Question Clubbie Or Gt?

Clubbie or GT
If the GT is 290kw and 520NM, how does HSV plan to keep selling at the rate it does when the GT is priced against the Clubbie. And to add to that drama how does the GTS expect to sell when you get 10kw for an extra 25K? Looks like its going to be a tougher war for Crennan and the clayton boys this time around. OHHH, I have just worked it out. Crennan in his wisdom has made the Y GTS a limited edition of 100 cause that is probably the maximum they could shove out the door at 95K! he he h eh eh eh

LOL agreed there even at 100 with the styling of that thing id be suprised if they would sell but i guess each to their own but i will laugh very hard at the guy who buys a body kitted commodore for 95K what a waste:S

there are more than enough people that will buy them just because they are a Holden... that's just the way it is.
The power of Holden's marketing machine is awesome ... I hope Ford are looking closely....

HSV will probably sell twice as much as FPV, which is an improvement instead of 10 times as much during the T-series.

Didn't work with the Calibra - Holden can have failures too, and the GTS may well become one of them now Ford are offering something competitive in a straight line at last.

I for one, would just love to see that smug look get wiped off Crennan's face.

The Y series HSV are Ugly as shyte. I have not seen them in metal yet so maybe my opinion of them will change, But I think they really look terrible. SS commodore, and especially the Ute looks great. The SSX concept Hatch or whatever, that's the BEST looking VY front I have seen, If only HSV's front looked like that, then they might actually have soem time to improve that disasterous rear end.

Good for you! Congratulations - you're person number 4 who actually likes the Y-Series!!!

All HSV needs now is another 96 people and they are set They have shot themselves in the foot - not only have they received a newfound ugliness, but their unjustifiably high pricing scheme is now coming under rightful fire!

But, as always, that won't stop the sheep from lapping them up... bad sheep! Bad sheep!

I saw a VY SS leaving the airport Friday night. I can honestly say it's ugly, and that's not just because I'm a Ford driver!

xa-coupe hit the nail on the head with his words of wisdom.
