    Managed to get the missus to agree as it has 4 doors

    I know they are meant to go like stink, hence the interest, but I am assuming with it being V8 it is older technology, so shouldn;t have problems getting it serviced etc ??

    You need to talk to some of the Oz boys - They should have some of the lowdown on engine and problems.

    Just checked out one of the forums.

    Heavy beast by the looks of things, but .......

    0-60 mph: 5.1 sec
    Quarter Mile: 13.3 sec @ 114 mph
    Top Speed: 161 mph



    Main problem with them over here is parts apparently, and running costs. You can run them on normal unleaded, but the MPG is pretty poor. The only saving grace is the fact I have to run mine on SUL, at 81p a litre, and normal UL is 76p a litre. Could equal out alittle

    Less than 10 in the country im led to believe.

    Its a chevy block so engine parts are easy to get hold of.

    Very easy to tune to any figure you can afford basicly.
    Cant Think of Anything Funny To Say
