Yep, it's the match-up you've all been waiting for.
Holden has now installed the 6.2-litre LS3 V8 in its final VF II Commodore series, producing 304kW/570Nm and gifting it a wicked engine note.
The Ford Falcon XR8, of course, continues with the - ahem - 335kW/570Nm 5.0-litre supercharged Miami V8 that we're all now familiar with.
As explained in the video, we have a manual Holden and an automatic Ford, which will annoy plenty of people, however there are a couple of good reasons for that.
Firstly, a manual Redline is what we could source on the day and Holden also claims 4.9sec from 0-100km/h for the manual versus 5.0sec for the auto, so theoretically the manual is the faster car.
Finally, it's important to mention that there was a strong headwind on the day, so both cars ran a couple of tenths off the best numbers we've managed, however it was obviously the same for both cars.
