BA XR8 at motorvation

Did anyone have a look at the BA XR8 at motorvation sat/sun???
You can see why they need the bonnet buldge, that motor is huge!
It was driving around in the supercruise, pretty quiet and the guy driving hardly gave it any shit.
Looked horn!

Yep, saw it too, checked it out in pit lane while waiting for the cruises to start. Spoke to the guys driving it, i think they were from the Tickford Club, not sure though.

All in all, a very nice looking ride, subdued and classy i thought.
That motor is a giant too.
Very quiet, with just a slight 'note' when revved, it would do me just fine.

Holden could lose a few sales with the XR8 i reckon, 260kw for the same price as an SS...well done Ford.

Speaking of Motorvation, i had a great time there, the Supercruises were fantastic, cant wait for next year, its going to be huge!

I was there with the Commodore Car Club of WA, and it was good to see such a high calibre of cars from all manufactures, around the ground, and in the Top 80 Pavilion, especially Rod Hadfield's 55 Chevy. That thing was just plain awesome.

Yes I saw. The XR6T was there as well. I near on begged the Titan guy to start it up, he really wanted to but assured me it could not be started in that area.

I was sad.

and it was good to see such a high calibre of cars from all manufactures
I saw 2 ricer burners, 3 Fords and the rest were Dunnydoors and Holden utes. (That was saturday though, may off been diff Sunday)
