I don't know what sort of cars you are particularly looking for (strictly international or some domestic only) but as a comparison with the Monaro could we possibly have the FPV F6 Typhoon?

http://img494.imageshack.us/img494/6...per11xd.th.jpg

Edit: (see below)

Background:

FPV is a 51/49% Prodrive/Ford group that produce performance versions of Ford Australias performance line-up.

Ford Australia introduced the XR6Turbo late in 2002. This was powered by a turbocharged 4 litre straight 6.

A couple of years later FPV finally released their souped up version of the XR6Turbo. And indeed it was this the F6 Typhoon. The car featured a bigger turbocharger and re-mapped ECU, along with that massive intercooler that you can see in the front grille. Power is just 270KW however Torque is a massive 550Nm. At release it was the torquiest Australian produced car of them all. I think that it still is, however I am not 100% sure.

Since its release it has received critical acclaim (aside from an early clutch issue that halted production for a couple of months).

So essentially the car is not unlike the Monaro except it has a big turbocharged 6 rather than a big V8. They are both a bit on the heavy side, they are both pretty fast (although this one is actually speed limited to 230kph or 140 odd mph) and they both drink a lot of fuel.

In Australian spec the Fords tend to be set up more for a sideways sliding experience than the Holdens, how it compares to the Vauxhall set-up however I have no idea.

you might need to provide some more background info on the car for the non-Aussies who have no idea what it is. :wink:

I love the F6 - my neighbours got one and it sure looks the goods!

Fantastic topic! This topic will bring some good arguing (I hope)

As a proposition I would like to suggest the BMW Alpina Roadster
http://img398.imageshack.us/img398/3...side4vp.th.jpg

And the Mercedes Benz CLK DTM
http://img398.imageshack.us/img398/9...ront8zz.th.jpg

And off course what we have to say about Jeremy's car...the SLK 55 AMG...

Just an idea ;)

I also think that's a good idea, but maybe it's better not to work with the total of (let's say) subzero votes but with the percentage subzero votes to the total of votes.
