Slight improvement over the very boring and bland design.

Woww, the australian built car might be getting much better in sales soon (hopely)

Nice, but I find the rear end, bumper and wing, looking horrible. And for some reason, the GTO looks really high.

Not bad, better looking than the regular GTO I think. Those are some dull brakes, they almost look like ceramics.

I just saw a Yellow one of these on the road last night (or maybe two nights ago)<p>It looked sweet

In that particular shot, the car does look very high, <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/cwm13.gif" BORDER="0"> . As far as new changes, I only like the new spoiler, and the new bumpers are hideous. GM should really hurry with the '07 replacement.

What in the world...? What do you see that I can't? All I see is a GTO and some Ford Territory-looking kinda thing.

It is the ford freestyle, which was apparently inspired by the territory concept. That is why ford got all of those hundreds of millions from detroit to actually build it, because they where so impressed with the Australian design. Comon ford stick a BOSS 290 kilowatt V8 into it!!! I personally think that the territory looks better than the freestyle.

But you can but the 270kW Turbo Six engine which has plenty of potential.

YEA! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/sleep.gif" BORDER="0"> Still looks like a Cavalier on crack. GM just keeps beating the classic nameplates into the ground.

I'm not feeling the Excitement......Maybe they need more cladding or something.... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/nixweiss.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Isn't the Aussie Monaro an all-new model gen this year?

Huh? This GTO has the new GEN IV and some cosmetic changes, that's about it. The Australian Monaro has some styling changes and retains (but more powerful) GEN III.

Oh, sorry, I should've made myself clearer, I meant that the new VZ Monaro's GEN III has more power than the outgoing VY Monaro's GEN III.

Cavalier Mega? Looks more like a 2 door version of the old Opel/Cadillac Catera.

Game, set, match. The Mustang is the best reason NOT to buy a GTO. The GTO runs about 10k more expensive for only slightly more speed, and you're stuck with pleasant but forgettable styling. A total reskin is badly needed.
