That had the LSA and not the LS9. I don't think it was a W1 in this video. Just a track pack GTS.

Their are 2 GTSR's that both look pretty much the same but the Normal GTSR misses out on the LS9, the Supashock Suspension and the Semi Slick tyres but has the same basic look. W1 also gets the W1 Badges, Carbon Fiber Details and (from memory) a slightly different colour rim.

Non W1 GTSR is just a tarted up GTS (Gets the 435KW LSA)

What kind of moron would pay that for a commodore anyway? Unless it was a Bathurst racer or something.

GoAuto reporting the auction fell short of the reserve by $12,490 (or the $100k markup over retail)

Says the same for the guy who shelled out $236,100 for the final Falcon GT.

Now that's money well spent.

Could be worse. Could have a 100k painting hanging on the wall.

The funny thing when one car such as this sells for well above the odds to an unique individual that can truly afford to own and buy it, the herd mentality of other owners becomes "that's what they are now worth" .................

Well I don't know, but surely someone with a lazy $250k to spend on a car can't be too moronic. Less moronic than complaining about how people spend their own money on online forums anyway.

Power is as expected however the rwnm number is a bit low. Methinks the tune like the gts is very conservative.
I just had mine tuned with airbox install and made 315rwkw stock and 385rwkw tuned with 910nm. The torque in these engines is pretty strong.
