If they flipped the image then they would have had to reflip the GT badge on the side.

Um no as the gs had a limited run of 250s sedan and like 75 utes if I am correct.

Is the XR8 going to remain or is it still facing extinction?. Looks like the only way to get into a V8 will be if it is an FPV.

Further scuttlebutt is that this particular supercharged FPV will be released on 20" rims.

Old News.... and FYI these cars are just a glorified XR8. I have seen these in person. no GS badges just sticker decal crap. interior looks stock standard xr8, nothing special...

Yeah the GS, is just a cheap way to get a GT engine (it's detuned somewhat) without spending GT dollars. But you also miss out on the brakes, interior, body kit, better suspension and more.

I guess it'll suit people who don't want the more stand out GT image, but want more than a XR8.

(but the price point, puts it close enough to a GT, you'd have to really hate the look of the GT to not pony up the extra few grand)

Original xw-xb gs was also a sticker job with no badges either iirc. Only interior diference was a different instrument cluster.

Didn't the XB GS's get the twin headlights and the bonnet flutes or was that just the XC.?

from another forum, someone who works in the industry

Quote:
There's been no mention of it around here? How odd. :)

Motoring magazines are claiming that power output should be somewhere above the GTS' 325kW. Yoiks. They're also claiming that there's going to be two derrivatives. HO, anyone?

Anyway, would love to talk more about it. But I can't. :D
