Gen-F R8 SV Manual
So it has some very small (and extraneous looking) additions to the headlights, but otherwise looks almost identical to current model.
The balloon tyre sidewalls suggest that is a very low spec model in the images.

It will be very interesting what PSA/GM does next. This midlife facelift was always going to happen, but PSA will need to replace the European Insignia. They could stop as the private market is poor for midsize saloons, but fleet buyers need something cheap and cheerful, and 508 is probably too upmarket.
Will any newly developed Opel/Vauxhall be offered to GM for the Aus market?

I suspect GM will just drag more Korean or Thai-built stuff in; they won't renew Astra or Commodore from PSA, although I would expect the Astra name to continue - they were selling the Cruze here as the Astra sedan already.

Opel/Vauxhall/Seat will have their own variants of PSA-platformed vehicles, but we won't see them here, at least not with a Holden badge.

Unless of course General Motors pulls out of Australia altogether, and sells the rights to the name to Inchcape - who import Peugeot and can access Opel

There's more speculation, but that's all it is - speculation...

Has there not been talk that Holden will take the US buiolt Chevrolet CT5? Which has a twin turbo 3.0L V6. It just needs to made RH Drive. The US model was spotted in August in Victoria being tested on Aussie roads . The V6 engine in the ZB is made in the US now

I thought the V6 for the ZB came from the USA.

Yes as I said the US which is short for USA.
Sorry I didn't read your post correctly.

The Cadillac testing would be for GM Powertrain which we are the experts in the GM World.
