Hayden's HSV GTO Coupe

Hayden's HSV GTO is a 2002 model with the 255kW 5.7 litre V8 motor and 6-speed manual gearbox. It's Sting Red in colour and has chromed 18-inch wheels -- they're the standard wheels, but the chroming sure improves them. Hayden's car also has the premium brake package, which includes better calipers and cross-drilled discs.

Autospeed's HSV GTO review said the car is a "wonderful, unique car - fast, safe, easy to drive," and I don't know if I could say it better; except to say it's heaps of fun! But they had an auto test car so where's the fun in that?

A pretty tasty car for a young fella, you might agree, but old blokes always notice the car and talk about the Monaro they had back in the day. Hayden's response to that is to say "it's not a bloody Monaro! It's a HSV GTO Coupe mate." Don't be angry at the old people, just feel sorry for them.

** Update **

Hayden has kindly given us a couple of videos to put on thrashcar. One is a burnout video; it's done at night and it's a little bit dark, but the GTO still flicks around without any effort. The other video is a 0-100km/h run; you car's overspeed setting was set to 100km/h, and you can see it flash on near the speedo needle when the car gets to 100.
