Trainspotters should be aware of the “Series III” badge, smoked headlight surrounds, body coloured mirrors and trim, the addition of side skirts, clear side indicator lens and an extra-tinted windscreen.

The 220kW Windsor 5.0L V8’s last stand was in the AU III XR8, replaced by all-new overhead cam versions in the BA series that followed.

New standard features: 17-inch alloy wheels, new badges.
