Xr8 Series 2

I seen an XR8 today which may be a close indication on what the series 2 will be like.The major difference that really stood out was that the happy face at the front was changed to a sad face similiar to the GT but much smaller.Another difference was the exhaust tip it was two single type square tips similiar to the HSV exhaust.

Re: Xr8 Series 2

New exhaust tips are a must in the BAII range. They need to be more stylish than the current XR/FPV ones - more like HSV tips. I've seen a few XR8's with an HSV style double tip and they look good!

Re: Xr8 Series 2

word is BA 2 will get minor changes and "maybe" some gearbox changes in some models, but the next falcon (copperhead) will really have some good changes that will rate it pretty highly

I'll take more poke, with less fat, than re-shaped exhaust tips any day.

Re: Xr8 Series 2

Id like to see atleast 10 kw in the xr8 update, a few kg less, a 6 speeder with sensible ratios and a final drive to match. Do I ask for much?
