MOTOR November issue preview

MOTOR November issue

Welcome to a sneak peek of what's in the November issue of MOTOR. This month we've had a bit of a facelift to shake things up, but there's no change to the content!

Our cover story this month is our man Morley having a chat with the team behind the creation of the new LS3-powered Holden VF II Commodore SS range.

  • More like 258kWs at the very best, given the way Holden counts kilowatts on the testbench with SAE rating Vs real power! Same for all their cars even the mighty GTS which probably has 365kWs at the flywheel at best. If it wasn't for the massive torque it wouldn't have beaten the GT-F on the strip in the now famous 'Drive' stoush.
