Love, I remember watching Bathurst in Newcastle while on holidays when the GT-R won in the rain (can't remember the year). Was just after my grandma won the Pintara hatch we drove as the family car and my obsession with Nissan was starting...

I am a locked in supporter already :)

That motor is detuned to the shit house
Don't let the opinions of the average man sway you. Dream, and he thinks you're crazy. Succeed, and he thinks you're lucky. Acquire wealth, and he thinks you're greedy. Pay no attention. He simply doesn't understand.

to be fair, it wouldn't be ANTRX if we stayed on topic.

Yup, now just think that the factory car released to the general public will have more power than a Nissan v8 super car.

They had to down stroke these motors from factory to adhere to the v8 super cars rules and regulations to match the power of the boats (ford/Holden)

Mercedes Line up

Erebus Motorsport has unveiled its brand-new Mercedes-Benz E63 AMGs at a launch event in Sydney Olympic Park this evening.

All three of the team’s entries for Lee Holdsworth (IRWIN Racing), Tim Slade (HHA Racing) and Maro Engel (SP Tools Racing) were unveiled at the cocktail function.

The Erebus E63′s feature an aggressive V8 Supercars bodykit, sporting the company’s own variant of the end-plate rear wing designs seen on the new-generation Ford Falcon FGs and Holden Commodore VFs.

The Australian GT Championship squad has taken over the Stone Brothers Racing operation this season after sealing a Customer Sports deal with AMG in Germany.

While granted a license to use Mercedes-Benz badges on the cars, the Erebus team receives no direct support from Mercedes-Benz Australia.

The cars are powered by a bespoke 5.0 litre V8 Supercars version of the Mercedes-Benz M159 engine seen in the company’s SLS GT3 race cars.

The Mercedes-Benz V8 Supercars will make their first public appearance on Saturday at Sydney Motorsport Park.

I am disappoint.

Neither the Mercs or the Nissans even got anywhere near a podium finish in Adelaide on the weekend?

I reckong they have a grace period of at least 4 races to get their shit together, lol.

Ha Ha fair call.

They have a while to go tuning/setting up before I reckon they will be at their A game. I do know some of their cars had an issue with the drivers footwell etc overheating resulting in some melted shoes and burnt feet!

Sucky that Nissan and Merc have to detune their cars as well but oh well.

Flipside is the footage you can hear you can hear the differences between the Pushrods and Quadcam mo fos!

Channel 7 better get their act together with footage and consistency!

Adelaide was a bloody good weekend. I was in the Clipsal box next to the podium above the pits where the clipsal girls spend most of their time.  It was great to hear the difference in the cars. And i was was proud to wear my Nissan hat.

 I agree with SSS, give them half a season and it should get entertaining.

Volvo will once again try to change its staid image and bring an end to Volvo jokes by joining the V8 Supercar racing series in 2014 -- even though it does not sell a V8 car locally.

 The Swedish brand’s arrival brings the number of car makers competing in the Australian V8 championship to five, joining Holden, Ford, Nissan and Mercedes-Benz.

Unlike the Mercedes deal which is privately funded, the Volvo race program is being backed by the factory, albeit paid for by Volvo Australia. Volvo will develop a V8 in Sweden especially for the race series even though it no longer offers a V8 in its passenger car range.

Melbourne-based Garry Rogers Motorsport, formerly a Holden-backed operation, will run the two-car Volvo team. There are no plans to change the current driver line-up Scott McLaughlin and Alex Premat, the team says. Volvo Australia said it is a “multi-year” deal but would not disclose how exactly how many years.

When asked if this would finally put an end to Volvo jokes -- after earlier racing campaigns, which included the late racing legend Peter Brock, failed to break perceptions -- the boss of Volvo Australia Matt Braid said: “I think we’re already there. That heritage has disappeared. I think there is some residual in older age groups … but times have changed and I’m sure the V8 series will enhance it.”

Volvo said the racing campaign shows the company is “competing on the track and in the marketplace”, although its sales are down 10 per cent in a market that

is up by 4.5 per cent so far this year. Not having a V8 to sell to the public will not backfire on the brand, says Volvo, “because there isn’t a racing series in the world that’s tied to production cars these days”.

The rule-changes to V8 Supercars this year mean the race cars no longer need to technically resemble their road-car cousins. The formula appears to be working. Last season four drivers from two teams shared 30 race wins. So far this year eight drivers from five teams have shared 19 race victories.

Volvo's announcement coincides with Volvo’s unveiling of a high-performance sedan powered by a turbocharged six-cylinder engine, called the S60 Polestar and valued at $109,950.
