Very nice machine. I was in a hurry so I didn't get them to start it or show me any more, but I will be back in the next few days with a better camera, the Nokia Phones does it no justice. The twin exhaust on this beast, unlike the Black GT-P, on this machine has no mufflers, so they are really loud. The job is done by a muffler specialist in the area, it costs about $1800 when getting the full exhaust to have them custom the twin pipes. Cam they must have been reading your mind when you wanted to see the strips on a White Car

So close...

Ditch the tacky wheels and badges, the overdone bulge and the lighter blue stripes either side of the big ones, and put some rounder tips on the exhaust - like the Mustang - and you've got a winner in my books!

Would love to see the exhaust from underneath, I'm glad someone's doing it.

I will see what I can do to get some underneath images later in the week when I get a much better camera

Almost, but... The stripes need to go over the upper grille and rear numberplate light assembly as well. Would also prefer to see it without that aftermarket bonnet and badges. Very interested in the exhaust however.

Thanks anyway DGROMS.com, Cheers!

Stripes look ok, exhaust is good an don't mind the badges but the bulge looks firkin shite! Also the wheels look like it came of the front cover HOT 4's mag two years ago. Get somethin new if ya gonna build somethin like that!

Nope i wouldnt touch it. I think it looks stupid. Factory GT-P with stripes is much classier IMO.

That is they gheyest thing I have seen since the MOCK up AU Cobra, I personaly feel a little violated that someone would desicrate such a powerfull image, meaning the XC Cobra, with a ridiculous MOCK up like that. SHAME SHAME SHAME, though the zorst does sound very intriging.

Just my two cent's

Not my thing, Why do people put those ugly old Grp A style rear spoiler's on car's these day's, the original spoiler look's much better(IMO).

I wonder what model car that actually is, with the aftermarket bonnet & body kit, with the fake vents and shaker. Could be an XT… (yes chances are it’s a V8 – very rice if not – and could be XR8)

I saw it at the ford/holden show in syd.
It is a xr8.
I thought it didnt look very good but boy does it sound good.
He has fitted a xr6 cold air system, a herrods exhaust that has been modified and reprogrammed a chip to his specifications.
Was hoping for 300+ kilowatts, ran 350+ on the first night of the show.

Get rid of those stickers,badges,nostrals and maybe even get rid of the rear wing,do this and I think it would look quite mean.
