Vixen GT Pics

Well,

Finally took ownership of my Vixen GT. Was a bit worried about what the colour would turn out like, but my worries were groundless, Vixen is one awesome colour.

I've also posted a pic of the SS cold air induction my dealer fitted.

As she has only 550 km on the clock will have to wait a little before dyno.

My first impressions of this machine??..........Bloody FANTASTIC!!

Am so glad to have off loaded the Turbo for this car.

In regards to the alloy air deflectors i agree paint them black,i had mine done and it really blends in you can't notice them.
Cheers John

Sweet ride mate.

How long did you have the XR6-T for & what made you decide to sell it?

Re: Vixen GT Pics

Thanks guys,

Yeah, I will be getting the deflectors painted black ASAP, that was my first impression when I picked the car up.

I had the XR6T 6 months and although it was a good car, one decent test drive of a GT-P had us convinced that this was a far superior car in every aspect (except quick take off) than the T. Have no regrets of unloading the T at all!.

Vixen is more orange than Venom. There is a guy in town who has a Venom GT, will try and get some pics of both cars together so you can se the difference.

Re: Vixen GT Pics

You can see the tinge of Orange in it, compared to Venom,look's good all the same,it would be good to see Vixen next to Venom.
