Morning Symphony: How About A Little Aussie Rock, Courtesy Of A Twin-Turbo Monaro?

Zoran Gajic’s Monaro is known as “Brutus”. Hm…wonder how it got that name? Holden Monaros of any generation are the ones you want…Holden’s offering that grasped at the two-door coupe/sedan arena calls out several GM products at once just on looks alone: the front resembles a Chevelle or Monte Carlo, the lines from the door back echo a bit of second-gen Camaro, and the lights-in-bumper look line up with just about every mid-sizer that GM sold during the same time period. But the Holden is unique among it’s GM North America cousins in body design, being an Australian-penned look, and whenever us Yanks get an eyeful of them, they tend to look like this one: purpose-built and full of menace. How many unmodified second-gen Monaro coupes are left down there, really? Every last one seems to be running on hellfire and ready to chew up whatever twin-turbo six-cylinder Japanese import it’s paired off with. This footage is part of the Workshop Wars setup, where four shops are battling it out for supremacy. GAS Racing is fielding two cars, a 2JZ-powered RX-7 and the black beauty below, and currently lead the charge. With performances like this, chances are good that they will stay on top of that board!
