EBII XR6 Vs AUII XR6
Just been reading the November 1992 Issue of Wheels (GT Collectors Edition) and stubled on some very interesting data.
They done a comparo between the VP Commodore SS V6 and the EBII XR6.
What got me was the times of the EBII XR6 it really went like stink.
The article says these times were done with a full tank of fuel and 2 onboard.
Here is a contrast times between an AUII XR6 tested in Wheels at November 2000. Both are 5 speed manuals.
0-60 3.2 3.8
0-80 4.8 5.5
0-100 7.2 8.2
1/4's 15.2@142km/h 1/4's 15.8@114km/h
Should be noted Motor mag have got 7.88 0-100 and 15.33 1/4's out of an AUII HP. Still i'm very curious how the EBII can jump to 100km/h so quick.
Keeping note that the AUII has identical weight , more power, free'er revving engine I cannot see why the AUII cannot match the times of the EBII. Comparing the EBII it makes the Magna VRX look stupid.
Just a thought to discuss.
