X Factor Cars have built a nation-wide reputation on being Southland’s home of V8. We still pride ourselves on being Southland’s largest stockists of American modern and classic muscle, and Australian built Holden, HSV and Ford, FPV. Since the closure of both Holden and Ford manufacturing plants in Australia it’s been a challenge to replicate our previous stock levels, however we still have some pretty solid contacts – if you’ve got your heart set on something special, let us know. We’ll make it happen!
