    So realise, that at last...the VX220 has the right number with it...

    220 PS....yes..thats right....tweaked...with Speedline Black alloys, black boot spoiler and proper suspension (see...the Turbo WAS soft and they bloody knew it)

    Black V on the front, black fuel filler (all of this is matt black ) cross drilled brakes front AND back...

    its just gorgeous

    0-60....4.2

    Jiff...get your wallet out matey.....you know its the one

    and for Trig to get his whang out over...

    Monaro....387 PS....thats not bad is it matey ?

    and RED is the way to go
