Didn't think The Monaro CV6 was that slow..
Just read teh June Motor magazine. Must say it has a few cool articles in there from the Barra article, GENIII comparo's and teh article i found most interesting: Better Six which tests the Rallyart Magna and the Monaro CV6.
The Magna in a manual posted 0-100km/h times of 7.19 and 1/4's of 15.26 which is pretty decent i reckon.
The Monaro on the other hand with the Supercharged Buick 6 posted times of 0-100 8.43 and 1/4's in 16.12. Sure it's an auto but i seriously thought it'd be quicker than that. Ahh well next time i see a CV6 at the lights i'd show the the driver abit of ford power. :s6: :s6:
