2002 Holden Monaro CV8 Series II

Holden has introduced an updated Series II version of its highly popular Monaro sports coupe. The dynamically designed new millennium Monaro has dominated the sports car market segment since it hit the showrooms 12 months ago.

While the sleek exterior look remains largely unchanged, the Series II Monaro CV6 and CV8 models are distinguished by fresh interior styling treatments which include a new instrument panel with binnacle-style clusters and multi-function digital displays and a new steering wheel design. In addition, body structure refinements combine with powertrain improvements to offer better-than-ever build precision, performance and safety.

The top of the range Monaro CV8 is now powered by a 235kW high output version of Holden’s Generation III 5.7 litre V8 engine, complemented by a specially tuned twin exhaust system.

Inside, the new-look cockpit features a smoothly integrated and redesigned instrument panel with updated controls and graphics, a centre console incorporating large screen readout radio fascia and smart four-spoke steering wheel.

The CV8 sports a black Anthracite centre fascia with silver-accented surrounds, colour-coded instrument clusters and alloy pedal covers. Its leather-trimmed steering wheel, new design park brake and transmission shifter feature colour-coded stitching and satin chrome highlights; door handles are also satin chrome.
