Just another America doesn't get the good cars thread



That there is a completely stock car available in Australia. It's a GTS Commodore and it has 19" wheels as an option, powered by an LS1, and it pretty much kicks butt. America sucks I'm moving to the land down under.

Now that car rocks! Wow. Very, very nice. The styling isn't bad at all. Imho.

Here's some facts I found for it...

(Reported from Feb2000 source)
0-60 = 5.7 sec
0-100 = 13.8 sec
152 mph top speed

There is also a version called the HSV Commodore GTS 300 (same engine, just a Callaway LS1 version)
0-60 = 5.2 sec
0-100 = 12.0 sec
170 (est) top speed

Got this from this website

The car is made by Holden...a subsidiary of GM. They wouldn't want to hurt Corvette sales.

The performance aspects of that car are badass! However, I think I'd rather stuff that Calloway LS-1 under the hood of my probe...
hmmm - note to self: Win the Lotto
