Ford XR8 Sprint No. 1 donated to charity

First V8 Sprint to be auctioned to aid diabetes research

Demand for Ford's final Falcon Sprint models has been huge, with only a handful of cars believed to remain unsold.

However, if you're prepared to pay a little over the odds, here's your opportunity to secure XR8 Sprint No. 001 and help out a good cause at the same time.

Ford has donated the first production XR8 Sprint to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund, which is auctioning the car to fund research into the treatment of type 1 diabetes.

Bidding currently stands at $84,000 and the auction will run until midnight on May 31. For more information or to register a bid click here.
