No GM car will be recognized as supercars as long as they use the damn LS variants. Heres an idea, Develop a new engine for once.

Once again Holden gets it right. This time using the big Corvette V-8. It may share a platform with the Camaro (and it doesn’t have the history) but this is the GM car to have. I’m moving to Australia damnit!
