Well it looks like the last “classic” rear wheel drive Commodore is going out with a bang.

The Holden VF Commodore SS V-Series shown this week has a 6.2-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine beneath its bright-orange aluminium bonnet, 0.2L larger than the engine in the outgoing VE Commodore SS and the same engine used in current HSV models.

Holden VF Commodore SS gets 6.2-litre V8, HSV to go supercharged |CarAdvice

I have got such wood for this thing it’s not funny. I can see a manual version somewhere in my future. I hope.

Let me double check, just in case, but I think we are not in Africa.

No, we aren't.

Or something.

Well, I was wrong.

Nah, there is no place for irony in FB.

Those people are genuinely stupid and can't really help it.

A shame. I thought they had a great sense of humour.

Anyway.

Could the 2003 Fulvia Coupe Concept Have Helped Revive Lancia? - Carscoops

There's this also.
