    I was reading today in a local magazine, they apparently have the scoop Holden are currently undergoing testing, of 520 horsepower, 427 VE GTS'. And will be expected to release them sometime in 2008. Due to the high price (50-60k USD expected) exporting to America will be of high priority. So that they can be profitable.

    The "garden variety" 412 horsepower LS2 version does 0-62mph in 4.9 Seconds, so i can only imagine what the 520 horsepower version will perform line.

    The only way America will be getting the future HSV and Holden releases is if the Pontiac G8 sells well when it hits stateside early next year.

    So buy up :o

    don't see why it would, no current Holden has DOD and the LS7 isn't equipped with DOD technology.

    The G8 MAY have DOD, because the L76 was designed with it in mind.

    Wheels reckon they have spy pics of them in testing. I am really disappointed the GTS has the same power output as the clubsport.
