A decade after blowing Sydney revheads away with the surprise unveiling of a reborn Monaro, Holden has caught the motoring public unawares again with a new coupe … and the result is stunning.

One word kills all the hype: "concept"

The reveal in 98 also used the word concept.

This will be built, Lutz has said so.

Hi Andrew,
While listening to the news, Greg Pierce does nothing for me, I was certain that there was discussion about two cars, one is production ready and as indicated above, the second is a concept vehicle.

Cheers,
Wayne.

Hi Andrew,
Yep, I understand where you are coming from. There is a fine line between "actual and factual"l and the advertising companies "sometimes" over-step the mark. I'm still looking forward to seeing one in the flesh................ our famiily has had a long association with the Holden logo and I'm curious to see where it goes from here.
Cheers,
Wayne.

I'd have a guess that they will call it a monaro because it's simply not good enough to establish its own great repuation.

That's a big call Gone Bush.

370 Kw and 640 Nm.
0-100 kmh in under 5 seconds.

I think I'm ready for my mid-life crisis....where do I sign :-)

Yep Stefan theres a pic in the Herald Sun today and I reckon the roofline at the rear looks dodgy

designed for US market

rear looks odd - like they wanted a wider track but didn't want to build the whole car
