"That remains to be seen, have you noticed the 500nm of torque on the XR8? If you have a 255 clubby, you will be around 25 off and 5kw down."
As jerry said i was referring to a Stock HSV beating my VX , dont know what you are talking about.
And to my knowledge HSv hadnt finalised power out puts on there VY models till after power figures allthough not exact rough figures were known so they were aware of the power of the ford range. As for the XR8 biting into sales yes it will, all ford models will take some sales away from holden , it will be interesting to see how much though when the facts are reveiled.
