V8 Supercar - The Next generation???

Well guys

Sorry this has taken a while to get posted but i just wanted to do some follow up and confirmation before letting the news out!

While I was in QLD I went to guided tour of a famous workshop. I was no less than amazing to see all the equipment they have there. . As I was walking around I spotted out the corner of my eye, something through an open door...What I saw is something i'm sure I shouldnt have seen...from the pictures, and personal encoutners, an AV mule, all I can say is that this car was an AV done up in what could only be described as V8 Supercar gear (ie: spoilers and such), there was no mistaking it was a test car for said org. And to add something even more special to this is the fact that there were 2 cars, and one of them was a 2 door...thats right...a 2 door Barra supercar.

Now im not sure whats in plan for the series., but i found this to be very intersting, whats is in store???

Sorry no pics!

This is great news. I canít wait for the Sydney Motor Show. I am sure they will be on display there. It will blow Holden away.
