FORD XD ESP
The fourth leg of this month’s Ford V8 quadrella is this XD ESP 351. Back in 1997 the XD’s price was around a third the cost of a new XR8 but times have changed. ESPs have become the most coveted 1980s Falcons and while XEs tend to be cost more they are also more common than XDs. This car in silver grey looks very similar to a GL-based 5.8 shown in a Register of ESP Falcons. If so then it is an early-production car and one of fewer than 300 (estimated) that were built. Like all performance Falcons, money being sought for ESP has soared during the past 18 months.
