Anyone notice this at the HSV stand at the motorshow
There has been some talk about the claimed power figures for Ford's new range of engines, especially from HSV, about Ford using DIN figures and HSV using ECE. While looking at the HSV's at the Melb Motorshow, I noticed that all the HSV's power outputs were stated like this:
Power: 260kW (270 DIN) @ 5600rpm
I know its not much, but its just funny that I've never seen it before all this stuff was brought up by HSV and they are now threatened by Ford and FPV.
BTW I was quite impressed by the HSVs, except for the front grill and front bumper, which IMO is just plain ugly. If they put the front bar from the SSX onto the HSVs, I think they would look a lot better.
Just thought it was interesting and a little funny,
