    HSV GTS / Vauxhall VRX8 GTS

    So I have never paid any attention to our home grown products, which I'm ashamed to admit that it's due to my prejudice and the perception of these cars. But recently two of my interstate friends just bought a HSV GTS and one has even has an order of the yet to be announced ute version of the HSV GTS. That got me started thinking about this car. 430kw and 750nm of torque from the Camaro ZL1, with massive AP racing brakes and magnetic ride control suspension, what is there not to like? Reviews have been great, not just in Australia but also the UK where it's sold as a a Vauxhall. The best part is that the car cost $92k here, when a M5 is $230k and a E63 is $250k. What do you guys think? Here is a review from the UK as an example.  http://www.carmagazine.co.uk/Drives/Search-Results/First-drives/Vauxhall-VXR8-GTS-2014-CAR-Review/

    Here is an interesting drag video with a E63S.

    WAY I think with the closure of locally made cars these could be a good investment.  I'm surprised the US market has not jumped on our Utes. They would love them!!!

    I can't imagine driving a ute, otherwise I would have jumped at it!
