HSV quotes a 13.3 for the GTS (a 13.4 was done by motor in Germany). Tickford quotes a 14.0 - do you think Wheels will be able to match/better that on past performance?

They should do something about that streering wheel, it looks like crap.
Is that from the new wheels mag?

Guys, the T3 is a screamer, and power figures and stats don't tell the whole story about Tickfords beast, but i reckon the T3 wouldn't muscle the 300kw GTS. I'd be close but wouldn't beat it.
I'd give the Clubsport a good caining but we need the future GT to tackle the GTS.

How much is that price in US dollars? Anyone know? I really wish we had some nicer cars here. I could go for a Right hand drive.

Is it English? Does it moo?
