In-game descriptionEdit

"A cool Australia-born sportscar recognized by the world market."


While the Mustang reigned supreme in the U.S. in the 1960s, the car of choice in Australia was the Holden Monaro, a stylish coupe with an emphasis on muscle. Holden was General Motors' Australian division. In 1968, the first-gen Monaro was elected Australia's Car of the Year, and more important to race fans, dominated the Bathurst 1000, the country's most popular and prestigious race.

Fast forward 33 years: The introduction of a new Monaro caused almost as big a stir as the original did. The new Monaro's appeal lay in its no-nonsense 2-door styling and powerful V-8. In fact, the car caught attention of performance enthusiasts outside the country and ultimately made its way to the stateside as the Pontiac GTO here.

But the car enjoyed the most popularity in its home country. There were two engine choices offered, a V-8 and a supercharged V-6. The 333-ps V-8 (the same 5.7-liter pushrod powerplant as the Chevrolet Corvette) was clearly the enthusiasts' choice. It came mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic gearbox. The CV8 trim level, equipped with Bridgestone Potenza tires, could run to 62 mph in under six seconds and to the 400-m mark in 14.5. And with its near-neutral handling, this FR car (Front-engine, Rear-drive) was said to be the best vehicle in the history of Holden.
