Random Facts
A typical V8 Supercar produces power around 470kw / 615nm from a 5.0 litre V8!

Both Ford and Holden engines are based on racing engines from their respective US parent companies. Ford V8 Supercars run a 5.0 litre "Windsor" SVO race engine, while Holden V8 Supercars run a 5.0 litre Chevorlet Aurora race engine.
Greg Murphy is the only V8 Supercar driver in recent history to have secured pole position on debut!

From 2013, Nissan will provide a third manufacturer to the series, providing a V8 Sedan to Kelly Racing. Although they bear some resemblance to the production models outwardly, they are built from the ground up to suit the motorsport application.

The minimum car weight is 1355 kg (2987 lbs.) (without the driver).

A Dunlop "control tyre" is supplied to all teams. For race meetings, teams are allocated a set number of tyres for the entire weekend, with the number available for each race depending on the type of race (sprint or endurance).

The series adopted a softer, higher performance "sprint tyre" during the 2009 season although it is not used during every race meeting. Several race meetings now combine the use of compulsory soft and hard tyres which provides additional race strategy to the usual compulsory pit stops and safety cars.
