New Monaro?

17 posts in this topic

The latest issue of Motor magazine down here supposedly has a sneak peek. I haven't had a chance to look at an issue yet (I generally avoid the Oz car mags due to their GMH and Ford bias)...

Well there'll definitely be one, GM hasn't put the money into a new FR platform for nothing. A little concerned if theres a convertible appearing first, a four seat poser is hardly going to satisfy traditional Monaro and HSV fans. Lets just hope that they aren't refocusing the model.

Both horrible, prefer what I have.

The four door is almost a dead cert and will be known as the VXR R8.

Local Vaux dealer has already been intouch and offered me a price against the 4 door, but they can keep it thanks, prefer 2 door cars.

They are "common as muck" down here those body-kitted HSV makeovers...

The nicest current Commodore model IMHO is the current SS - it is straight from factory, not via Tom Walkinshaw's dodgy HSV line, and looks great and goes like hot dung.gif off a warm shovel. grin.gif
