2004 Holden Monaro CV8 Series III

Holden continues to add value and refinement to Australia’s most popular passenger car range with the launch of a completely updated prodcut range. The strong-selling Holden Ute and the country’s number one sports car in the Monaro coupe benefit from feature upgrades.

A new high-output GEN III 5.7 litre V8 engine, producing peak power of 245kW @ 5,600rpm, is now specified on Commodore SS sedan, SS Ute, the Commodore SV8 and Monaro CV8.

To complement its high-output 245kW V8 performance, the Series III Monaro CV8 gives buyers the choice of an exclusive, high-visibility new exterior finish called Impulse.
