XR8's are not performance says AutoTrader

Just a slightly weird one . . . I've been cruising through Autotrader.com.au (the auto sub-section of tradingpost.com.au) looking for new cars.
Anyway, the interesting anomaly is that Commodore SS falls under the "Sports and Performance" section, while the XR6/XR8 falls into "Small, Medium, Family & Prestige".

Has the commo been promoted, or the XR's been demoted ?


On a related note, here's a pic of an XR8 that Alto Ford artarmon are advertising...

Oh great, GT stripes on an XR8 and that friggin war paint on the bonnet. All it needs now is a Mugen sticker on the door and a RallyArt sticker on the windscreen.

Well the stripes on the side are ok, as to whether they belong, well that's just buyer preference. Hood looks terrible though. :)

Re: XR8's are not performance says AutoTrader

I saw a blood Orange GT the other day out here. The old guy in it had gotten two black stripes going over the car from front grill to rear bumber, in addiction to the black stripes on the sides. Then it had about 19 inch rims with a polished dish, and a dark gunmetal type centre (almost black. It actually looked really good. Don't think it would in other coloured stripes or car though.
