EB Falcon S XR8

Ford logo1 Jul 1991

By BYRON MATHIOUDAKIS

Confusingly prefixed with an S until the ED’s release, the XR series began its successful career as the XR8 sedan, which heralded the return of Windsor V8 power after a nine-year absence.

With its 165kW/388Nm 5.0L V8, sports-tune suspension and upgraded brakes, the S-XR8 recalled Ford’s original 1967 XR GT’s pursuit of affordable sports sedan performance.

Standard features: Air-con, alloy wheels, power steering, sports seats, front and rear spoilers, limited slip differential (LSD), sports instrumentation, central locking, radio/cassette player, split-fold rear seats, adjustable steering wheel, body coloured trim.
