Re: HSV Coupe-4

I'm suprised about the price tag, I thought having the 4wd would be on paper, a reason to boost the price above the RWD GTS sedan/coupe.

My dad's boss is one of those 30-40 with an order for the vehicle. He is having it resprayed in yellow as soon as it gets here. Apparantly it only comes in one colour or something.

What a waste of $90,000.

Re: HSV Coupe-4

I suprised HSV went ahead with this car, it's absolutely useless having a 4wd car like this, with that said i'm sure they'll all find homes very quickly

Re: HSV Coupe-4

4wd might help it to put some extra power down. Way to go for doing something different.

Re: HSV Coupe-4

Like most others I am very interested to see how this pans out for HSV. Wouldn't the AWD need more power to get it going, yet the car is only 270kw? We'll see I guess.

I don't think the AWD can handle much more than the 270kws it's already got.

At least Holden is having a go. If it was capable of having more power, I think it'd be pretty decent in terms of handling and performance.

Re: HSV Coupe-4

Agreed! Good on Holden for giving a shot with AWD. It's not too bad even with 270kw, gotta remember the extra grip the car has now.

Wonder when will FPV go into AWD and give us an AWD F6???!!!???
