A supercharged Monaro you can't buy here

    Yeah, I know it's not a bike but still...

    The Poms can now walk into a Vauxhall dealer and buy a fully-warrantied Monaro that comes with a Harrop supercharger and 503 horsepower. That's 375kW, according to my abacus. Rather more mumbo than any offering from HSV, IIRC.

    Weirdly, they're selling these things for a thousand quid LESS than the standard non-supercharged version. :shock:

    Here's an article. They seem to like it. :grin:
