    Slower than an auto one aren’t they?

    Why is this even discussed...
    Is any current SS owner really even considering KIA down the track ?!
    Sure as hell I am not...

    Just a pointless thread to attract trolls really. We could all buy a Hyabusa or as I've said before, work the **** out of a 2 stroke dirt bike that would eat them both. The comparison is just as pointless.

    Yeah I might, will take a pretty big change for me to be able to self-justify the cost of a 540i or E400; and they don’t come in manual either.

    Time for an antihistamine I think.

    That Kia is slick and as I've said before, I don't mind the look of it. I find the comparison pointless though. The Swinger is quicker to 100 and over the 1/4mile than a VF2 SS. Great. The SS is also quicker than the in video, but it s time was beaten by the Kia.
    We drive our cars in so many different ways, environments, applications, up hills, down twisty mountains, through school zones on holidays towing the boat etc. We don't do 0-100 blasts or 1/4 mile squirts very often. So why focus on 1 test result? Because, there is no correlation between that result, and how well the car performs in the real world.
    It may be an awesome car. Or it may be a one trick pony. Time will tell.

    FTW and where we at pouring 40 for ol Commie. Pass mike to K-Jong-Un, gonna rap next line fo' me...
    On the special setup traction control for AWD overboost launching... reminds me of an 86 pulled in front just as slowing down from 80 kph to the lights at Raymond Terrace. Rude, brash. Had a sprintex, canons and lowered, rims and stickers about computers or something, thought great you little mofo not just gonna shut you down gonna run over little matchbox ass too.
    Sure enough on green it slid bit left then right apparently trying hard to impress, let it go for a bit then planted it, flashed him over and zoomed past about twice his speed at 3-4000 RPM. Yeah nah 0-100 is for kids, relax set the rabbit free then chomp it’s arse. :cool:

    Can I summarise this thread:
    - Just one test
    - The Kia is a good car but they are very different cars.
    - We drive our cars more than just over the quarter mile
    - More importantly - the sound difference between the two. Kia is an artificial sound while the Redline is real. The Kia in comparison sounded like a sick cat.

    I’ve been around too long to ever get overly hung up on needing to own the quickest car as I’ll always end up disappointed when the next model comes out or another competing manufacturer ups the ante by few more kilowatts.

    Therefore I look towards other features in cars that appeal to me like having plenty of modern tech to do with safety, performance and entertainment which I’m sure the Stinger would have in spades and one of the first and most important boxes that must be ticked is a V8 nestled in the nose as that is a major turn on for an old school performance freak like me.

    The same goes when I mod a car, even though I know forced induction is usually more efficient and quicker the old school part of me still can’t turn away from the mechanical sound show and drama of an N/A cammed car.

    So no matter how fast the Stinger may be and I’m sure if it becomes popular it will only get faster with subsequent models, it will never be high on my list as it doesn’t tick a box that is important to me.

    Nice video. They even short fueled the Commodore to stop people using that as an excuse to it's performance shortfall.

    Wow that Stinger really smacked that Commodore's bum.

    The Commodore time doesn't surprise me, in stock form they've always been slow to 100.

    What I got from this is that, after unscientific testing that makes zero allowances for human driver reaction times (no staging lights/cameras/triggered timing) ..

    One has an auto transmission that changes at slightly lower revs, traction control that can be completely disabled, a better soundtrack, and more backseat room.
    The other has an auto transmission with launch control, traction control that can't be completely disabled, is probably slightly lighter as it brakes in 1 meter less distance from 100+ kph, and has two very-expensive-to-repair turbochargers.

    I know which one I think would be more likely to do 250,000 km on Australian roads without an engine rebuild.

    p.s. 5:56 for a shot of several real plastic shitboxes
