What do you mean XR8 is not available

I have noticed that there seems to be a general conception that XR8s are not available without a wait of several weeks.
There are two up here in sunny QLD at two of the local dealers, both Citric and look horn....
If anyone is looking email me and I will give details and no I don't work for a car flogger.

Here is wisdom.
Let him that hath understanding count the number of the BEAST:
for it is the number of a F6 Typhoon; and its number is 0217.

Maybe the fact that they're both citric may explain why they're still unsold :)

Seeing more & more on the road myself - look pretty shmick !!

I was told by my local dealer in Adelaide that the waiting list for an XR8 manual would only be 4-5 weeks tops, I did want any of the floor stock (3 available at the time). Maybe the perception that this car is not available relates to the auto version, which will not be available until March I think.

March-April I've been told. (Leaner more towards the April than the March).

Phantom and Citric Acid manuals in stock in Canberra.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
