Monaro Article - crappy times

http://carpoint.ninemsn.com.au/revie...ry.asp?ID=3673

"The supercharged CV6 model weighs 1603kg, exactly the same as the Commodore S, which does 0-100km/h in 8.7 seconds. The Monaro's more aerodynamic form may knock a tenth or two off this.

Interestingly, the CV8 weighs 40kg more than the V6, even though the alloy V8 block is actually lighter (Commodore SS is 10kg lighter overall than supercharged Commodore S). Even so, it should be good for a 0-100km/h time around 8.0 seconds and a quarter mile in the high 14s."


Are those times way off or what??? 8.7 and 8.0 for cars costing 48k and 57k is pretty bad so ford holdens sake i hope this is wrong actually nah i hope these are the times cos they are **edited** lol

Commodore S is slow, around the high 8's as you said, but the S/C S is quite fast, around 7.2 seconds I think, so I'd expect the V6 Monaro to be about the same??

CV8 should be close to the SS, mid-high 14's probably.
