Ride and Handling

The Falcon XR6 Sprint was sharper, faster and more in control. It had a re-engineered engine, complete with a larger turbocharger, intercooler and injectors, which is just the start. It also had lightweight carbon fibre air intake under the bonnet, a first for Falcon and the gold standard in performance. The result was a Falcon XR6 Sprint loaded with a hefty 325kW of power and 576Nm of torque. To ensure total performance, the Falcon XR6 Sprint received a tailor-made launch control system and a firmer sports suspension with revised spring rates and increased rebound damping for the ultimate in body control.

Ride and Handling

This was the most powerful Falcon XR8 ever. It produced a phenomenal 345kW of power with 575Nm of torque with transient overboost for up to 55kW and 75Nm more power and torque.

What’s more, the Falcon XR Sprint line was fitted with a firmer sports suspension with revised spring rates and increased rebound damping for the ultimate in body control.
