Smile Barra GT sighted

I work in a bottle shop in a shopping complex, while i was working yesterday a blue barra falcon with black tape at the front and rear drove into the car park. I saw that it had a big bonnet bulge so i assumed that the car was a XR8. the driver came in and bought some beer so i asked him if it was an XR8, he said that it was actually a GT minus the body kit. From what i could see it appeared that it has 18 or 19 inch 5 spoke wheels, similar to the ones pictured in the drawings on the fpv website. It looked awesome even without the body kit on it, so i cant wait till we see the real thing.

Why would they bother with the black tape, since everyone has seen the XR kit that you say it was supporting!

Damn u should have asked what output it was!! All good! Can't Wait for Motor Show pictures/specs!

I did ask what the output was, he wouldnt tell me though. I asked him if it had more power than the HSV GTS and he said he couldnt tell me although he said that it went FASTER and handled better than any HSV GTS. In my books this means that it would have to have more power than the GTS as the BA weighs more than the VX-VY. I think it was his way of telling me without telling me if you know what i mean.
