    I'd go a turbo 6 over the V8.. if it looks like this anyway.

    What motor are the VF's coming out with, the 6L or the 6.2L?

    6.2 310KW, the V6's are the same. Maybe the VF S2 will have the new V8 and a T6.

    Are height adjustable belts that important when the seat is height adjustable?
    I applaud the window controls being moved to the door...

    Does that mean the vf ss will be sporting the ls3? Any truth to this or just speculation?

    I doubt it will have the LS3, It would just be the current 6L tweaked to whatever kilowatts they want it to be..... Bring on the LS7 7.0L Supercharged V-8 (820 HP) for the HSV's :)

    I like it a lot, looks nice. Except the steering wheel, go back to material wrap.

    Still wonder my the seats have a 6-pack though.

    There is talk on the HSV forum that HSV were ropable when told the Holden will be using the LS3..so not sure how good the source is but they seem on the mark with a few other things that have occurred.

    The word to the press was that there are no changes to engines over the VE. Second last para of the link below.

    I think your wrong on both counts, if its 6.2 it will be the LS3, and HSV will not be getting a supercharged LS7. The GTS may get the 6.2 supercharged LSA if we are lucky.

    Yeah yeah it looks OK as a family car. Interior does seem impressive.

    However Holden still needs to stop ####ing around and build a designated sports car.

    Maybe a 1300kg 6.2 litr supercharged coupe that handles well and looks something like this.

    Maybe so, but the talk is that due tot he SS going to the US the SS may receive a different engine variant to SS-V. This it to keep inline with requests from US buyers. Is it true? Who knows, we will know when the cars specs are all released from Holden, as of yet I do not think Holden have released any drive line details?

    Saw it in person today at the V8 test day. It actually looks quite good.

    The colour was very bright, I dont see it being a production colour but I guess we will wait and see.

    The interior looked really nice though and the back end really suits the car well, much nicer than the VE back.

    The GTO & G8's both got different V8's to what was in the local Holden models.
