I would like to know what Holden products it's supposed to be show-casing besides the sticker on the windscreen.

Pff....don't even bother...the car doesn't look that good to begin with...even in sedan version! Might be a push from Holden to get more behind their ute (which is still behind the Ford utes in the sales war). Hey, they should have ute racing at V8 Supercar events. That'd be interesting.....

eek

Looks OK to me, a bit plain in the paint department though. How d othey get the power to the ground, a ute is a lot lighter than a sedan.
I think Ford do need to do an XR8 version.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

I like the look very much but i think the front bumper faces down too much. I think we'll be seeing Ingall doing some demonstrations like he did with the SS ute:)
