    It doesn't come with a turbo stock. A tuner put one on it.

    Yep, though the HSV Clubsport R8 should be competing with the FPV GT, the GTS with the 300C SRT8. Just shows how good the new SS is :o

    If only HSV could lend out some GTS's for BFYB, it definetly would of won.

    I think GM should sell the GTS here too.

    For my money though, i would still buy the F6 typhoon over the HSV Clubsport R8, even if the R8 is 'better'.

    VE GTS > * still though :o

    Motor use vbox's for their times, which tend to give +0.2 to most strip electronic triggers.

    I think this just goes to show how much Holden/HSV reinvented itself in the 21st century. This screenshot is from Motor PCOTY, 1997.
