First, we will start with the best and the most kick-ass Australian motorcar ever produced. Made in 1971, this car comes it a 351 Cleveland V8 (5.8L) and an air intake caleld a "shaker" that sticks out of the bonnet on the Holley carby. In it's day it was known to be the fastest 4-door car ever produced. It is about 400+ hp stock and more torque than bubba in jail-showers could force. This people, was the XY GT.more...
There was also one called the XY GTHO Phase 3 which came with all the racing options and a 780 cfm Holley and this kicked ass in bathurst and any tracks you thew at it. All you aussie biatches stop boning the Holden Monaros and Commodores and get some taste.
There was also a Phase 4, but due to governemtn restrictions only 4 were produced. The XA GTHO Phase 4 would cost about $160,000 Australian or so now.
There was also previous phases known as the XW GTHO Phase 2 in 1970 which also had a 351 Clevo (350 hp) and similar stats, and the XT GTHO Phase 1 in 1969 with a 302 motor. The first 200 has Windsors and the last 50 had 351 (300 hp)Clevelands.
The 2003-2006 BA GT-P and BF GT-P (2006+) coming up will shit on any HSV. It's torque it way to much for any Holden dickhead to understand with just as much HP(KW).
Hmm lets see, Falcon GT = 5.4L V8 Quad Cam, 32 valve and plenty of headroom for bor(e)ing vs a Holden 5.7L V8 PUSHROD engine....Commodres gonna become End Of Line soon you Holden whores! How are they good??
an extremely over-rated car, out of japan, made by subaru, the full name is a Subaru Impreza WRX, fitted with a crappy 4-pot 2 litre or 2.5 litre "boxer" motor. Engine has to be removed just to change the spark plugs.
Will not beat an old monaro GTS 350/SLR 5000/ford XY GT-HO or any hi-po V8 these days as well. Usually seen ridiculously cosmetically modified by some ethnic group (lebs, greeks etc.)
Driven one before, nothing special, not very exciting.
drive a LJ torana with a worked 350 chev and that will get the blood pumping!!!
350V8 - Hey mate lets race
WRX - Ok mate, ive got a HKS turbo mate
350V8 - Good for you, Ive got 5.7litres and 8 cylinders, suck on that
WRX - At least i have technology
350V8 - fuck technology - lets go (engine roars, torrie takes off)
WRX - where da fuck did he go, shit hes already on his way back down the exit road to the pits (this is at a dragstrip btw)
A car with a large V8 and steel bumpers made before 1976.
A perfect example is the Falcon GT.
Falcon GT was a Bathurst winner and now the most sought after Aussie Muscle car ever.
They asking price of a XY HO Phase 3 GT equals the the combined value of all T series falcons combined.
FYI a T series is a late model Australian Falcon V8 with a body kit...Not a GT or a muscle car Per Se.
