NOT IMPRESSED

Ross Grant, via email

I really wanted to be a part of Australian motoring history, so I ordered a Holden SS-V Redline and after much investigation into upgrades, contacted Walkinshaw who was more than happy to arrange a test drive of their W407 decked-out SS Redline. that a 100kW-plus increase in power would slash more than 0.1sec off its 100km/h run, which you tested in your January 2017 edition. No wonder they guarantee the drivetrain as it seems to me it is just a $10,000 hotdog to make it sound better.

Now Iím no MOTOR-head, but I expected that a 100kW-plus increase in power would slash more than 0.1sec off its 100km/h run, which you tested in your January 2017 edition. No wonder they guarantee the drivetrain as it seems to me it is just a $10,000 hotdog to make it sound better.

The Walkinshaw W407 kit does sound extremely angry, but itís true that by the seat of the pants or the stopwatch it doesnít feel much faster than the standard car.
