    Ford's do have a limiter
     
  4. Re: HSV vs. XR8

    But there's no way the xr8 is as fast as this hsv, in any way.
     
  5. Re: HSV vs. XR8

    No Ford has ever gone over 250km/h I don't think, maybe the GTHO but other than that nothing, and Fords don't have limiters anymore, well the manuals don't anyway, not sure about the autos.

    The AU XR8 would be better compared to an SS, and they would be a lot closer than XR8 and HSV
     
  7. Re: HSV vs. XR8

    I agree the XR8 is better than the SS but the XR8 would come pretty close together but i think the HSV would beat the XR8 by a short way that's my opinion.
     
  8. Re: HSV vs. XR8

    wait till the BA XR8, i agree with the AUIII and VXII, i think SS and XR8 were overall very similar, but the BA will step up with it's new power to go with the 260kW HSVs

    no the 255kw hsv's, the xr8 can smoke pretty much any holden now(excluding ones which cost more thant $35 grand(GTO GTS) more) as of its lightweight design and large amounts of power. i believe it can beat the clubsport.

    The XR8 will be lucky if it can beat a Clubbie, let alone an SS.
    Its simple:

    1. SS is quicker than Clubbie
    2. Clubbie has same power but lighter than XR8 so its safe to assume the Clubbie is going to be quicker.
     
  12. Re: HSV vs. XR8

    Just because the XR8 is getting more power doesnt mean you take it up to the next level to compare with Clubsports.

    xr8 hands down, bro

    xr8 hands down, bro
     
  15. Re: HSV vs. XR8

    XR8 get's whooped by the XR6 Turbo. They should be comparing the XR6 Turbo to the SS.
     
  16. Re: HSV vs. XR8

    in car magazines generally the cars get compared by price, not power.

    thats why the new FPV GT / GT-P is compared to the Clubsport R8 because their price is similar.

    However the GT is slower than the clubsport but has a softer ride which is probably the better alternative.

    if FPV had a 90,000 car then it would be compared to the HSV GTS for example.

    However car mags also do Power comparisons but most i've seen were price.
