@sparky_buzzsaw: Yes it is, like the pontiac g8 gxp before it and the pontiac GTO before that. And sometimes you see crazy people re-badge their G8's or GTO's with holden badges (because they're crazy), but here stateside you're going to see Chevy, or whatever brand they think can support a true rear wheel drive muscle sedan. :)
Also- and anyone shoot me down if I'm wrong, I think based off of is not giving holden enough credit. I think they're building the model or straight up they designed the model. Anyways, you won't see holden (so sorry I don't think we get that sweet ute they have) come here to the states but you might see their models come over as other cars.
Agh, at least karma paid me back for my first corner antics. But damn it's fun to put that car in top gear and make a turn way wide so you don't have to slow down. What the rest of you don't know is that was an organic uprising of Furai. One then two then three people chose the car. Then sushi chose something different but came right back with a Furai when he saw what the score was.
