    I'll start.

    The Chevrolet Camaro. Or failing that the Pontiac G8.

    Or perhaps the Vauxhall VXR8...

    I'm not sure whether or not you were being delibrately contrary, Ferrer, but none of those are technically sold in Australia.

    For the record, my vote goes to the HSV W427.

    I think those three cars could be a nice case in a country-bases intellectual property right lawsuit... I am sure devious Ferrer was implying that

    Rebadging the vehicle means you should simply vote for the original.

    In those cases, the HSV Clubsport.

    Ford G6E Turbo gets my vote.

    Theres not that many vehicles eligible. Other than the G6E Turbo, theres the XR6 Turbo and XR8 Falcons, the FPV F6 and GT range, the HSV W427 and perhaps you'd consider the LS3 HSV's candidates, although they were just a running change with the new engine.

    Of those that i can think of, the G6E Turbo stands out for practicality, performance, affordability and economy.

    because what you actually want to say is that Australia does not produce any car in this category isn't it?

    Well nominating Australian cars is easy.

    Just write always Falcon and Commodore.

    The end.
