Su­per scoop

A WHEELS TRA­DI­TION

Wheels (Australia) - - April 2019 -

Back in 1985, ed­i­tor Peter Robin­son pub­lished pic­tures of the 1988 EA Fal­con – nearly three years out from launch and at a time when the XF was our best­selling car. Just as in­cred­i­bly, though iden­ti­cal to the pro­duc­tion EA, the pic­tures were buried on page 35 of Amer­i­can mag­a­zine Car & Driver, as the Yanks be­lieved they were of a car just weeks away from launch! Ev­i­dently leaked deeply within Ford, the im­ages were meant for Ford top brass eyes only, and re­main one of our all-time great­est scoops.
