the Chevy SS/ Holden Commodore is known as one of the more modest rear-wheel-drive V8 performance sedans you can have with manual transmissions. But a similar car that is not talked about often is the ford Falcon XR8 Sprint, and now one is for sale.
Although sporting an automatic transmission, this particular 2016 Falcon XR8 Sprint was purchased by Premcar and updated to the “Holy Grail” specification, and it has only 90 km (56 miles) on the odometer, which means it is practically new. The car was also the last XR8 Sprint sold and served as the company’s main show car called the P001.
Listing for sale in Sports car sales in Australia, the Falcon is finished in Kinetic Blue offset by a set of black wheels and gold brakes. But part of what makes this car so special is the aforementioned Holy Grail package, which includes a cast aluminum intake manifold, a triple-pass intercooler system, a part-mounted insulated air-to-water heat exchanger. front, an engine recalibration, a high-performance system. steering pump, a stainless steel performance exhaust system, 12-way adjustable coilover suspension, and larger, lighter wheels and tires.
Only 100 of these Falcons were made by Premcar with the Holy Grail package, which powered the car’s 5.0-liter supercharged V8 to 647 hp (657 PS / 483 kW) and 555 lb-ft (753 Nm) of torque. However, the price of the car is not cheap, as it is priced at AU $ 160,000 (US $ 117,183).
