Holden getting a shot of Corvette....

.....right under the hood....

I like the line at the end..."wrap your mind around the idea that what fits underneath the hood of this car should also fit in the engine bay of the Pontiac G8 and Chevy Camaro"...

well, if an ls7 can fit into a solstice (or was it a sky? meh) then there shouldn"t be much of a problem swaping a small block for a small block. Still cool though

Holden Coupe 60. Zeta Monaro!

This thing is basically a Zeta Monaro coupe. It's AMAZING.

Out of everything on that car, I think I like the seats the most. They look really cool. And rarely do I ever look at seats. Another interesting feature is that it is news from the future! Its dated tomorrow, I know this is because its from Australia and its tomorrow there already, but still its kinda weird

Holden HSV W427 Commodore

http://jalopnik.com/362090/hsv-w427-...-potentialmate

Yep... they did it. God lov'em they did it... they dropped the LS7 into a Commodore (AKA Pontiac G8).

GM

My god, I have an internet crush on Bob Lutz. He's just the friggin' man.

OK, so its now a TRUE M5 killer. 500hp. Performance suspension. Sweet interior (assumed). It's truly my dream car. Just sign me the f up for one. And PLEASE bring it over here.

I'm. Just. Speechless.

OK who knows why this is important-"Other racing-derived enhancements include full flat under body, rear underbody air diffuser and functional rear deck-lid spoiler with unique designed LED tail lamps." I hope I haven't started a discussion on lights again. I'm just asking about the flat under body. Why is that important?

Since when has it been too late??? I believe Scott told us we would see another Pontiac coupe... and this could be it. I really really like it, it's a different but ultra modern and ultra clean look. I dig it.

Aerodynamics. If its properly shaped it can created a low pressure zone and help with high speed cornerning and stability
