Best Performance Range

Honestly, who do you think has the upper hand between the Pride (Holden, HSV, CSV) and the Oval (Ford, FPV, the people that built the Arrow thingy)?

I want you to remember the HRT 427 when making your choices.

Just imagine there are no real badges on the cars and you are a WRX driver.

Holden, they've got more cars, and currently, more respect.

Best performance range at the moment.. dollar for dollar I would say FPV.
If you had've asked me this question 2 years ago I would've said HSV. Either way you look at it, the performance car market for us consumers has vastly improved over the last few years. A good thing for us all..

if FPV deliver as per expectations then probably FPV (from a value for money perspective).

It's too early to say, we need to wait and see how the FPV range is received not only by the press but by everyday drivers.

Well considering the HRT427 is myth at this point I would say FPV. They have the bang for buck advantage at this point. They arent released yet, so until there are reviews, etc, I couldnt be certain.

And I can imagine this being such an unbiased poll in a Ford forum as well.
