A dad's mate has one of the new holden HSVs, the top of the line one, kitted it out with everything he could find, puts out damn near 700kW, when taking off in first you can feel your insides moving....

But it's still a holden :p

This was in Lyttelton yesterday.....

Nope. He went through a stock gearbox and 2 heavy duty ones and had to get a custom made one similar to the ones used in V8 Super cars to actually take the power it was producing.
