.8 0-100 and 14.8 0-400m. Have a look at the Motor mag times at the perisuit ute 14.4 0 -400 m and thats 290kw.

I think the XR8 did a best of 6.1 0-100 and 14.2 0-400m. The Pursuit was slower because it had taller diff and leaf sprung rear axel.

I reckon the XR8 Ute is great value at around $40K, considering that the sedan is around $50K. How often does anyone use the rear seats anyway (no backseat romping comments please).

I hope to pick up one of these in manual, in 2-3 (2006) years time hopefully for around $27K at which time I should be able to sell my 99 XR6 VCT for around $17K ($10K changeover) ...

$27k in 3 years. I think every Ford lover in OZ would buy one at that price.

Thumbs up

Welcome to Ford Forums.

Yep, depreciation gives everyone a chance to buy the great cars which may be out of reach when they're new. We just have to bloody wait.... Damn.

How's the new XR8 ute ?

FANBLOODYTASTIC. AWSOME MACHINE. I PREVIOUSLY HAVE OWNED AN XE 351 4SPD UTE, EBGT, ED XR8 AUTO, ED XR8 SUPERCHARGED 5 SPD, XH XR8 UTE AUTO, AND AN AUII XR8 UTE AUTO.

AND THE BA KICKS THEY'RE ARSE. (ONLY JUST KICKS THE ED'S. THAT WAS A FAST CAR).

I WILL SLOWLY POST PHOTOS OF ALL THESE VEHICLES AS I GET A CHANCE AND WON'T BE POSTING THE BA TILL IT HAS BEEN LOWERED TO THE RIGHT HEIGHT AND ALL MY LITTLE TOUCHES ARE COMPLETE.
