There are two engine variants available, a supercharged V6 engine for the Monaro CV6 and a Generation III V8 engine for the Monaro CV8.
The dynamic profile of this two-door evolves directly from the form of the current Commodore. Following its genesis as a series of hopeful sketches by young stylists, the coupe concept took on a life of its own through the commitment of a small team of designers and engineers determined to build it, and then by sheer force of personality once it entered the public arena.
The Monaro echoes the contours of the original design study, its on-road presence characterised by accentuated body curves, a raked roofline, extended door and elongated glass areas. Its lowered lines and stylishly abbreviated rear end are emphasised in silhouette, advertising aerodynamic purpose. The tail lamps feature new generation quartz halogen projector headlamps with black bezels, fog lamps and a specific grille set the Monaro further apart, as do its seven exterior paint finishes.
Leather trim is standard on both Monaro models and the seating system is unique. Contoured front seats offer eight-way power adjustment and an electric slide fold-forward system allows ready access to rear seats. The coupe will accommodate four adults in comfort and - in the case of the CV8 in particular - individual style. The leather trim on CV8 models is available in four colours, selected to harmonise with particular exterior finishes, and these are complemented by coloured sports-style instrument clusters with a textured overprint.
