    It definitely is one of the sweetest looking rides I've ever seen, V8 power to boot. Too bad we don't get them here in the states..<!-- Signature -->

    at the time this was the best HSV ever, but the VX GTS was better and the SV300 is better.

    the GTS Coupe will kill it, but the GTO will not be as good with only 255kW.

    and the top speed of the VTII GTS is 265km/h, factory limited

    I disagree. Personally, i prefer the '90 VN Group A, it may only have 215kW, but at that time, having 215kW was a lot.

    Gotta agree. My uncle's got one, and it HONKS. He took it in a rally and was coming close to some Ferrari times around the track. But when the Coupe GTS comes out, THAT will be awesome! By the way, i heard from someone that they were thinking about putting the the 350kw engine that's in the concept ute into a monaro, is this true or a heap of bullshit?
     
  10. Re: Who agrees that this is one of the best HSV's Ever produced!

    I think that the best ever hsv will be the Monaro GTS. But the GTS300 is a beast as well.
     
  11. Re: Who agrees that this is one of the best HSV's Ever produced!

    God knows the weight, but the 350kw falcon xplod concept would come pretty close. <IMG SRC="http://www.supercarforums.com/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    its probably best of a bad bunch, but nothing special atall. Ford's gtho had 294kw and 513nm back in 71 my friends. It's taken Holden 30 years and chev to do that. It wasnt till the introduction of the ls1 did holden beat the times of the r/t e49 charger and xygtho. Wait till next year when ford get the DOHC 5.4L enginef rom the states then we'll see a real v8 powered RWD car with a proper REAR suspension to back it up.

    The HSV VT GTS 300 is the most limited edition and best built of all the recent model HSVs. It feature 300Kw and 500Nm of torue, and can do the 100Km/h in just 5.3 seconds, and the quarter in the 14s. Not bad for a car that weighs over 1700Kgs, and it handles pretty awesome and stops unbelievably too. Its the greatest thing to ever come out of Australai, period, and it can take the fight right up to the Euro cars.

    to me it looks like a 300IS or a 300IS looks like it what came out first?<!-- Signature -->

    Holden man this car did mid 13s not 14s.
     
  16. Re: Who agrees that this is one of the best HSV's Ever produced!

    I agree about for and the 5.4. I have nothing relly against the HSV in terms of looks, i just hate the rear end coz it's too fat&rounded looking. It also has a crook gearbox. The interior is also not what I would call tasteful, with bright red seats and multicoloured dash. Rear suspension is also not the best. And i don't mean to start a argument over this, but I saw the monaro at the Motor show, and to tell you the truth it was exactly what I expected...a 2 door commodore. I see nothing special about a commodore with 2 doors. I could get a toyota avalon and turn it into a coupe, but u think it would make it look any more mean? Besides, 300kw is a lot, but when you consider that they got it out of near 6 litres, that's not tooo amazing an achievement. To tell you the truth, i am a ford fan, but the only holden's I have ever liked are the old monaro, and the new vtII HSV's. If you ask me, the introduction of the new monaro is going to bring shame to the name of both. The monaro was a true muscle car. Although it originatd from a 4 door, when seen in 2dr monaro form it looked like it was always meant to be that way. The new monaro does not. It looks like some guy has bought a commodore, and done a cheap aftermarket coupe converson. I alaways liked ford, but always had respect for holden. Until the day the decided to use a chev engine. Why? Because their own engines werent near good enough to take on fords 30 yr old windsor, which is still managing to keep up happily. True, you can say Holden and Chevrolet are both part of GM. But what if for ripped in a downtuned version of Aston Martin's V12 into their falcon? They won't, because they don't need any others to hold their hands. The Gen3 V8 is proud in a chev, out of place in a commodore. I don't intend any offence by this, this is just how i feel about the all of this.

    Windsor is 40 years old now muzzy66. I agree about the monaro, just aplain 2 door commonwhore with a fat rear arse. I never really liked the monaro, the hq GTS lookd okay but that was about it. They shouldnt basw the monaro on the commodre, if they wanted to do a monaro just make a retro version. Don't really care as I'm not a holden fan but I did like the odd torana XU1-GTR and A9X were probably the best.

    Well mate trie this on for size the falcon 300kw same kw's as this holden does 0-60 in 4.6 and 1/4mile in 12.0 thats .5 faster then the holden in both catergies<!-- Signature -->
     
  19. Re: Who agrees that this is one of the best HSV's Ever produced!

    what about corsa bringing out the new 330kw version of the monaro, now that thing will fly, i think its gonna cost about $120000 dollars aus though, still gimmie gimmie<!-- Signature -->
     
  20. Re: Who agrees that this is one of the best HSV's Ever produced!

    1) The Walkinshaw is tied with the VN SS Grp A as the BEST HSV's ever produced.
    2)The head of the Aussie design team for the GTS Coupe has an exact copy of the 6.2ltr concept Ute V8 in his own CV8 Monaro
    3) All fords are SH*T
    4) The top speed of the GTS 300 is in fact 282km/h. That speed was achieved by a guy in England who got hold of their first HSV GTS 300 import and took it to Germany and the Autobahn's. This is the same car that Motor Magazine tested at the Nurburgring against the M5 and the E55.
    5) All Fords are SH*T<!-- Signature -->
     
  21. Re: Who agrees that this is one of the best HSV's Ever produced!

    this is a great car. but lookin foward to seeing how the 350 kw malloo hauls. the coupe is 0.2 sec quicker than the sedan to 100<!-- Signature -->
     
  22. Re: Who agrees that this is one of the best HSV's Ever produced!

    Thats bullshit about the limiter. Motor tested it at that speed on the autobahn's and if you read the article it said it happily hit the limiter at 265km. So considering you didn't even get the top speed right im going to disregard your post
     
  23. Re: Who agrees that this is one of the best HSV's Ever produced!

    Yep the HSV has a speed limiter at 160mp/h or 266km/h.<!-- Signature -->
     
  24. Re: Who agrees that this is one of the best HSV's Ever produced!

    this thing dont have a limiter
     
  25. Re: Who agrees that this is one of the best HSV's Ever produced!

    It doesnt have a limiter, several top speed tests have been done on them and they all go over 266kph. The wheels year book clocks the gts at 271kph and its an auto
