Ford has confirmed it will release a limited-edition Falcon XR Series sedan in 2016.

The limited-edition series will be called XR Sprint, a name that ties into the performance history of the Falcon - the first Falcon Sprint being released in USA back as a 1963˝ model being available in hardtop and convertible bodystyles. It continued in 1964 with a 260 cid V8 as standard.

The development programme for the Falcon Sprint has utilised the full capabilities of the Ford You Yangs Proving Ground at Lara (Victoria), including the emissions lab, ride and handling test track and durability circuit as well as real-world development kilometres on public roads.
