7. PERFORMANCE

Using the same methods employed by motoring magazines, Mitsubishi claims that Ralliart Magna – in either manual or automatic variants - is quicker than either the Falcon XR8 manual or HSV XU6 counterparts. (Source: Motor magazine, August 2001)

Ralliart Magna m/t Ralliart Magna a/t Falcon XR8 m/t HSV XU6 a/t
0-100 kph 6.71 secs 7.15 secs 7.36 secs 7.32 secs
0-400 metres 14.78 secs 15.12 secs 14.96 secs 15.30 secs

I understand you LOVE rice cars that doesn't last more than one testdrive before the clutch cracks up,I still don't understand the figures you wrote down there!!!

What the HELL do they think they are saying regarding times? That's absolutely bloddy absurd!

And yet people will read it and think the Magna is a better car and go buy one. Well I hope not!

i don't think we're going to see a huge rush to snapp up Ralliart Magnas. it may be a better car than the XR6 and XU6, but it's clearly out of the class when it comes to the 8s. also, avalon is a better car when it comes to the big 4, but do you see them selling up a storm? bah...
