My first drive of a BA XR8 ute

Some of you may have read my first drive of the BA XT V8.

Now for the ute XR8.... amazingly a lot more control on the rear end. Didn't fish tail as much as the XT. The performance... it liked to breath a lot better at higher RPM than the Barra 220!

THe sports ute is also $10k cheaper than the sedan!!...
downside... 1800kgs!!!... but driving it didnt feel like it was that heavy.

hmmmm... how does an IT officer with a suit look in a ford ute? :oP
