The third generation of Holden Monaro was introduced in 2001 and spawned two different iterations before production ceased in June 2006.

It was first unveiled to besotted crowds at the 1998 Australian International Motor Show in Sydney.

In fact, the response from both the general public and the media alike essentially ensured that the new face of the classic marque would make it to production.

The first iteration of the new Monaro was the V2, and was based on the underpinnings of the VX Commodore.

There were two different specifications the Monaro could be had in; CV6 and CV8. The former scored a 3.6lt supercharged V6, while the latter had a 5.7lt V8 slotted under its bonnet.

These engines could be mated to either four-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual.

In 2003, the V2 Series 2 was released, and featured a new dash based of that of the VY Commodore as well a redesigned steering wheel.

This Monaro is a 2003 V2 Series 2 and, according to the seller, has an original 111,000 kilometres on the clock from new.

The seller adds that the Monaro has been meticulously maintained and has full log books and Holden service history.

It’s priced at $26,500 and anyone after an iconic piece of Australian automotive muscle can view the full listing here.
