I just saw an XR8 sprint in white which i think is almost ready for the wreckers. The rear spoiler is missing with dents and holes all over the boot lid, the front bar appears to have been riveted to the car and is split in the corner of the passenger side and on the otherside has dropped. Read bar is not aligned either. Wheels are rusty and the car is in general disrepair. Paint faded. It could do with a rebuild. Its not for sale, its just what I saw.

Sprints are a hard car to come by, so when you see one in the condition i just saw, makes you wonder why they own a car like that. Wouldn't it be better in the hands of someone who would at least care for it and keep it looking good. Its a limited release car, so the least you can do is care for it.

Some people have a bad enough time showing respect to other people's vehicle's let alone their own,these people shouldn't own a vehicle, to them It's just a car that get's them from a to b and they are the 1st one's to say that,"it's just a car",what they don't realise is if they don't look after their car it wont get them from a to b.

Pretty sure Sprints never had red exterior trim. Didn;t they have a black stripe on the bars and door moulds??
It was in a car park of a shopping centre. Just before when you said sprints never had red trim, i think you are spot on. This sprint had tickford badges, and on the boot lid had a sprint badge, those sprint wheels but the trim was the same as something like the EF XR8. So maybe it was an EF XR8, just that they put the sprint badges on it. I saw it again this morning on my way to the airport parked at the same car park. It was the same shape as my old ef futura

Sorry for all the confusion. I just figured that cause it said sprint and was badged up with the wheels, that i thought it was. I dunno much about those cars, just that they are nice and I'd like an 8. Again, sorry about the misinformation. But still, in bad condition, even if it was a standard ef xr8.
