Question type: General

Where does the name "W427" come from in relation to the new HSV W427?

4 Answers

the 'w' stands for walkinshaw performance tuning and the 427 is how many cubic inches it is


Good man - obvioulsy a fan of the cars? Where you based?

in brisbane, i am a huge fan of cars, mainly supercars


Yeah me too - Im from the UK originally, so we had very few super saloons! Appart from the Lotus Carlton, nothing in a Normal price range existed, which is why I just love the HSVs over in NZ! Even the family-type SS Commodores are damn good value!
