Both the Ford & Holden design centres are still operating here in Australia.

Says something about both those teams....... Cool

Both produced their finest cars (world class) in the last models imo and then they shut shop and ran..... Huh

Australia was not a leader in automotive technology or automotive manufacturing. Australia was a follower in both aspects.

Followers don't succeed unless they can do it for a lower price.

The traitors were caught up in having BMWs kias and alike which are on the scrap heap in 5yrs and now we have no automotive industry and no good cars to buy unless you buy top end, even those are worthless second hand.

If the yanks were snapping HSVs up for cop cars GMH would not have needed to close down.

The fake claim detector is buzzing.

The bulldust is flowing freely from the Lefties who have not got a clue but just want to make a noise.

You would need a very long hood to fit this monster in the engine bay.

This would be more for drag racing or possibly racing.

Not much use for ordinary cars with so many traffic laws and max 110Kmh speed limit which almost any old car can do now.

Can you just imagine the fuel consumption!!!   2 miles a gallon!!!

At least this would not conk out after 3 laps like the Tesla toy car does when the battery overheats.

But a Tesla would probably beat it over the 1/4 mile drag strip.

BH it is much more exciting to discuss the TOPIC as I have if you care to reread.

BH I feel a circle forming.

Concentrate on the topic.

It is a valid comparison to compare this hi power V12 with the Teslas which do have very fast acceleration for a short distance until the battery overheats.

Actually what capacity is this motor ? It is a HUGE 580 cubic inch (9.5L).

Maybe it is for large trucks or boats. But I think it is petrol so too expensive to run compared to diesel.

The only thing Australian in the HSVs was the GMH logo and the BS. Most of the rest were foreign components.

https://autoweek.com/article/supercars/holden-rolls-out-australias-most-powerful...

Quote:
... Holden Special Vehicles' GTSR W1 will combine the now-familiar (to us as the Chevrolet SS or PPV, from highway medians in the U.S.) Holden Commodore with an LS9 V8 borrowed from the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. In HSV's tune, it'll pump out an eye-watering 636 hp and 601 lb-ft of torque courtesy of an air-to-liquid intercooler, a gen-6 supercharger, stainless-steel headers and a few other tweaks. Putting all that power to the ground will be a Tremec TR-6060 six-speed manual gearbox, and we imagine the sedan will actually get some traction in most instances.
