V8 sportscar headed for Australia

Australian Muscle Car - - Muscle News -

AV8-pow­ered Holden hero will live be­yond the Com­modore. It’s not clear yet if it will be the Corvette or the Ca­maro, per­haps some­thing from Europe, or if the cho­sen one will ac­tu­ally wear a Holden badge, but GM in Detroit has def­i­nitely con­firmed a V8-pow­ered fu­ture in Australia.

“We will bring a Holden sports car in the fu­ture, in the near fu­ture,” con­firmed Ste­fan Ja­coby, head of Gen­eral Mo­tors In­ter­na­tional, at the Detroit auto show.

De­spite spec­u­la­tion of a Corvette, Holden in­sid­ers in Australia point more to the Ca­maro. They say the car will be com­pat­i­ble with right­hand drive pro­duc­tion and more suit­able for Aus­tralian cus­tomers.

It would also al­low Holden to go head-to-head again with Ford once the Mus­tang is in lo­cal show­rooms.
