190Kw, a standard falcon makes 182Kw, the new Holden V6 is estimated to make 180-190Kw.. Get real. Even magna come with 180Kw and a supercharged camry with about 180Kw is in the works as well.
It won't work, Ford and holden would have problems meeting 100% of demand with just locally made 6's. It would end the industry.
Yet european cars like a 5 series come with 170+, and mercs come with over 400Kw are completely ok. Nah, won't happen. There maybe performance targets or something, but not a blanket ban.
A WRX has ~160kw, a 200 sx has a~140kw and they have plenty of accidents are in some of the highest insurance brakets. why not make the limit 130 kw...
Governments are stupid, but not that stupid. The automotive industry is Australias only major manufactured goods for export. THE ONLY ONE. Can't see them risking it, esp now they are signing export tarrif targets and putting more money into auto projects like mitsubishi, holdens new engine plant etc.. Billions of dollars would be lost extremely quickly.
