I'm pretty impressed by the new VF range, especially the HSV styling. They're smart by having their top of the line car with over 600hp too!
I'm not too sure why but every where I read everyone absolutely hates the styling and bags out HSV reminiscing about when a walkinshaw was perfect (Yet didnt sell well).

I can't wait to see some of these out on the road!

Rims and Brakes look aggressive. The rest looks like a hotted up camry euro edition lol. I personally would never buy one, I jumped off the HSV bandwagon after the VE. Everything after the VE was crap imho. Too euro looking.
But thats ones opinion.

Wheels/Brakes/Engine are all nice.

Styling, for me, looks way to... ew.

VE GTS was way nicer looking imo. Rear of this looks like a VW and the front is just bleh.

Priced to be UNDER 100k, however no doubt extra options would take it over that. Personally think the best part of the car is the motor, and the extra features it comes with (push button start, keyless entry, handbrake etc...)-all these in a ve would be perfect.

I would have thought that most people on here would dislike the electric handbrake because you can't have as much fun with it. What are the advantages of it?

Do you still need to have the key in the ignition to make the engine start with the button?

100k is a lot of money but what other 600hp+ new cars are available in that price range.

Personally I don't mind the styling, will be good to see it in a variety of colours.

Its like saying, buy a VL, slap a 35r on it and have a few bucks left over.

There isn't a car on the market at the moment in that price range with the features this car has.

It is also going to have carbon brakes at some stage as well.

Quite possibly the ugliest rear I've ever seen. Ever.



Once I saw the rear, everything else was now null and void.

The back end is ugly as, no amount of getting used to it will change that.

The front looks good, but I think the bottom half looks a but tacky, perhaps a bit over-styled

Having said that I would never ever ever buy one.
