Got Motor today!!

Here's a super rough scan of Motor's interpretation of the AV XR8 (we've all seen enough AV Falcon sketches...)



Also in the mag (besides the XR8 vs SS comparision) are short articles on cousin Craig Lowndes and step-brother Rob Herrod - and a short editorial mentioning Uncle Geoff. :D

Thats not too bad a sketch, it would be pretty damn good it it turns out like that.
Can't wait to get my copy of Motor in the mail either :D

If it looks like that I'll be restoring the AU for many years....

Wow!.. That's a pretty far out front end...
It would look pretty trick in the flesh I'd reckon.. :D
Obviously I'm getting old or something. SOrry - edge design is too harsh on this one....

I think it looks excellent, and it would look even better in the flesh!:nuts: A pretty good pic of what it COULD look like. I noticed it's still got the AU doors which are supposedly the only carry over.:rolleyes:

Carn, Pete...I'd reckon you'd come around pretty quick if they come out looking like that!, not to mention the mechanicals. ;)
I don't like the mecano wheels though.:(

Jeez! thats the falcon they should have built in 1998! Even if its all sharp n stuff, theres NOTHING else around like that - very distinctive. I wonder what sort of bodykit bits they'll have floating around for that in a few years time..

Square look front with big wheel arch lines (curves) and the front ones intersect the guard crease. Anyone want to guess what i think;)

Wouldn't be that you don't like the wheel arch flares would it? As well as a square front grafted to a curved body :D

Well it seems a logical step, it's an evolution from the AU. Like everyone said the AU was too new for when it was released, seems everyone is goin that style.
Don't mind that look at all, and backs up the AU shape now.

Looks pretty good, obviously a overly stylised version, half of that stuff would never make it into any real production car..

The rear looks good tho, and with less riceyness would look pretty good.

Definately agressive. I can certianly imagine a inline 6 cylinder DOHC turbo engine in it, they could proberly sell it to japan now its suffering from skyline withdrawals. I see some GT-R, old wrxness in there, which is proberly what the AU shape needed.

Ok something looks very fishy with that drawing, notice the front bumper openings on the sides and profile of the headlights around the grill area.:eek: :eek: :eek:

Bastards!:D

Actually the more I look at it, the more it looks like a rip off.
The side profile - the panels/wheel arches are exactly the same as the XR6 drawing I sketched and it is high off the ground - same as the XR6 sketch.

:eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:
