    Farewell to the HSV Maloo
    Australia builds some of the world’s most potent muscle cars. Here at Drive we’re lucky enough to have sampled the best of Down Under muscle, starting with a farewell fang in HSV's Maloo.

    I don't love drive tv, but this is interesting, especially when america will be getting the new model. This is based off the VT Platform *like the GTO*, you will be getting the VE platform ute. *like the G8*.

    He actually forgot a few things:

    1. When you drive them, because there tail end is so light, they are very easy to slide through corners. They've got stacks of grip, but when they lose it, its very easy to lose control.
    2. The 4 speed gearbox. Its rubbish, despite being faster get the manual.
    3. The sound and speed is just brutal. That kind of power in a commodore or GTO is fast, but put in a light 2 door ute and its something else.
