Yep its a great issue, I got mine today. Was good I had all day to read it becasue I had th day off work for the Geelong cup.
I am very pleased with the outcome of the 4 comparisons between the falcopn and Commodore. Don't know if comparing the lighter supercharged commodore S against the stock 182 engine is fair, although the Xr6 still makes more naturally aspirated herbs than the blown buick 6.
Hate to say it but I LOVE that HRT 427 concept. That huge V8 with ridiculous amounts of torque, those seats. Definately one Holden I would drive without even considering. $220Grand? Id rather have a Porsche GT3 for the same price, or even a dodge Viper, Corvette Z06, TVR Tuscan R, BMW M3 CSL when it comes out, or even a Nissan skyline R-34 GTR VspecII N1.
