Whats the deal about if you ordered a XR8 Rebel now ? Since the AU3 is supposed to arrive in "October" ie.3 days.... will it be a AU3 ? Or does it kind of side step that issue being its own unique thing ?

Also, are the rumours about a XR8 Lowdnes Special true ? ie. 5.6 Stroker ? If so... wouldn't it be unlikely for it to cost the same as the current Rebel ?

I don't think the Lowndes Special is any more than speculation and rumour at this stage. I think (just an opinion) that the Rebel is the CL Special but Ford got cold feet at calling it a CL Special because Craig hasn't really proven himself in a Ford yet. Not bagging the guy, I reckon he's a great driver but you have to consider the facts.
If what I've said is not true and Ford do still have a CL Special on the books I doubt if we will see an AU version, more likely an AV.

Just spoke to my local ford dealer. Seems the XR8 Rebel is already sold out. Hopefully the XR8 will recieve the same body kit.

I read that the rebel body kit will become an option for the AUIII Xr8 and the current body kit will become standard as the new T-series will use awhole new one. Anyone else heard of this?

If I was Ford, I would Certainly put some sort of Falcon logo on it, like they drew up for his GMS V8. Just think about it - have a swooping bird on it, the ad slogan could be "You have just been swooped - Falcon LE"

Ford should release a LE Falcon but name it after the Ford driver that wins Bathurst. It could prove fatal- imagine the Rodney Forbes Falcon. D'oh!

I wish it was just called "XR8", take "falcon" off the car completely like they do for the T-Series.
