The FG is safer, more fuel efficient, spacious and dare I say it, more practical as a family car than the VE!

And even Holden fans are predicting sub 5 sec sprints to 100 km/h for the XR6T!

Looks alright, hate the interior. I especially hate the driving position. It doesn't look right. Nor do I like the standard family car front. It looks dead set ugly. Especially the XT.

More practical? Dunno...

XR6 Turbo times? Acheivable.

Just depends on the sales, that's all.

Practicallity wise: less thirsty, more spacious and powerful than VE. May also be chaeper! (highly doubtful though...)

XR6T times: easily achievable!

Sales: the maker or braker of not just the Falc, but the big 3! [Falc, Commy and Aurion]

Oh, the rear could've been better in my mind, but it is sufficient to be better than the VE's big boxy bum...

It may pull sub 5sec quaters, but will it be enough to beat the VE on the race track?

So, if a XR6 Turbo can do 5s... Nah, I don't thing FPV can make a car out of the FG range that goes under 5 seconds. No WAY!
The last GT "only" made a 6.41 ET.

Well consider that the new Falcon has 320kW. But it won't have Magnetic Ride Control or most likely the 50/50 weight distribution which will make the GTS faster around the track despite the 13kW penalty

The XR8 wheels remind me marginally of the GTS.
