    No surprise the Boss engine would get smoked by the LS3.

    The GT is still a nicer car though imo.

    its a collectors item, not a mainstream car.

    Only 427 of them are ever being made, and at twice the price of a HSV GTS for very minimal performance gains, its not really that big of a deal for most people.

    Those show pictures don't capture it very good, i think the actual car will look very tough.

    I suspect they will be garage queens though, rarely actually driven.

    the front is going to look good in black. It will all blend.
