We’ve never been to Australia, but from what we’ve heard, the rivalry between the Holden Commodore HSV GTS and the Ford Falcon FPV is akin to what we see between the Ford Mustang and the Chevy Camaro here in the United States. But with four doors, and steering wheels on the wrong side of the car. Nevertheless…
To compare, the HSV GTS is the most powerful series production vehicle ever built in Australia and features a 6.2 liter supercharged V8 making a whopping 576 hp and 545 lb-ft of torque. The Falcon, meanwhile, sports a 5.0 liter supercharged V8 churning out 449 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, and the R-Spec is a rather recent addition to the FPV line.
