Ford Falcon XR8 production speeds up

Strong demand for Falcon XR8 sees Ford up production…

It seems a larger number of Australian car buyers are interested in getting the last edition of the Ford Falcon XR8 into their driveway than Ford had anticipated.

Describing demand for the XR8 as ‘amazing’, Ford has confirmed that they had anticipated sales of the sporty model to run to around 1200, now that production number will increase to at least 2800 vehicles.

David Katic is the head of marketing at Ford Australia; he says Ford dealerships across the nation are asking for more XR8’s.

“As a result we’ve been working closely with our key stakeholders to find a way of increasing production; which we can now confirm.”

Powered by a 335kW/570Nm supercharged 5.0 litre V8 engine, the FG Ford Falcon XR8 is priced from $53,490.
