It is reported that GM’s Australian subsidiary is going to start producing a road-legal version of its Holden Efijy concept car. Since building the car from scratch requires too many time-consuming safety testing and certification procedures, the car is going to share its platform with an existing sports car, which is currently produced by GM. I am pretty sure that you have already guessed, which one it is going to be.
Australian Holden has just revealed its brand new Holden VE Ute series of performance pick-ups. The idea of a “performance” truck may look a little crazy here in Europe, but the guys down under seem to just love this kind of sporty vehicles. Anyway, a sporty truck is not any crazier than the famous German “off-roader” that jumps from 0 to 100 km/h in 5 seconds, tops 250 kilometers per hour and never leaves the paved surface.
Although being the least powerful and the cheapest car in the recently unveiled new Holden’s HSV E-Series, the 2007 Holden ClubSport R8 performance sedan is expected to become the most popular vehicle in the line-up. You see, with its 6-liter V8 monster of an engine and a top speed of more than 280 kilometers per hour, the sports sedan will start below $63,000 Australian dollars, which actually makes it one of the most affordable sports cars in its niche.
