That car is cool. Monaro/GTO with AWD! It will be on sale in Australia by 2005 - but as a limited run from HSV. In the Australian market that means around 200-400 cars. HSV does not have the capacity to supply the US market with such a car.Originally posted by Beanboy
Read my post about an AWD LS1 car? Holden has a performance coupe and now a car-based crossover vehicle with AWD and a LS1 for sale in 2004. Even has a rear torque bias...
The GM guys that I spoke to at SEMA thought the car would never make it to the US market because the 'average' American buyer of the GTO would simply see AWD as 400lbs of extra weight.
Holden does have available a 5.7l V8 AWD wagon that was released this year - unfortunately - it only comes with a 4 sp Auto.
The AWD drivetrain was taken from this car - called the Adventra
