2016 Ford Falcon XR8 Sprint Review

It's the final Ford Falcon. Does the Falcon XR8 Sprint have the goods to offer a fitting sign off?

That time I built the Mad Max Interceptor

Mad Max: Fury Road is seeing tremendous success at box offices around the world. And one particular element has hugely excited fans of the franchise - the return of the XB.

Ford Falcon FG X XR8 - Visiting a Falcon Fanatic

With the launch of the Falcon FG X, Ford invited Falcon Fanatics from around the country to come and see the car, but not everyone could make it.

Ford and Holden. Good start. Ford and Holden utes, at the beach. Getting even better...

Ford Falcon XR8 v Holden Commodore SS : Comparison review

History dictates that (power) wars don’t end in draws. When the Ford Falcon XR8 arrived in 1992 it made an identical 165kW of power to the Holden Commodore SS and with 388Nm of torque listed a crucial 3Nm ahead. From either side of the trenches the two 5.0-litre engines threw grenades until Holden used Yank weaponry in 1999 with the 220kW 5...

So it's 2005, Russell Ingall has just won the V8 Supercar Championship, Ford Australia are making good profits under the genius of Geoff Polites and my 10th wedding anniversary where we decided to treat ourselves with our first new car. Barely more than a decade ago - it seems a seismic shift in Australian motoring must have occurred when I blinked...

2005 Ford Falcon XR6 Review

Car and Driver labeled the XR6 the 'budget BMW' and I couldn't agree more. Ford offers an incredible package for the money, who else gives you a straight six, rear wheel drive and a luxury car ride with off the lot prices starting in the high 30's. This is my second Falcon now, my previous car was an AU Forte, which proved reliable for the 18 months I owned it...

2015 Ford Falcon XR8 Review

This is the bang for buck bargain of the century.. Many dealers are selling at $55k driveaway for a car that is essentially the $77990 R-Spec GT from 2012. The XR8 sprint has been released but dealers are gouging customers for $70k-$72k driveaway.. The sprint has 2.9% more power and less than 1% more torque for $15k more!! Performance data puts them line ball also...
