My BA XR8 experience
The day finally arrived, the day was today, when i had finally experienced what the XR8 is all about.
I will be honest with you all, when the specs were released at the introduction of the BA XR8, i was ecstatic about the power but quite disappointed about the extra weight. In all the mags, the XR6t gained the marketing edge and is now mostly believed to be the prefered performance package... to some degree, i was also one of these people to believe this and automatically think that the XR8 wasnt as sweet as it should've been...
Who was i kidding, i hadn't even driven the thing and i already had a mind set that the XR8 was an underperforming lard arse falcon.
Today made me realise that a drive in an XR8 can totally change your view on things, this car blew me away, the sound, the performance, it's firm yet absolutely comfortable suspension tune, the XR8 exceeded all my expectations, i have a new respect for the XR8 and walked away with my pearly whites shining bright..
In the new year, i know what i will be shopping for, a BOSS 5.4L, whether it be the XR or GT, i don't know yet, but geeeez...what an engine.
