I love it, cant wait to see it today.
Long live the mighty GT!


The poor old clubbie is in for a kick in the pants!

The GTHO when it comes will have the monster guts to whoop the GTS and GTO. I can understand there launch patern now, very progressive and slow as they rebrand FPV along with the new model range.

Well done ladies and gents.

in my opinion why the power is 290kw, they need more power adjustments to the upcoming vehicles, for example the GTHO and the XR6 turbo, dont be worried, this is a fantastic start to the range.

Well, let the controversy begin.

Already the media are saying 'it doen't match the 300kw from HSV's GTS', but as usual, they're not comparing apples to apples, as it absolutely flogs the 260kw of it's direct competitor - the Clubsport. to media for this furphy already!

And look at that torque - 520Nm at 5500rpm!

If usual Tickford/FPV practice applied, it will also handle a lot better than the Clubbie, as the Falcon is a better base platform to start from than the Commodore (though I'm sure SMH/AGE etc will award the win there to their car making arm, HSV).

And the exhaust note is bound to be GLORIOUS if the Falcon Ute ad is anything to go from, as the Boss290 is a better breathing Boss260!

David Flint also basically confirms GTHO is coming down the track, and that, as the true GTS competitor, is bound to have more power (and my personal opinion is that it won't appear until they get some weight back out of the Barra shell maybe for BA series II).

The styling is understated, but I like it, and I'm sure while the green is nice, that it's not the most flattering colour in the range (and I'm not sure if it's that smart to use a green shade to debut the car when that gives people another reason to say they're aping HSV?).

1st quarter of next year is going to be very interesting - GT vs Clubsport - let the games truely begin.

I can't really tell the difference except for the rear wing and side skirts and wheels...

Oh... and maybe the colours they will come in... but to be honest...
A bit of a dissappointment...
