It's a shame and a benefit in some ways actually. It just shits me Holden hasn't got a Turbo model similar to the XR6T from Ford.

Mabye HSV's range might include a turbo variant...?

Shame Holden didn't do it for the SV6, it'd would've been the XR6T killer. Fresh design, more advanced tech and if they're even smarter, they'd have a way more better induction system over the XR6T.

The benefit here I suppose is the choice of cars is still good if your the aftermarket type. Omega, SV6, SS or SS-V turboed or S/C'ed is at your disposal and over time, better kits will be released giving more choice.

Still, I would've preferred an SV6T dammit! :ranting:

its got a fair bit to do with cost and it being a V6.... cant really just have one turbo hanging off one side and not the other, i agree that there should be a supercharged version released later on in the series 2 and see how that performs.....ford really do ahve the upper hand on the 6 cylinder performance market as it is alot easier and cheaper to turbo a inline 6......

Holden should have been offering the SS in s/c form aswell as the V8, why should the only way to own the benchmark Holden vehicle be through means of a V8!? Well, I guess the way petrol prices are going, it makes sense really.

In order to make fun of the appropriate people, yes.

Haha, fair call! Would be interesting to see what Holden does in the future. I think there would be reasonable demand for a supercharged SV6. Also, remember that Torana concept? that had a twin turbo wacked on. However for some funny reason, I cant see Holden doing either a turbo or supercharged V6 in the near future.
