Yes, I too read somewhere that GTO got his handle inspired by the Fezza GTO. And, The car doesn't belong in here as it is outside India. Nice car and nice pics nonetheless.

Don't get fooled by the GTO moniker.Its actually a re-badged Aussie Holden Monaro CV8.But a brilliant car nonetheless!

Monaros have been my favourite sleeeper cars, they don't look like a wannabe but, earn their respect from their performance.

Here's the VXR8 Bathurst S that I consider to be more balanced in appearance & performance.
