I was chatting today with a mechanic who has a friend working at FPV and the word on the December release of the new supercharged 5L aluminium V8 FPV is that it will be available to the customer with either a 6psi or 8psi boost factory setting - customer's choice I believe.
So if you are thinking of buying an XR8 right now, maybe hold on until December. :P

I find that picture funny.... we all know what an FPV FG looks like... unless it is a completely different fpv style front.

Maybe new front bumper style to accomodate the look of the silver cooler sitting behind it? Or stop chip stones while testing it up and down the hume :P

I heard/read somewhere that Ford were going to use the supercharged V8 from the Jaguar Xtype-R's, being that Jag and Ford are tied up somehow, but that was some time ago so might be very old news.

You're right it is OLD news, Ford have sold Jaguar (it's now owned by Tata [India])

What intercooler? All I see is a blurred number plate.


FMv3 needs multi-quote.
