What vehicle option?

My dad is looking to upgrade his company car and is thinking of either XR6 NA or XT 5spd V8, with sports suspension and 17inch alloys, opviously the V8 would go harder, but does the XR6 have anything apart from a body kit that would sway him that way? Also, which motor do you think would have more tuning potential? any comments would be appreciated.

The V8 would probarly have more potiential, but the XR6 would look much better.
