Aimed squarely at the car enthusiast, Monaro is set to break hearts – but not bank balances – when it arrives in the UK this summer. Everyone will be impressed by its stunning good looks, while petrolheads will be hypnotised by its sheer power and ability. No one will be left unaffected.
Expected to find particular favour with affluent, 30-something, car-aware men, Monaro is a sports coupe with a fantastic twist. Boasting enormous power, drivability and presence, Monaro will easily seat four adults in comfort. So, as well as being a terrifically good drive – thanks in no small way to its 5.7 litre V8 engine and RWD set-up – it’s also extremely practical.
And, while it’s no small investment at £28,650, it is an investment, and it does offer great value for money and an impeccable heritage.
The perfect choice for grown-ups who haven’t quite grown up, Monaro offers the very best of all worlds. It can be a well-set-up car to hoon around the streets in, or it can be a stylish way to transport family or friends. It can be dressed up for serious transport, or it can be allowed to break free from convention. It can be a touring car fan’s muse, or it can be a comfortable way to endure traffic jams. In fact, Monaro can be anything you want – or need – it to be.
A stylish way to stand out from the crowd, Monaro is the kind of car that screams successful professional, who doesn’t follow the rules and prefers to cut their own way through the world.
It’s a legend in Australia; it’s going to be legendary in the UK too.
