Just a thought, but I was wondering when you were going to do a review on the Motorsport Edition apart from the ‘controlled conditions’ preview earlier this year?

With the end of Aussie cars drawing closer I would love to see a comparison on the Motorsport against the XR8 Sprint – if possible, of course.

We have seen plenty on the HSV GTSR W1, but how about the Aussie Holden V8 going against the Aussie Ford V8?

That is a contest MOTOR would have jumped at the chance to conduct.

However, we suspect due to the strong buyer demand, a press car was never in the pipeline for the Motorsport Edition (as well as Director and Magnum).
