Ford Falcon XR8 V Holden Commdore SS V Redline Track Review With Simple Orange Accent

we Don't Mind Being Literal At Car Advise. So, Here We Really Do Have Blue Versus Red On Your Left The New Xr8 Falcon On Your Right The Commodore SS V Redline And Over Here Wakefield Park A Circuit That Will Help Us Determine Whether It Would Be Ford Or Holden That Will Take Bragging Rights Into The Twilight Years Of The Aussie V8 Sedan This Contest Is Too Big A Deal Not To Extract The Fastest Times Out Of These Two Cars.

So, First Up We're Handing Over To A Pro Racing Car Driver John Boston. So, John You Wrong Track School Here At Wakefield You Know This Circuit On A Back Of Fireproof Racing Glove Now What's Your Instinct Telling You About These Two Cars Well. I'm Up For The Challenge Of Driving These To Start Off With Because We Have These Lovely 2.2 Kilometer Venue When You'll Be Driven On Ten Corners And It's Made Up Of Three Fantastic Straights Where We Need Power, But The Corners Are Certainly A Challenge.

So, Over The Years. I've Learned That The Commodores Have Probably Been A Little Bit Better Than The V8 Ford Falcons The Better Models Probably Been The 6-cylinder Turbo Just Because It's A Little Bit More Responsive With A Bit Lighter Over The Front End Holden Have Done A Lot Of Work With The The VF And. I've Driven Quite A Few Of The Variants Around Here Including The HSV Range Look.

I'm Really Excited To Drive The Ford Because. I Know It's Got This Supercharger Sitting Under There. So, It Has A Huge Amount Of Grunt Compared To The Commodore Okay Well Pressures On We Need You To Be Super Fast Super Consistent Last Guy Let's Do It You Can't Separate These Cars On Price Both Models Cost The Same Fifty Four Thousand Six Ninety In Automatic Form As We Have Them Here Surely Though The First Marked Difference Will Come In The Standstill To 100-kilometer Our Test The Ford Has A Clear On Paper Advantage Having Seized The Supercharged 5-liter V8 Out Off The FPV GT Lesson.

So, It's Looking Quick John Tapping Into The Xr8 Superior Power And Talk 335 Kilowatts At 570 Million Meters It's Sounding Good To Commodore SS V Redline Next The Holden Opts For Capacity Over Force Induction With A 6 Liter V8 Producing 260 Kilowatts And 570 Newton Meters The SS Is Expected Sometime In Late 2015 To Adopt The 6.2 Liter V8 From Its American Cousin Chevy SS, But For Now It's Lower Outputs Integrating It It Appears Visibly Slower, But By How Much We'll Reveal Or Later Now It's Time To Test Brakes Traction And Chassis Balance With Hot Laps The Nota 100 Runs Suggest That The Commodore SS Will Have To Make Up Ground Through White Fields Tank Corners And The Big Holden Is Looking In Its Element Here As It Takes On The Challenging Twisting Section Of Terms Three Through To Nine The SS Looks Super Bleep Oiz Through The Bends And Is A Picture Of Stability Under Heavy Braking Go Certainly Not Holding Back Here Power Isn't Everything At A Circuit Lightweight Field. So, The XR 8 Will Have Its Work Cut Out To Perform Better Than Ford V8 Falcons Of More Recent Memory Ford Has Given The XR 8 Its Best Shot Though Remember Underneath Are The Mechanicals Of The GTR Spec. So, It Should Be A Home On The Track, But Here We Go Into That Crucial Series Of Uphill And Downhill Corners The Ford Is Turning In With More Conviction And Previous Xr8 Like John Looks Like He's Having To Work A Bit Harder Banking Is Eager To Step Out As John Tries To Get All Of The XR 8 Supercharged Power To The Ground John Is No Doubt Grateful For The Front Brembo Brakes Also The Red Line Before Doesn't Look As Nutrient Balanced As The SSV There's More Body Roll And The Xr8 Looks Less Fluid When Transferring Weight During Those Directional Changes John Has Done Three Flying Laps In Each Car And We Can Tell You They Were All Remarkably Consistent, But What Was The Outcome Okay John We Are Probably Dying To Know The Times As Much As Everyone Else Out There Nor To 100 Xr8 Five Point Four Seconds It's Worth Ssv Six Point Four.

I'm Involved Second Off So. I'm Probably Thinking X All Right It's Got It Around The Lap Time This Feels Fast On The Track There's No Doubt About That Well One Minute Eleven Point Five For The Xr8 Around Wakefield Ssv One Minute Eleven Point Two Well Three Tenths Quicker Which Is Pretty Surprising A Powder To Fill Data. So, The Commodore Doesn't Feel That Fast, But It Is Fast In The Exile Rate And They Are Two Extremely Different Vehicles To Drive Out The Track This Has.

So, Much Power, But This Has Superb Turning Grip And Also A Mid Corner Grip So. I'm Actually. I'm Not Surprised Ten Corners Around Here A Lot Of Time To Be Gained And A Lot Of Times Even Kilometers Absolutely.

So, Look. I've Got To Give Them Both Some Credit Because Any Vehicle To Do A Levin Second Or A 111 Lap Around Wakefield Park Is Very Impressive Yeah Pretty Impressive As Was He Driving John Thank You Very Much Indeed For Today Well Today Was Really About Cold Objective Assessment Of These Cars, But You Probably Also Want To Know What They Like To Drive On The Road And To Own Well That Sounds Like A Part Too You.
