727ci V8 HSV vs Twin Turbo Lamborghini Gallardo - Powercruise 37
At Powercruise 37 at Queensland Raceway, Gup bought out his newly built 727ci V8 HSV for a little fun in the off-street racing practice. It's not finished yet, but with the biggest capacity engine in any street car we know of in Australia, it certainly gets up and moves. He decided to line up Graham's twin-turbo Lamborghini Gallardo. It runs around 6psi of Boost on a stock engine with a yet to be sorted E-gear, but it's no slouch.
Graham got the jump, but Gup was able to reel him in. At the finish line it was a draw, but past it, the HSV nosed in front.

727 Cubic Inches and Australian Tire Smoke! - Roadkill Episode 10
On this episode of Roadkill, there's endless burnouts and powerskids as David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD magazine are on the loose in Australia with 727ci of Sonny Leonard hemi-headed madness. The massive big-block makes 1,275 horsepower between the fenders of a 2006 Holden HSV VE Clubsport R8. In American, that's like a Pontiac G8. This display of overkill is the product of "Gup," the promoter of the Powercruise series of events in Australia, New Zealand, and Minnesota (USA) where tire smoke is the rule. On the show, you'll see tire fire from Gup's infamous "Elvis" '74 Holden HQ, from his 727ci Clubbie, from a 1,500ci diesel semi truck, and from Downunder's most throttle-happy petrolheads on both coasts. The miracle is that Freiburger and Finnegan aren't still in an Aussie jail. Of course, that might have been less punishing than the 30-hour flight home.
