peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
only partly true Peter.

Ford are dropping the 3v V8 (220kw) as it is no longer in production.

They will continue with the 4V V8 (260KW+) which is found in the XR8 and GT models.

But they will no longer provide a v8 option onthe XT model

Interesting Peter. There is no mention of this in the news / google. How reliable is the info?

Got any links to confirm it?

BTW this should be Road Car Forum unless your talking about motorsport

who wants a v8 in an XT anyway ?? if you are going to get a Falcon V8, you get a XR8.

If it wasnt for the fleet and govt buyers actually wanting the XT, it would have got the backside anyway.. the XR range is the car that appeals to the public masses.. I almost think that Ford should drop the XT and just run with the XR style across the whole range.
