Have just reread the MOTOR magazine PCOTY issue I have come up with a cunning plan.
It involves our nice friends at FPV taking a bog standard XR6, XR6T, XR8 and GT up to Avalon and doing the speed run. The only 'minor' mod would be to remove the speed limiter.
This will settle once and for all the FPV/HSV arguments.
According to MOTOR a CV8 did 270 km/h and a GTS did 276 km/h.
In a controlled environment under Ford engineers and with professional drivers the true figures will be shown.
This has good and bad sides. The bad being that some nutcase will try and duplicate it and smear him/herself all over the road but then they probably will anyway (Darwin's Law)
The good side is that the hypothetical argument ends.
What do you guys think?
