...Is that just a special version of the Monaro CV8? I always thought they should bring the Monaro here.

I've always known about the holden...but I didn't know that the mofo had 402HP until now...I thought that it used to just have the 320HP version of the 5.7 engine. And I'm used to seeing the 4-door version that looked like a souped up Cadillac Catera...this is my first time seeing the 2-door.

I would just like to point out that the car pictured is the HSV coupe GTO, which has a 5.7 litre V8 and putting out about 340HP (the low end HSV :Q :D ). The GTS has slightly different styling and 402HP + 19" wheels + other stuff ;). check www.hsv.com.au for more if you haven't already

The car is just one big polluting mofo. We need to start driving electric cars with no more than 10 horsepower.

the HSV coupe GTO is about $70,000 AUS.... so about $35,000 US. and the HSV coupe GTS is about $100,000AUS which works out to $50,000US.

Even crazier news. I believe Holden exports their Statesmen to the Middle East as Chevy Caprices!!

linky

In the middle east, they put the 5.7L in the Chevy Lumina still!! Its still RWD, BTW. Its funny because the lumina and the Caprice both put out more HP and torque than the camaro.
