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?



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.

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


And the Mercedes Benz CLK DTM


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.
