PRICE GUIDE: $27,000-$40,000
THE facelifted FG X was the upgrade that took the whole Falcon thing to its final resting place. But it’s significant that the Turbo was there the whole way, and remained a big seller right to the end. So popular was the concept that Ford decided that, as part of its last hurrah, it would write a love letter to us petrolheads in the form of two very special models: the XR8 Sprint and XR6 Sprint.
The XR8 Sprint got the blown Miami engine from the FPV GT, while the XR6 Sprint got a 325kw/576nm tune, making it easily the fastest of its kind. Ever. And also the last. Sniff. You’ll probably be lucky to ever see an XR6 Sprint in the wild, as most were bought by collectors and shedded for a big cash-in in a few years. We get it, but it’s still a shame. And modifying one? Forget about it.
