Thumbs up New Wheels magazine

I got my copy of the new Wheels mag and it has a HSV XU6 , Mitsubishi Ralliart Magna and XR6 VCT comparo.
The Magna wins with the Ford in 2nd and the poor old Holden comes in last place......oh what a shame :s6:
There's a fantastic pic of the XR6 doing a burnout on page 69.
There's an article on the AV with testing pics in Sweden and the rumour is that it will be exported there.

well for starters there is an ad for the pursuit ute. "KING OF THE LOAD"

On Av there are 4 pictures that don't show much more than has already been seen.
The cars have been spotted in Sweden. The suspect that there may still be an export chance but more likely the cars are there under the control of Bosch for testing of electronic contraptions.

What were the 0-100 and 1/4 mile times for the supposed XR8 killer (Ralliart Magna)?
