Ford has revealed that its new limited edition Falcons XRs will wear the Sprint badge.

The special Falcons will be available with both the turbocharged six-cylinder and the supercharged V8 engines.

The Falcon XR Sprint series will pair an automatic transmission with the inline six-powered XR6 while the V8-powered XR8 will be teamed with the choice of either an auto or manual transmission.

While full specifications will be revealed closer to it launch date Ford has confirmed that the new Sprints will have increased power over the regular XR6 and XR8.

The new Sprints will also benefit from an upgraded brake package, new wheels, Sprint embroidery on the interior, Sprint badging and unique build plaque on the engine.

The Sprint badge is a throwback to heritage of the Falcon, including the 1993 ED XR8 that had a Tickford enhanced V8, special suspension and interior enhancements. Only 300 examples were built.

"The Falcon XR Sprint is aligned to the understated look of our notable historic performance Falcons; they will be styled with design and dynamic influences that are distinctly different in feel, presence and execution," says Ford president and CEO Graeme Whickman.

With Ford due to cease local production in 2016 examples of the last XR8 Falcons have been in high demand, as fans of the performance car snap up the locally built V8-powered Fords.

"The XR Sprint will be a limited-edition series and one we think will be highly regarded by our Falcon fans. Ultimately too, like many of our performance Fords, we expect it to be a highly collectible car," Whickman said.
