I thought that blue oval was the one thing going against the vehicle.

Perhaps the XR dominates sales down under like the F150 does here.

Guys its a 2011 XR6Turbo. These are what as tradies drive to work in. 4,0litre double over hed cam 24 valve intercooled. 6 speed manual, limited slip diff. 270 kilowatts and 550 nm of torque from the factory. Mines been SCT flash tuned to 315 kilowatts (410 HP). its bucket loads of fun to drive. Basically I can go down the road in 3rd gear bury my foot through the fire wall kick the clutch and it will spin the rear tyres all the way to 4th, Its fun trying to pull the boat up the ramp in the rain as you can imagine. Colour is colour I designed. Under strong lights its actually pink. during the day it deep maroon with a subtle old metal flake clear with fairly dark tinted windows. Ill hook it to the boat and send through some photos.

This link shows you what these engines and gearboxs are capable of

Had to pick up the boat today and take it to the dealer for some pre-season maintenance and to fix some gel coat scratches. This was the first time I've towed this baby. The dealership delivered it to the marina last spring and it stayed there all summer and winter (in storage).

I was a little concerned about how my Tundra would do towing it. It's got the 5.8L and tow package and is rated over 10,000 pounds. The boat is 5,550 plus the trailer. No problems there. But I was worried it might not have enough traction, especially if the tires got wet, to pull it up the ramp. But it did great.

Now the question is whether to have the dealer install a Wetsounds 420EQ while they have it in the shop. Hmm....

2007 FJ pulls good but gets horrible mileage when doing it. It does get off the pavement too.
