WK Grange

The new Grange is now on the HSV page, www.hsvgrange.com.au and doesnt look to bad. Power is up to 285kw but also states a 292kw DIN figure so they have more power now than the GT, More importantly torque is up to 510NM with it using the new Heavy duty auto trans. 0-100 claims are 5.81 and the 400m is 13.9s from an 1800kg car, but like most HSV claims I reckon it is a bit optimstic. FPV should really be worried if the clubby has the same power figures when they come out 0-100 in 5.5s should be achievable with this much power.

Re: WK Grange

Still doesn't have the low down torque of the BOSS.

Still the grange is a good excuse for a BOSS 290 Fairlane.

In the Early 70's the Fairlane had near GT spec v8s....

Re: WK Grange

Just like in all HSV add's they have their 0-100 and 0-400m time's but the only truth in these statement's is the final word "CLAIMED"
But it dosnt look to bad, I'm still not sure on the front of the VY it look's to American for me.
