Ford Falcon XR8 v Holden Commdore SS V Redline Track Review
http://www.caradvice.com.au/326189/?yt_desc - Read the article here. In the great Australian V8 war, the Holden Commodore SS in recent years has been consistently victorious. Not only has it defeated the Ford Falcon on the motorsport battlefield, it has also wounded its arch enemy both on the road and in the showroom. The Blue Oval, however, is going back on the offensive with a new weapon: the first Ford Falcon XR8 since 2010. The Ford FG X Falcon XR8 and Holden Commodore SS V Redline cost the same $54,690 in automatic form as we have them here, but the eight-cylinder approach under the bonnet is different. Ford has the on-paper advantage. The XR8 has seized the supercharged 5.0-litre V8 out of the GT that’s no longer on sale, giving it 335kW and 570Nm. The Holden opts for capacity over forced induction, with a 6.0-litre V8 producing 260kW and 517Nm.
Wild Ford XR6 turbo!
Welcome back to the track Karman. After a 4 year absense the Ford XR6 turbo awoke first pass off the trailer. The Falcon is still a full weight car with electric glass and factory interior. Quickest pass for the day was an easy 9.0 at 151mph. The 4L turbo six is now using E85 fuel. http://www.facebook.com/fullBoostcomau http://www.youtube.com/user/fullBoostcomau http://www.fullBoost.com.au
