American design is shocking. They only make Mustang and Corvette and the F-Series trucks that look good. Everything else is just gross..

I think that looks great, but still keeps the monaro's great shape,IMO.
Give me a Yellow GTO anyday.

Too bad, it should be offered as an option.

Re: No Scoops for new Monaro in Oz

why the hell are they still using the VT/X shape though. To me it says they dont particularly like the VY/YII design.

I think its a shame because with the angles of the VY (maybe not VYII), I think the monaro could have looked a lot more modern. ah.....what can ya do.

Re: No Scoops for new Monaro in Oz

I just hope we dont see ppl retro fitting the hood scoop bonnets onto fully sick V6 commies.

Without the scoops the Munro looks sweet
ill take a lowered black one

Re: No Scoops for new Monaro in Oz

I guess we will see when it comes out as every article besides this one said that it will have the scoops.

Monaro sales have died this year maybe something radical is what they need to sell a few.
