    It does raise a very interesting question though, how much of the ZB Homologation, including this engine program was funded by Holden and not Roland?? Is Roland double dipping with the R+D cost included in the ZB composite kit @ $70K?
    V8 or TTV6, People are not going to buy a road version ZB commodore for its performance.

    Incredibly so as it was based on the VE/VF Zeta platform with engineering done here in Aus. Think about that. Take a RHD car and make it LHD only. Only GM could do that.

    What skyline? No one wants to see a v36 racing.

    I have seen one. At best it looked inoffensive, at worst boring. Bland colour too - as white.

    So it fits the "mid sized economically priced FWD Sedan/wagon" mould perfectly.

    Welcome to the most crowded segment in the C/D size class.

    FFS its only been in showrooms 2 months and there's less than 1000 registered across the nation!

    I've seen a few, either in shopping centres or out the front of dealerships.
