HSV Boys Testing a GT

From where I sit I see that HSV guys testing all the HSV cars from my office window.....this morning I had a look as the V8 sound was different to the ussual.....and to my surprise it was a GT.....its now done 4 laps.


I guess the HSV boys are looking to how to make their cars as good as a GT

Re: HSV Boys Testing a GT

you'd think its pretty common for both FPV and HSV to "assess" the competition though

Re: HSV Boys Testing a GT

I would think its pretty normal to evaluate the opposition. It would be interesting to know if it was a swappy deal or if HSV bought it.

It was just a standard light silver one with no stripes

One thing I must say is that when they opened up the GT down that side street in Clayton it sounded way gruntier than the chevy power plants

Re: HSV Boys Testing a GT

as others have said, both Ford and Holden would be stupid not to test each others and other manufactuers products. I remember being in Geelong last year and seeing a Caddy at one of the Ford buildings.
