  • MONARO MK2 IS ON ITS WAY, www.pistonheads.com

    Vauxhall's brutish V8 saloon is due 2007

    That's according to Autocar this week, which reckons that the Luton-based car company is looking to import the Holden Commodore (pictured) to replace the now-defunct Monaro VXR.

    The Commodore's just been released in its native Australia to good reviews. With a 412bhp 6-litre V8 mated to a six-speed box and connected to the road via 20-inch alloys, this promises to be a brute of a car. Expect performance to be in the region of five seconds or less to 60mph, and a Vmax of around 170mph.

    But it's also slated to have improved handling compared to the rather basic nature of the previous Monaro. Features include magnetic dampers for a fast reacting suspension plus tuning from Holden's performance arm HSV, plus a rear diffuser, LED lamps. Inside you'll get leather and a flat bottomed steering wheel.

    And all it'll cost is about £40,000 when it arrives here in 2007.

    Nice one, mate...
