The very last XR8 Sprint offered in the Ford Network, purchased by Premcar and then upgraded to Holy Grail specifications … and now offered for sale. On display in our Sydney Showroom. Offers over $160,000 are invited.
Introducing the Holy Grail of Holy Grails. In Kinetic Blue, XR8 Sprint Build No. 739 was the last Falcon XR8 Sprint ever sold in the country, through Westpoint Ford in Hoppers Crossing, Victoria.
With only 58 delivery kms on the clock this XR8 Sprint with 6 speed ZF automatic transmission was located and purchased by Premcar, the team of engineers responsible for the development of the Miami engine project for Ford Australia’s release of the FG Falcon in 2010. Premcar also contributed engineering expertise to Ford including the final 345kW/575Nm Sprint tune.
Once in PremCar’s hands this XR8 Sprint received build no. P001, and was fully upgraded to the sensational ‘GT Holy Grail’ specification, that is 483kW/753Nm (flywheel) package designed to fulfil the Miami’s OE power output potential. The car enhanced to what Premcar call ‘beyond OEM’ benchmark in terms of testing and validation - ultimately presenting the car as the complete Falcon driver's package.
And while this car received it's extra helping of grunt, drivetrain and handling upgrades the idea was to not add any kilometres to its current meagre tally.
Now with just 90 kilometres on the clock, having featured in a cover story in MOTOR Magazine and serving as Premcar's principal show car, P001, the Holy Grail of Holy Grail V8 powered Aussie muscle cars is offered for sale.
With the purchase of this XR8 Sprint, the buyer is not only getting the ultimate Miami engine and handling upgrade package. They're also getting a BRAND NEW XR8 Sprint and the last one sold, with arguably the lowest mileage on the market.
The Holy Grail package includes:
- New design cast aluminium intake manifold with integrated plumbing for triple pass intercooler
- Triple pass intercooler system - chills the air before entering the combustion chamber ensuring face melting performance
- Twin air, triple water pass intercooler with unmatched efficiency
- Associated hoses/pipes and fittings for coolant circuit – electrical intercooler control system
- Isolated front mount air-to-water heat exchanger
- Recalibration of the Miami engine to deliver 483kW of ground shaking power
- Engineer program truncation delivery of power
- New high performance power steering pump bringing precision turn in and laser shape response to steering inputs
- New bi-modal ADR compliant (stainless) exhaust with specific transmission matching calibration
- Adjustable (12 way) unique suspension package, coil over/dampers
- Bespoke billet aluminum trail blade/bushing for maximum control using Grade 7 Aircraft Aluminum to facilitate the fitment of wider wheel/tyres package. This is a significant component in the program … allowing the fitment of 295 rear rubber to harness the power
- Lightweight (new design) wheel package (20% reduction),19 x 8.5" and 19 x 10" fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres 255/35 & 295/30 … the best road tyre on the market at the time. The suspension tuning was designed from the tyre delivering the best handling Falcon ever.
Only 100 Holy Grail versions of the Miami engine Falcon were offered by Premcar. This one, belongs to Premcar, built in-house by the very same guys who were responsible for much of the development of the supercharged GT, GTP, GTF, XR8 and Sprint. The car is sure to be a winner for the avid FORD collector. In this guise, it’s fair to say it is ‘the B E S T Falcon ever built’ … in the words of the great John BOWE, he knows plenty about cars and his exposure in the Ford world given his roles in the development of both Ford and FPV vehicles.
The Holy Grail is ADR Compliant and Engineer Certified in every State of Australia, making it universally compliant and friendly in terms of insurance … given it’s Certified Status we know Shannon’s Insurance has Holy Grail listed as an Authorised upgrade on their system.
