    Motortrend put one on the dyno according to their instagram. Wonder what it really makes?
    According to article below, the results were unclear but safe to say its punching above its stated weight.

      Australia never really produced anything in the LCT price bracket (few exceptions)

      LCT is tax the rich!

        The tax wasn't introduced or intended for protecting the car industry, however it's "very coincidental" that it was always about $5 more than a Fairlane or Statesman. It doesn't help that uninformed bloggers on the internet like this perpetuate the myths.

        LCT is entirely "tax the rich".

        They should replace it with a Dangerous & Fat Tax, where members of a board (which I will preside over) determine which vehicles will be labelled gerlytrux, and all gerlytrux will pay a flat 33% extra on every pre-GST dollar … except the DFT will be much fairer, as there will be no GST on the DFT proportion.

        Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

          Was talking to a dealer principle about 2 weeks ago and I'm sure that meeting should have already happened, though I've heard nothing from the dealer I left the deposit at. So maybe not.

          Liking the exterior in metallic blue but interior is a bit WTF for me. I think they let a 12yo kid go a bit too crazy trying to replicate knight rider or something.

            Possibly doing a Ferrari/Lamborghini and turned the wick up a notch on press cars.

                Forgot to post this, got a bullshit letter early Nov from the dealer I've had an EOI at since the USA announcement basically saying we don't know shit.
                That all said, since the embargo and reviews I've paid a bit more attention and the interior has really put me off. It's plain fucked from the videos?
                Gonna leave the deposit for now in the off chance Holden doesn't price it fucked but we all know what will happen there...

                  Probably no info because Holden won't be around in 12 months time

                    Why should GM tell Holden what they are doing. It's not like they are related in any way.


                    Perhaps we will get the Daewoo Corvette here?

                            That 'trunk' looks like it's designed to house a bunch of turbo stuff.
