  • We conclude our '50 years of the Holden Monaro' feature with a look at the unique specials and one-offs that helped form part of the Monaro.

    It took no time at all for Australia's motoring fraternity to bestow the legendary Monaro name on the concept, and Holden applied the historical.

    The concept car concept is translated as "the idea of a car". This is a kind of prototype car, which tests people's reactions to new technologies being introduced, design solutions, etc. In its original form, prototypes are never launched into mass production.

    How about a new Holden Monaro? The last coupe, penned by former design boss Mike Simcoe and based on the VT Commodore, proved wildly popular. Could a new muscly two-door Holden, based on the VF Commodore , pull the same trick? We think so, but with Australia's automotive manufacturing future looking cloudy, a new niche model like the Monaro is unlikely.

    Still, that didn't stop designers close to the VF Commodore project from imagining how such a model might look. The 3D model shown here was conceived as a side project by Holden designers Simon Gow and Peter Hughes, with assistance from design group, Dsine International.

    Dsine says the concept was kicked off by designer Toby Robinson as a part of his digital sculpting training at Holden Design, under the guidance of senior modeller Dave Kaylor from Dsine International. Holden was quick to deny rumours of a Monaro comeback, of course.

    It would take a strong export opportunity to make this one happen - and with the related Camaro already on the international Chevrolet roster, the Monaro is very unlikely to make a return. At least, for now, thanks to a design team who dared to dream, we will have these images to remind us of what could have been.

    This looks to me like it has been created with an eye to production viability. It looks amazing and with the premium pricing of the Chevy SS in the States, they could easily sell this without stealing sales from Camaro. Coupes are quite popular over there so if you sold this for a grand or two above the 4-door, I reckon it would do OK. Given the strength of V8 sales in the VF line-up, it could work here, too. Visually the shoulder line sits awkwardly too high which could make for poor side visibility.

    Would be better to take in mind design tips from a couple of Opel concept cars. It's not high shouldered, it's the roof that's low. Wheelbase is too long and looks ugly for it. I thought it would look so much better as with a shorter wheelbase, so did a really quick photoshop to get an idea. Well, it's obviously a quicky - the too-low roofline is the main problem - but overall I agree the true concept's wheelbase 'looks' too long.
