geez, after seeing that, I have really changed my mind on a pursuit. Sure you get a heap of extra cool stuff on the pursuit, but I'd rather buy an XR8, and spend the difference on personallising it.

geez that seems a little quick....especially since they are going 0-100 quicker (XR8) and same as (persuit) their sedan coutnerparts.....but they weigh more...doesnt make sense. especially for a 1900kg ute(persuit)

Gearing on utes is the same as the sedans. I have seen a stock XR8 ute run a 14.3 at Calder so them times seem a little slow. Pursuit could probably run a 14 flat.
