It would be safe to say the current Maloo with the 317kw LS3 engine has the fastest quoted 0 - 100 time ex factory. The VS model had a 185kw engine and was about 2 seconds slower 0 - 100 ex factory in around 7 seconds.

Well My old Vs s pac V8 auto used to do it in 5.9secs (average out of 5 attempts) with a cat back exhaust, k&n filter with ss induction kit and a billet servo, 2 of those seconds through it had wheel spin due to the servo. I am currently looking for a Vs maloo too, i tell ya there is not much between my old s pac and my current gts. Well .8 of a second to be exact :D

From VG through to the VS111 They were very similar in 400m times. The VG had 180kw and 400Nm of torque, VS11 at VT was last with the 185i. The VS 111 had the 195kw and 430Nm. VS 111 carried alot more weight than the earier ones due to safety equipment etc. From memory with press releases they weren't very quick in standard form. Something like 15.3 for VG to 15.8 for the last VS. The weight probably caused the slower 1/4 mile. Or bad driving.
