Ford is drawing on its performance heritage to launch the limited-edition, high-performance Falcon Sprint series. A total of just 1400 limited edition Falcon Sprints will be built with 550 being XR6 Sprints and 850 XR8 Sprints. New Zealand will be allocated 150 cars - 50 XR6 Sprints and 100 XR8 Sprints. Each will receive numbered build plates for each model - located on the engine.
Visually, the Sprint series will receive subtle exterior design cues to mark their exclusivity, including 19-inch black wheels, upgraded Brembo brake package in gold, black headlamp bezels, a distinctive black rear deck spoiler and new front foglamp surrounds. To provide further distinction, the XR8 Sprint adds a Silhouette black painted roof and black wing mirrors.
At the core of the Sprint are two proven engines, Ford's turbocharged 4.0 in-line six cylinder and acclaimed Supercharged 5.0-litre V8. The Ford Falcon XR8 Sprint will be powered by a bespoke Sprint calibrated version of Ford's 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 that develops 345 kW @ 5,750 rpm and 575 Nm @ 2,220-6,250 rpm3. The XR6 Sprint is also a performance powerhouse, developing 325 kW @ 6,000 rpm and 576 Nm @ 2,750 rpm3.
