VX II Sedan 4dr Auto 4sp 3.8S

VT II Sedan 4dr Auto 4sp 3.8S

Kerb Weight 1644kg

Power 180kW @ 5000rpm

VIC legal limits P platers to 125kw per tonne

so

power(kW)/weight(Kg) * capacity(litres) = kW per tonne

therefor

180/1644 * 1000 = 109.5 kW per tonne.

Totally legal, being there has been no mods done to the engine :thumbsup:

they are legal to drive, they are 180kw stock, and they are pretty good on fuel, depending on how you drive
