HSV Auto in autospeed

I tested the XR8 myself against VY clubsport before and I know the XR8 heads a car length or so ahead up till 90-100. This is another read from Autospeed ,which I started to admire, they recken 0-100 in 6.8sec. Mine does it in 6.15sec and with another person on board.


What's the story with car mags?????Are they testing the cars again appropriately soon?

Different day, different track, different driver and most importantly different measuring equipment.

How did you measure your times?

Yes i read that article on Autospeed last night.

Of particular interest they said that

"And talking of cosmetics, it was the body kit that attracted the most comment while we had the car. Unfortunately, we didn't find one person that liked it - and many were quite clear in their negative views"

Other than that they said it drove quite well
