    Whincup on Holden V6 Engine.

    http://www.supercars.com/news/champi.../?sf90947477=1

    Ive been asked not to talk about it, but theres no real secret. I dont think we will get it underway next year, but well have another year of development and get it cracking the year after.

    Funny how that "older" over 35 demographic hasn't changed in 20 years......

    Funny how Jamie happens to be 34, but chooses to reference over 35. lol I think, if they think that the sound wont bother their younger audience they are kidding themselves. Happy to be proven wrong.

    Agree.

    Say what they like but my girls LOVE the sound of the Sprint, and my eldest remembers the XYGT as daddy's Vroom Vroom car.

    Its the sound she remembers.

    I don't think the appreciation of automotive sound has changed. Holden need it to change, they have no option but to steer it that way.

    OMG and I thought rotary’s sounded bad, this is going to test the Holden faithful, I know I can say that if Ford ever went this way and sounded like this, I’m out.
