    It's the UK version of the car Jeremy Clarkson reviewed on Top Gear.

    It's a rebadged Holden HSV GTO with 19" HSV GTS wheels, different exhaust tips, and a European rear fog lamp integrated into the rear bumper.

    They also sell the regular 302HP Monaro there with Vauxhall badges.

    It should be since it costs nearly $70,000 US.

    I can build one here for less than half that much. :o

    We really have it good in the US.

    A 302HP Monaro starts at $41,876.09 US in Australia, and the 339HP version the UK gets costs $50,149.77 US.

    The 380HP HSV Coupe GTO costs $53,572.98 US in Australia, and UK version is $68,062.63 US. The 402HP HSV Coupe GTS costs $68,813.86 US in Australia.

    Our 350HP Pontiac version costs only $33,190 US. :)

    From all the complaints i.e. no scoops, not look like the original gto etc, killed of the birds. I think Holden should just forget about america. Obviously its more about looks there than actual performance or quality. Leave the americans with their FWD, scooped, with stripes, and fancy spinners.

    That certainly is a relief. From the internet replies, you and I are a dying breed. I love POWER, handling, lux and that sleeper look. Its seems that many just wants to look "bad ass".

    Could the bodywork/lights etc be imported and put on a GTO? Cause that looks good.

    Holy Back From The Dead BUMP, Batman! :mamoru:


    The LS2 GTO should shame that thing quite handily, I suspect. For $45k too. :x:

    HSV GTO body kit (front fascia, skirts, rear bumper, spoiler) - $6,643.62 USD

    HSV GTO roof spoiler - $403.18 USD

    HSV GTO 18" wheels - $2,880.15 USD

    HSV GTS 19" wheels - $4,330.93 USD

    And add $800 or so for shipping. OEM GM parts aren't cheap, but they are readily available for those who want them in the US.

    I want to do this to a Phantom Black GTO, but after seeing this red VXR, putting the kit on a Torrid Red GTO would look pretty dope as well. :drool:
