GT Prototype seen

Had the ute serviced today and had a chat with one of the service guys. He has returned from Melbourne after doing a course on servicing the new engines. The group of guys he was with saw the BA GT prototype parked in a shed. All he said was the bodykit is WILD and nothing like we have seen from HSV. The smile on his face said it all!!!
Also saw the BA Forte being detailed. Now that I have seen it in the flesh I'm not hooked. The interior looked the goods. The sales guys are raving about how it drives and the feel of the car. It is going to be a winner.

I have no idea where it originated from, but the latest NZ autocar mag has a sketch of a blue GT which look's like a chopped, dropped and fattened XR. It look's frickin awesome!

Hope the real one looks as good :)

Now I've wet my pants. Now did you look what was trying to hide under the bulging boonet? I knew the body kit had to be different between the XR's and TPV vehicles otherwise you could not tell the difference between them.
